      "Superior"
      Would you listen to How to Win Friends & Influence People again? Why?

      The quality of this text is instantly relevant and the author's style is warmly companionable. It's hard to own how these simple, yet magnificent principles of honest relationship and real living can resonate so deeply and yet are so easily forgotten in the struggle through the ordinary difficulties of our "everyday" days. This book goes a long way towards putting genuine shoe-leather to the charge that we ought to esteem others as better than ourselves.


      What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Win Friends & Influence People?

      Yes, given my own interests and background, I appreciated the tale involving the lads, the fire, and the local park. I relish that the young boys are seeking to capture and dominate that sense of wildness and power and the mature man is seeking to preserve and protect his beloved park... that is his OWN beloved park. It is good to hear that others, perhaps better and more noble than I, have also experienced the awful heat of indignation and fallen prey to it.


      Have you listened to any of Andrew MacMillan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

      I have not had the pleasure- and I would be quick to listen to any other Mr. MacMillan has recorded because he provides an authenticity to the text in a splendidly comfortable manner.


      Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

      It is difficult to pinpoint a single moment given the familiarity of each vignette shared; the car dealership, the salesman, the late payment, the misidentified home-town, the recognition of a possible error in perception for an onlooker at a job-site, et al. The countless small and and grinding mistakes that anyone... everyone makes, might pile up like last years' leaves. Yet, each one is thoroughly scrubbed by the examples of encouragement, the hand-up, into honest behaviors of grace and kindness, shared just as boldly.


      Any additional comments?

      Thank you

      "Never gets old"

      I have read and annotated my hard copy of this book many times. I have read my kindle version many times, gifted this book to colleagues, and this is my second time listening. I love listening and being reminded of key points, it is well voiced with good pacing. listening to this book forced me to learn to how to bookmark in Audible. This boom can change your life. Not because it will change who you are - if you are a caring person looking for an expanded view on how to achieve success through improved human interactions, read away! If you are self centered and manipulative, you are most likely still going to be that way after reading this book. I can honestly say I have emerged from some tense professional situations with allies rather than enemies by employing the principles of this book. Happy reading!

      "Everyone should have this book"

      I have heard of this book for many years and always wanted to read it. The narrator is terrific and makes it that much better. It's a very good listen and helpful for anyone trying to be a better communicator.

      "Surprised by how useful it is"

      For instance just now, I sent a text that I believe had a much better effect (increase the chance that my helper will arrive on time) vs the text I probably would have written if I hadn't listened to the book ( The text I probably would have written might have hurt her feelings without improving the chances of her arriving on time).

      "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.

      "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.

      "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.

      "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?

      "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.

      "King of self development"

      Excellent book audio version superb read this book on a number of occasions and will always remain an all time classic in my opinion! Simple techniques but how many times do we forget to use them? I certainly forget so it's important to refresh every now and then. So well written and in my top 5 books! Anyone that wants to improve at work or in their personal lives I highly recommend this book! Ultimate classic!

      "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

      I honestly do wish I had read this years ago! Every parent, teacher, manager, supervisor- in fact every human being should read this book. I wonder how many relationships would have been saved if I had read this book as a young adult.
