Useful.

It was very helpful for me and i was able to identify areas where I was sabotaging myself by not considering the other person's views. I will listen it again and again until i can feel comfortable about my relationships

Love it..!!

If you are like me and are way too concerned about how people think about you, this book will ensure you make real friends - not the kind that secretly hate you behind your back. The tips he gives are so good that, if applied correctly, will have you making friends left and right.

MUST BE LISTEN!

It amplifies the advice your mom told you with engaging stories that illustrate each concept. Treat others as you would like to be treated and that will go along way toward achieving everything you want as well!

FABULOUS!

I love this new twist on the great advice given in this book. In spite of the advances in technology and perhaps because of advances in technology, this book is a treasure.

Life changing.

This book covers a wide range of topics such as how to motivate people, how to win them to your way of thinking, but also covers small and often overlooked things such as the importance of remembering someone's name

Superb!

It's actually a set of straightforward, reasonable principles about how to work more effectively with the people around you, whether that be colleagues, friends or even members of one's families.

Good Self-Help book

It contains a lot of informative and helpful tips about how to deal with people, how to apply each principle. I learned how to get the best of an argument, without hurting the other person’s pride and how to call attention to people’s mistakes indirectly.

All the Golden-Nuggets in one place

The key point of this book is that if you want people to like you, you should take interest in them. People love to talk about themselves and love people who let them do just that.This is also great for people who would never take the time to read the full book.

Most Informative summary

I have to admit that people skills were never my strong point. While I had no problem making friends, my problem was handling problem people and taking a leadership role.I listen the audiobook "How to Win Friends and Influence People" many times. It made all the difference in human relations and I made the transition to a people person to the point where I can handle anybody and have developed strong leadership skills.
