    Many of these ideas have been re-hashed since the book was written but they so stand the test of time. If you want to truly motivate people this is a good starting point. Some of the examples feel dated now and he is a superfluous when it comes to providing real life example but those being the book’s only faults. I tend to be a very direct leader who can forget not everyone operates that way. This has helped me be more mindful of how to motivate people overall and in a positive manner specifically.

    The content of this book is phenomenal. Dale Carnegie was an amazing man with a keen insight into humanity. As far as books go, this is a must read for everyone. As far as this particular edition, it is riddled with spelling and grammar errors caused by scanning software deficiencies and a lack of any proofreading effort, whatsoever. If you wish to suffer poor English in lieu of a cheap price, this is the version for you. If you prefer to read a book with proper grammar and punctuation, I would recommend paying more in the hopes that the people who are selling it have also read it, and were smart enough to correct the hundreds of errors.

    By Philburtt
    This book is full of examples of how successful people handle human relations. Split up by practical principles, each chapter will challenge your thoughts on human relations and have you thinking of ways you could apply the content tomorrow. I would highly recommend this book. I did not agree with everything in it, but even where I disagreed, the way in which the content was presented made me reevaluate and occasionally even readjust my position on a matter. Overall, this book was very helpful and extraordinarily practical.
