      "Great ideas and information"

      Definitely worth a listen. I actually plan on relistening to it again in the near future. My only issues with this audiobook are these: The musical interludes are loud, poor quality, and overlap the audio making it difficult to hear sometimes. I dont think they're necessary at all. I also found the narrators voice difficult to listen to at times and not very easy on the ears, but this may be a personal thing.

      "exceptional"

      this should be required reading for everyone in the world. I cannot express the gratitude for the lessons that I have learned just from this one book. even though it was written great many years ago the principles still apply today

      "Mandatory reading"

      Everyone needs to read this book and I mean everyone. You'll learn a lot and use it in your everyday life from work, friends, family, and strangers. Not only that, but the reader dude is awesome. I could listen to him read books until the day I die and thensome.

      "Priceless"

      The title misrepresents the book's value➡priceless.

      If you have hesitation it should only be for time constraints.

      Read it like a friend.

      "Helpful. A tad redundant/obvious. Good reminders."

      ^ in a nutshell. Good for people who face any sort of trouble in managing people. More management focused than not.

      "Classic Book."

      This is just one of those books you have to read! Dale Carnagie discusses the simple yet diverse steps into the art of persuasion.

      "Life changing"

      This book is amazing. It gives you examples of how people have managed different situations successfully and unsuccessfully. It explains the ways to influence people without being false but just being nice. I wish I had listed to this book 20 years ago. I have been captivated. I find myself unconsciously changing my behaviour, what a difference it has made when working with my staff or playing with my children.

      "True Classic"

      This is one of those books that you will hear people talking about and this is also one of those books that it took me 30 years to get round to reading. I wish that I had done so earlier. This book has greatly improved my outlook on life and I can handle situations in a far slicker and more helpful way than before. excellent book, I would recommend it to everyone.

      This book is inspirational and still as amazingly relevant today as when it was written about 80 years ago!

      People skills are understated and this book helps you realise how important they really are.

      You must listen to this book!

      "I tried to be cynical...."

      ...but after reading this book I realise that most of my failings in business and personal life are easily-explained. Within a week I have already seen positive changes in my relationships with people. It can't be this easy can it?

      "Read every 10 years for an optimal life"

      I read this originally well over 30 years ago, and it is one of the books that has profoundly influenced my life. The essence is simply the golden rule: Do as to others as you would be done by. In a world where every one is (whether we like to admit it or not) out for themselves, it is still optimal to be loving and co-operative if you understand that life is essentially win-win: we gain ourselves by giving to others what they most want. And if they only give us back 80% of what they get, we are still both better off, because a lot of what we want (recognition, respect, affection) is FREE. So once this 'enlightened self-interest' gets a hold, out of the crooked stuff that man is made of, we find...we can all be happy! Read it, DC explains it better than I do.

      "timeless advice"

      this book is timeless. it offers great insights and examples of human behaviour. the only criticsm would be that it mainly deals with office and business. otherwise a great suggestion from a friend

      "Everyone should listen!"

      This is a great book not only for the subject matter, but also the excellent narration.
      While this book was written several decades ago, the principles are still as relevant now as they were back then. Some may say some of what Carnegie writes is common sense, but one could say the same thing about many self help books.

      I have used many of the tips and techniques in the book and am enjoying a more comfortable time at work. Well worth a try!

      "An American Classic"

      It is important to say that Old Dale?s book does exactly what it says on the tin and really does work. However,read from the point of view as a work of narrative fiction, this book also functions perfectly well and is hugely enjoyable. It presents as a work of early twentieth century Americana as much as the novels of Scott Fitzgerald or Upton Sinclair and presents a picture of American Society and in particular American corporate life that will be very familiar to anyone who has either worked with or visited the United States. I kept returning time and time again to a mental picture of an American corporate mentor of mine ? comfortable in his late middle age with all the assumptions of middle class life and, no doubt, many of its frailities?and heard his voice speaking from within these pages. ?How to win friends? informs so much of American Literature ? John Updike and Richard Yates are two particular but not exclusive examples ? so the book also becomes a valuable work of reference to the modern American psyche and the cultural revolution that has and is taking place in that great country.

      "Better than reading the book"

      I really enjoyed listening to this and managed to listen to it all in over a few weeks.

      The readers voice is warm and engaging and the advice went in.

      I enjoyed the book but definitely prefer the audio version.

      Highly recommend.
