#17 How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie

October 12, 2009

I’ve been hearing about How to Win Friends and Influence People for years. I finally listened to the book last week.
There is nothing really magical about the information in HTWFAIP. It’s all common sense advice followed up by anecdotes that are mildly entertaining. To be honest, there is a very small amount of information in the book – most of it is anecdotes used to substantiate the maxims.
Read it just because it’s one of those books you should read. I’m glad I read it, but just barely.

I’d agree that this has a lot of anecdotes. However, I would argue that the book is more of a process, and change doesn’t always happen fast.

I wrote a review of the book that might give a different perspective.
