Product description

Amazon Review

This grandfather of all people-skills books was first published in 1937. It was an overnight hit, eventually selling 15 million copies. How to Win Friends and Influence People is just as useful today as it was when it was first published, because Dale Carnegie had an understanding of human nature that will never be outdated. Financial success, Carnegie believed, is due 15 percent to professional knowledge and 85 percent to "the ability to express ideas, to assume leadership and to arouse enthusiasm among people." He teaches these skills through underlying principles of dealing with people so that they feel important and appreciated. He also emphasises fundamental techniques for handling people without making them feel manipulated. Carnegie says you can make someone want to do what you want them to by seeing the situation from the other person's point of view and "arousing in the other person an eager want." You learn how to make people like you, win people over to your way of thinking, and change people without causing offence or arousing resentment. For instance: "Let the other person feel that the idea is his or hers" and "talk about your own mistakes before criticising the other person." Carnegie illustrates his points with anecdotes of historical figures, leaders of the business world and everyday folks. --Joan Price --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Review

"it changed my life" (Warren Buffet)

"The most successful self-help book of all time... Carnegie has never seemed more relevant" (The Times)

"It's helped me immeasurably in life. I think everyone should read it" (Jenny Colgan, Independent on Sunday)

"a no-nonsense guide to being a better person...an easy-to-read, practical guide" (Spirit and Destiny)

Very good book for people who actually want to understand how to behave to gain success. Some of the things they reccomend might be a bit obvious but they make you understand what is the mechanism - why it works. Worth buying & easy read. The book I have purchased was super cheap because it was a supposed to be used version, but it actually came new, which was a great surprise.

A real classic. A very simple formula; a principle followed by a story to back it up. Can get a bit repetitive at times. "Take the case of Robert L Tomlinson from Ohio.." Also uses a lot of examples from American presidents who ruled in the first half of e 20th century and great American industrialists who were born over 100 years ago. These stories nowadays can seem dated, but still an excellent book

I love this book!

Probably one of the most practical, helpful and insightful books I've ever read. A classic that still stands strong long after it was initially written back in the 1930's.

I already have my copy of this book. I bought this one for a friend as a gift and every chance I get, I always recommend this book to people. It is a really interesting read and was once recommended to me by a successful business man. You won't be disappointed with this investment.

Another fantastic book for the bookcase. Like a good film, this book gives me something new to think about every time I pick it up. At worst, this book will make you ask yourself which of the 30 Principles you already do naturally, and establish which ones you don't. It is not, as the title suggests to some, a book on how to influence people maliciously. Think of it as a rule book for life and if you follow only 25% of it, you'll probably be forever referred to by other as "a good bloke or lady". Naturally, people want to do business with good people.

Bought for my son who's an excellent scientist but needs to be a trifle more outgoing.

Cured my anxiety, won a lot of friends, and gave me more confidence than I've ever had in my life.

I can't recommend this book enough. I wouldn't be where I am without it. Everything you learn from it so simple yet so effective. If I knew how much it would change my life, I would have happily bought this for £100+.
