  • Solid book

    By ndheundjroaksjdjeu was
    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!

    This is the second time I’ve read this book. It is a must read for sure one of my favorite books of all time. And I’m sure I’m going to read it for the third time! Dale Carnegie has such savvy advice that works for businesses and employers home everywhere you’ll find your self you can apply as savvy advice. A couple of days ago my wife and I updated our cell phones. The associate that helped us never smiled the whole time she was helping us. I made it a point to remember her name. At the end of the transaction I made sure I said her name during the time we finish the transaction and guess what I got her to smile! It was a smile of pure delight that I remembered her name. Her face lit up like sunshine! And when I was walking out the store she said have a great day and said my name as well. I can go on and on how this really works in many other situations but this narrative may get a little too long. And boy this really works like magic!
  • About the book

    i Love that book
  • Edition is full of typos, waste of money

    By Whitney18181818
    There are egregious typos throughout this edition. This is a scam by this publisher. Spend a little more and get a proper version.
  • Everything you will learn in this book works

    By LilMoist
    I was texting a girl while reading the book and our relationship was amazing at first went out a few times before but slowly our conversations started to become less frequent and eventually it seemed like we didn’t even want to speak to each other. I decided to try out the principles that Dale Carnegie covers and as expected it actually worked out. Our conversations are fun and thriving all by me tweaking myself slightly. Instead of speaking about myself and my personal experiences I listen to her and in turn, she tells me everything. Thank you to Dale Carnegie for an amazing book
