Book Review: How to Win Friends & Influence People


win_friends_influence_peopleWhenever I need to correct my five year old son he replies with the following:”I did not know that, why have you not told it to me before?” – This is something that I need to scream out in this book review. This book is written in 1936, and why has it not gotten my attention before now? I rate books by “life changing”, “Useful”, “Well at least I learned a thing or two” or “waste of time” – This old book is absolutely in the “life changing” category, as it is straight out displaying a beneficial way of behaving. What book am I talking about?

How to Win Friends & Influence PeopleBy Dale Carnegie

As a leader I have developed according to autodidactism, maybe that is why I have missed out on this book thru all these years? It has sold more than 15,000,000 copies around the world, Over 8 million people have completed Dale Carnegie Training course. I know feel like a heavy bunch of people suddenly got a head start. My point is this: Have you still not read this book? Order it now!

The book is all action with examples and an in detail descriptions on how to succeed according to Dale’s principles. And if you have not read it yet you should as soon as possible as this book will open you head up and show you how easy it is to get it your way. This is a must for leaders as well as for salespeople out there. Be aware; the principles and ideas in this book are easy to understand, easy to do, but hard to remember when you are in the game. That is why you need to read this book more than once and practice, practice and practice.
