    By Finally $
    Typos! Read one line with typos and immediately turned me off and question the quality of a book I was purchasing. Want my money back.
  • Solid book

    It’s will basically teach you how to be nice to people, and give examples of certain principles. If you struggle with people listening to you or liking you, this is a good book. If not, you probably know a majority of the principles taught.
  • It works!

    By Brian Vassell
    I’ve used these principles to varying degrees of success. Worth the money I spent on it.
  • Decent but overrated

    By DrumShredder
    Helpful concepts but some are repetitive or disagree with each other. This book is also based almost entirely on anecdotes or stories - lacking solid data.

    Great content, however this edition had many typos
  • Wonderful book

    By Timmy_Boi
    This book really teaches you a lot of concepts in handling people and resolving conflict. This is an awesome book for those that are not well versed in that area or want to become better at it. The only thing I didn’t like is that there are a lot of grammatical and punctuation errors. I’m not sure if this is from transferring the text from the book to digital text, but it would be nice if it was revised.
  • Ridled with Typos

    By TechnoWhopperWithCheese
    Yes I meant that. :) I’m sad to say that this edition of this book is riddled with typos. I find this to be quite disrespectful to the author who put much effort into this piece. Some of the mistakes are so bad, they render their respective notions incomprehensible. THAT is not cool. I feel there is no excuse for this level of consistent error in the days of digital reading—in theory, you could [run spellcheck and] update the edition instantly after another round of proof reading. We‘re already (and sadly) living in the days of the public beta. Why not update books after their release? And to do this to such an important piece of literature... these mistakes will live as long as this book, which is likely thru the end of human civilization. Sad. Glad I only paid $3, although I expect media of this low grade to be free! Also, can someone please explain how a book published in 193X contains an anecdote about how Stevie Wonder became one of the great pop artists of the seventies? The author died in the 50s!
