      "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.

      "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?

      "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.

      "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.

      "If you apply it, then the advice really does work"

      I was attracted to the book as I wanted a better understanding of people for my job. I certainly didn't expect that it would change my whole approach to relationships, both Business and personal. Using the techniques suggested I have saved money, received more praise/thanks than I used to, improved both work and personal relationships, and have reduced my own frustration & stress. If people baffle you, or you don't get what you want from them - then read this book.

      "How can it still make sense?"

      But it just does, I've gone through life noticing the odd thing here and there and presuming great insight but only to find that Dale Carnegie has got there already.



      I bought this thinking it would be a cheesy reminder of the way we used to do business, but I couldn't have been more wrong. It all makes perfect sense and resinates today in all walks of life.



      Well worth a listen.

      "Still Relevant"

      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!

      "Don't bother"

      This stuff is almost common sense and very vague. Listen to the other one star reviews its all true.

      "Love this Book hate the narrator's voice"

      This book is classic unfortunately the narrator's voice is hard to deal with. He is wooden and monotone and he should be doing movie trailer voice overs. I have read this book and loved it but not sure I will ever listen to audio version again. I do not recommend this version..

      "Disappointed"

      I was stunned for real to hear the preface and first chapter. I was turned off. I guess my mind was numbed by the Freud comment and all that 'we are selfish' talk and generally are nice to people for what's in it for us. Not true. I read Norman Vincent Peales book The Power of Positive Imaging (thinking) and it blows this book out of the water. I read Norman's book 5 times over the years. It's that good. This book by Dale Carnegie might work for some people but it went on and on about how to do or say a kind thing to get what "YOU WANT" from the person. Norman teaches to do the kind things but for genuine purposes. This book leaves a very bad taste in my mouth. So disappointed because I know this book by Dale Carnegie was a success. Oh, well, I'm deflated. I wanted more help and guidance on helping others in a way that I can feel good about myself also not be taught how to have an alterior motive using the person to get ahead. pffftt...to each their own....

      Good book on conversational skills. Also beneficial for know-it-alls who presume they know how to have a conversation.

      Wish I read this book years ago. The reading is excellent and the content very valuable. The reader's conversational approach enhances retention of the material.

      "Dated"

      I haven't been able to finish this yet. It's tedious and rather pompous. The examples are dated.

      Interesting that Steven Covey, almost by name, discusses this book as a BAD example (7 habits). In Covey's book he specifically directs the reader NOT to work on the outer shell but to look inward. I'm not sure this book is ONLY working on the outer shell but it does seem to be the focus.

      "Out of date"

      This is a good book, and the basic principals are still valid, but the basics are so far out-of-date, they are almost not worth bothering with anymore.
