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 for some situations

I have read other people skills books and found this one to be the most authentic. I do not want to be "fake" when dealing with people and this book does not teach you to be a flattering liar like some other books I have read. It was what I was looking for to improve my people skills.

It really works

I'm being transformed from a socially awkward, timid and defensive person, to someone that seems collected and confident. If you're having troubles in life and simply can't figure out what you're doing wrong, this is a fantastic place to start. Good luck on your journey!

Practical. Real. On target

Dale Carnegie's advice has remained constant and applicable across the years for a reason. It's simple and his techniques make perfect sense. If you're anything like me, you'll be kicking yourself when you see

how you could have handled situations differently

Dale Carnegie understood something deeper - he understood what matters and what doesn’t. He understood an underlying truth about humanity, despite our many differences. This book requires its student to consider a different approach to life and toward people than our default permit and it makes no apologies; minces no words.

Excellent narration, Calming voice

The stories made me smile, the lessons made me consider, and the structure made me delighted to continue. Buy this book if you're interested in understanding how to accomplish your goals. If you're more interested in being right, it may not be for you.

Confidence Builder

This is a great, classic that is really just expounding upon the golden rule. It is a great tool to make sure that you're acting in a moral way that will not only help you win friends but also build character and sleep well at night. The book follows the typical claim - example - explanation format and it works incredibly well in this context.

A game changer

This book changed the way I interact with other people. It helped me understand that each person is viewing and hearing me through their own life experiences and that I in turn am hearing them through the filter of my life history. It helped me improve the quality of every relationship I have and to be more successful at work.

an absolute essential book

Awesome book! If your job doesn't involve dealing with people your personal life most definitely does. This book lays out principles and tactics that will help any person succeed in both. It's funny how long ago this book was written yet the fundamental truths of human interactions haven't changed for thousands of years.
