Good reinforcement in between full reads

When I have a challenging day I can listen to the summary in a short time and get my head back on track.

Nonsensical!

I am an avid audible listener who has read and listened to the Dale Carnegie classic, but this summary made little sense. It begins with a long, silly, boilerplate legal disclaimer, skips around in a vague way, and seems to be written by someone whose native language is not English. After buying hundreds of books, I'm going to request a refund for the first time.

Truer words were never spoken.

Truer words were never spoken. It's definitely great rules for all of us to live by. There would be less hatred and fighting if everyone practiced these rules. Even if you've read the book in your earlier days, as I have, it was good to reread and refresh my memory. It also allowed me to look back at my life and see if I lived by these standards.

Enjoyed the stories.

Enjoyed the stories. Was new and relevant. Many of the stories I heard I was familiar with from previous books I read. For example, Zappos. It was a nice incorporation to show how to win friends and influence people in the digital age while staying in sync with Dale Carnegie's philosophy.

Please take the clothes peg of you nose

The reader sounds like as if a clothes peg blocks his nose. Extremely nasal reading. Has the producer listened to this? Please redo since the content is good
