I absolutely loved this. So relevant and useful.55
I first read this book over 25 years ago after taking a Dale Carnegie course on public speaking. Like many others have said before me, that course changed my life. I switched careers later in my life and stopped thinking about Dale Carnegie - I was out of the fast-paced business world. However, now in a leadership role, I was searching for strategies to motivate my employees. I decided to turn to an old friend for advice - I read this book again, after all these years. It did not disappoint!55
I love this book, it’s fantastic. However, in this version there are TONS of missing words, spelling errors and improper grammar. Normally, it wouldn’t be a big deal. But since it’s about people skills, let’s see how much damage can be done with an example. There is an enormous difference between: A. Let’s eat, grandma. B. Let’s eat grandma. Great book. Read carefully.35
The lessons in this book are universal. No matter who you are or your circumstances, I believe this book contains great life lessons that you will be able to glean. I’m working to implement many of the principles of this book in my own life.55
This book has many tips to develop the person who desires to become a better “people person” and leader. The stories which are shared give the reader a sense of how to apply each principle. Personally, I am looking forward to practicing the material learned from this book and will benefit greatly from this read.55
This is a good book to read for anyone who wants to better deal with people. Some of the things outlined in the book I figured out on my own in time but it would have been helpful to read this book when I was younger and avoid making mistakes along the way.55
An excellent and very relevant book for leadership.55
A little old school but information that will benefit you for a life time55
I’ve used most of these principles to see how far it gets me in my day to day human relations. Its pretty genius55
This is a hand out to be studied and reviews and looked bat into when needed ; beautiful .55
