  1. Picked this up after hearing a positive review from a friend to see if this book has any insight I could use in my social media interactions While I agree with and appreciate the principles in this book, it is full of stories and examples that drive home WHY certain tactics work or don t work, but it lacks practical advice on HOW to implement most of the strategies It s like look at all this research and these people who prove that X is the right thing to do Now go do it when in many cases it is [...]

  3. The original Carnegie classic How to to Win Friends and Influence People is a 10 out of 10 of classic books How to Stop Worrying and Start Living was a pick me up I read when I was 23, and influenced me greatly.So why the low score here Well, the big thing that is missing is the Carnegie voice The stories here are relevant to our era rival directors at a fortune 100 company, using the King s Speech as a movie to reference overcoming strugglebut it doesn t ring as authentic or inspriing as Carne [...]

  6. Most of this is common sense, but that s not to say that everyone practices common sense especially in the digital age so it definitely has its use I love that all the points made in the original book still apply today, because at the end of the day it s about people not the form of communication I haven t read the original, but from what I understand this version isn t really any different other than the examples being set on social media and email While most people could still read the origina [...]

  7. Theres some minority of good data with mostly filler words to surround them I guess the original book is much better, the one without the digital age.

  8. After reading Carnegie s original, I was hoping to see a considerable update in this book digital age applications Maybe because it s already 6 years old and we ve moved so beyond even 2011 technology, it didn t have the level of how to I was expecting.Like the original, a whole lot of old boys club references and not enough modern era anecdotes for my liking.

  13. I ve never yet read the original, having had a cynical view of what I perceived to be subtle American manipulation do these tricks for results My public library had only this updated version however, and I am glad I read it The approach is positive, the tone genuine and grounded in the wisdom literature I have taken extensive notes which I need to apply in lots of human interaction, not just digtally Here s one gem always remember that what motivates you to win friends is rarely what motivates o [...]

  14. This book was pleasant enough and had a few common helpful hints However, what really got it a 1 star review was towards the end when the author tells the story of women in the workforce after WWII These women had stepped up and had responsible jobs that they had performed well in, but were set aside for the returning soldiers The one example the author gave was in restaurants, where women who had been cooks were demoted to the lower paying positions of waitresses There was quite a bit of acrimo [...]

  16. It s easy to get social media wrong When you re sitting behind you re keyboard, you can forget that you re writing something that will be read by a real person and not a machine.To get social media right requires the same relating skills that you need when dealing with people face to face This modern era version of the classic book on connecting to people teaches the core principles of engaging with anyone, how to make a lasting impression, how to gain and keep trust, and how to inspire change.T [...]

  17. The original book published in 1936 held many truths that appeared evident but were rarely consciously noticed or followed This book continues in to provide many useful ideas and advice What this book arguably lacks in the folksy wisdom and examples of the original book and its limited focus on social media and communication is balanced by the book not limiting itself to purely digital communication and examples and demonstrating that the points transcend the digital age.The points made in this [...]

  18. With the speed and instant gratification of technology, there are times that the finer points of communication and connection are lost This book offered many reminders about what it takes to win friends and influence people but mostly about how to maintain those relationships during the digital age It comes down to the golden rule treat others as you want to be treated.

  19. I was a teenager when my father recommended Mr Carnegie s original book to me, and at 48 I finally got around to reading this version I m glad that I did, as it was well worth the time I would recommend this book to absolutely anyone who deals with other humans in any capacity at all And yes, I ll be suggesting it to my own daughter right away.

  20. This book was recommended to me by my publicist Great refresher on what s important when you re working with others Also some good advice when dealing with social media Giving it to my teenage daughter to help promote interpersonal skills

  21. Great book with many ideas to put into play I wish all entrepreneurs and business owners would take the time to read this They d have a much productive workforce if they could only apply a few of these techniques I know for myself, I will most definitely be listening to it again.

  22. To me, this was a feeble attempt to modernize an old classic, by throwing in a few references to twitter and other social media I had to read it for work and it was a job just to get through it.

  23. I listened to the audio version It was well done and had lots of great points that would be helpful to people struggling Favourite parts You can make friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get people interested in you.The two highest levels of influence are achieved when 1 person follows because of your influence and 2 person follows you because of who you are.Face to face WAS the expectation now it is the exception Always begin and [...]

  24. I remember first hearing about this book and wondering who the target audience was Perhaps sociopaths Psychopaths Maybe those who wish to scheme and achieve things through the usage of people Instead, when I picked it up and read it, I realised that this book would be far important to me than most books I ve read.Before I dive in, I just want to say that most of this book is fairly obvious and based on common sense At least in my opinion So when I read this book, it felt like affirmations and [...]
