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.
Classics,contemporary fiction, Politics, Philosophy, Economics - a weekly eye on The New Yorker & The Guardian and dense word style/play.
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.
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.
...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?
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.
One of the most important non-fiction books in your life. Whether you are self development junkie or not you have to read it/listen to it. The earlier in your life the better. Not sure why I was not introduced to it earlier in school...
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!
This is one of those classic books that might have a life-changing effect on you. As a motivational material, it doesn't rely on fancy and marketing-based techniques that might seem artificial. Dale Carnegie mostly uses a basic ideology to help the reader, mostly based on his own experience and on successful people's life stories. Perhaps it is due to this level of authenticity that makes these Carnegie books essential. They might have been followed by a whole genre of self-help books with questionable use, but when Carnegie almost single-handedly created the genre, he had to rely on advise that really influenced people. It was actually surprising to discover, how many successful friend of mine admitted to have a strong influence from Carnegie's books. Please, for your own sake, read them both!
The book is great. It is as current as any book written just yesterday, even though it is more than 60 years old.
I highly recommend it.
"The foundation of modern leadership and influence"
I read many other books about leadership and influence that were written after this book, and I was amazed to find out that many of the modern ideas on leadership actually came from this book. this was the result of the intensive research that Dale Carnegie and his team have done.
This is a book that will help anyone. The key for me was to sit down and listen. Oft times I do other things and listen and I lose some of the best part of the message.
Thank-you Audible for a wonderful seamless listening experience each and every time.
good perspective and everyone needs to give this a listen. It helps expand ones way of thinking
"Cannot believe this book is so popular"
Not Dale Carnegie-
All the anecdotal rubbish that are clearly exaggerated or poorly made up.
"Should be taught in schools"
The world would be a better place if Dale Carnegie's 30 principles were taught in schools all around the world.
My only comment is the principles are 1 - 30 and the audio book resets the principle numbers for each section which makes learning the principles very confusing.
The principles should be numbered as such:
Enhance Relationships 1 - 9
Gain Cooperation 10 - 21
Demonstrate Leadership 22 - 30
Instead the audio book numbers them as:
Enhance Relationships 1 - 9
Gain Cooperation 1 - 11
Demonstrate Leadership 1 - 9
I would recommend updating the audio book and numbering the principles 1 - 30.
"Deal with people good subject"
All the stories from the students that applied these principles
I do not know another book with this subject
He has clear english, my mother thong is spanish and can clearly undertand all what he is saying.
A drop of honey catches more flies than a gallon of gold.
I read this book I think 20 years ago when my father suggested to me, even today is still interesting and all the principles taught are really worth. I would take all this as my guide when dealing with people.
"Just Keeps it Simple"
I have not read the print version.
It was explained in simple terms and used examples we are faced with in all our everyday life.
his is the first one and it was excellent.
Life can be Exciting when you know how.
"Best Book Ever"
This book should be studied by every civilized person alive because it teaches siple techniques everyone can use to treat people better and grow as a human being
Listen to over and over
This book is just excelent. If you try the methods and begin to act by the rules and principles Dale gives, You'll nstantly feel the difference. For me, it was lifechanging, because I dont just act like an other man, I feel I am changing.
