This book contains content blended from two Dale Carnegie books: "How to Win Friends and Influence People" and "How to Stop Worrying and Enjoy Life." I'd already read "How to Win Friends" less than a year ago, so the content was relatively fresh in my mind and it seemed like the majority of this book contains content from that volume. I really enjoy the pieces that were from "How to Stop Worrying" and I'll need to add that book to my list, because I would have liked to have more of it within thi ...more

Maybe if you don't like your job, you should change it! (smile) We all have those days, where we don't like the situation we are in. If we are in the right place as far as our job or circumstances, than maybe we need to look at the bright side of things, create a positive attitude, and go from there.

As most of people do job for living, maximum number of people goes to their offices or workstations to work may be much industrious so that it payback more bucks which may fulfill their amenities and additional needs even though the job is not much interesting. If you ask why they should have to do these dull jobs they may bluntly shoot you these questions: “Who will pay my son’s education fees?” and “Who will pay the loan amount that my bank given to me to construct/buy my own house?” for these ...more

I previously read, though didn't finish, How to Win Friends and Influence People, so I knew I liked Dale Carnegie's casual writing style and very much agreed with his advice. But much of this book is made up of excerpts from How to Win Friends, so it was a bit redundant for me. I also questioned the advice more on this read than on my previous one, which is largely because of the advice of Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office. I suppose some middle path between the books is the right balance. ...more

Only if I had the choice of introducing a mandatory course in our school, college or unis or even at workplace, I would make learning to "live well with People" a mandatory course and Dale Carnnegie , the master trainer. Don't get confused with the silly titles of his books, no book has actually made me understand the human as good as that. It's highly recommended to all yo professional and executives out there who are genuinely interested in relationship management, in and outside the workplace ...more

This is selections from How to Win Friends and Influence People and How to Stop Worrying and Start Living. Basically the condensed versions in order to cash in on Dale Carnegie's popularity and as a quick introduction to some of the concepts. A bit dated in some of the ways things are presented, I'm more used to less verbiage from this sort of book, but otherwise quite readable.

Interesting view of how teaching other people well can reflect well on your work and home life.
Most of the content is from Dale Carnegie's 'How to Stop Worrying and Star Living' and 'How to Win Friends & Influence People'. If you have already read those two, I suggest you to skip this book.

But it's a short book and reading those anecdotes on famous people including Abraham Lincoln, one more time, can only help.

Knjiga nije kompatibilna sa nasim mentalitetom i zivotnim navikama. Postoji dosta dobrih saveta i poucnih primera koje bi trebalo zapamtiti,medjutim,nisu jasni niti upecatljivi na prvo citanje. Svakako preporucujem,jer nismo svi isti.

I've heard wonderful things about Dale Carnegie's perception and storytelling. I was looking forward to start reading his books and "How to enjoy life and your job"was the first on the list. Oh, how disappointed i am! This book is an endleesssssss name dropping list and a check of very obvious pieces of advice. Long story short, this book wasn't worth my time and would not recommend it. Perhaps his other best-sellers are better but i'm a bit skeptical now.

I had heard a lot about Dale Carnegie's book about winning friends and influencing people some 7-8 years ago when I was undergoing depression. I wanted to read him but never got a chance. Finally, I decided to read his book for getting some help in my new job-oriented life. So I picked up "How To Enjoy Your Life and Job". The new cover page of the book is really appealing and gives a sense of positivism even before you have paid for it and it's all yours. :- ) I had very high expectations from

As he states clearly, no new information, just an accumulation of timeless wisdom. Nothing to discover, but a lot to remember.

The book is all about to prepare people both being worker and being boss, in worker side the approach of this books is so religious, the author consider workers as apostle, it says ' don't need to demand more, obey rules and accept it as well and let the system exploit you because we have to sacrifice ourselves to keep system alive, and if we want to be happy we would be thankful, oh my Jesus oh my god thank god and Jesus again. The other side of this book is about being boss or being someone ap ...more

I'm not gonna lie. Much of the material in this book is old-fashioned, pie in the sky and, "good ol' days" cliche. I found myself being cynical a lot, especially in the opening chapters, thinking, "It'd be really great if this still worked, but Dale Carnegie just isn't relevant to the 21st century."

That said, the more I read, the more I think it is still possible to get what you want and need out of your life and career by following Mr. Carnegie's advice. At very least, you'll feel good about y

I started "reading" this via audio book and even so, couldn't get into it.

Here is my summary of the advice given: Pretend you love everything and you'll eventually actually believe it.

It seems so Pollyanna and ridiculous to me. Yes, sure, that's great to look for the positive and to try to enjoy things, but this just doesn't read as practical ways to approach life and work as much as it is encouraging a sort of Prozac mentality of refusing to acknowledge any negative. It seems to focus more on h

One of the best books i've ever read, i think if there'll be a simple improvement for me in daily dealings with people, this book will have a tole in that change.

The other i discovered about this book, that dealing with people and make them feel happy and to give a long lasting impression is easy if you slow down your actions and thinking before doing them, if you do so you'll then feel that conversion made in your life and impressions.

Also i find and based on what i learned and read in this boo

هذا الكتاب يأخذك للمعرفة أين يكمن أخطائك عندما يسرد قصص أخرين يرتكبون أخطاء في حياتهم العملية والأجتماعية تشبه أخطائك ويخبرك الكتاب كيف هم الأخرين تغلبوا على أخطائهم وعيبهم.
الكتاب جداً مثير وغني بتجارب والحكم و الكاتب عمد لأسلوب كيف يخبرنا بأخطائنا بطريقة سرد تجارب أخرين كانوا يخطئون ولكن كيف نجحوا بأن يصححو أخطائهم بنصائح التي يسردها الكتاب .

عن نفسي اشتريت الكتاب منذوا أشهر لأنه أستقوفني عنوان الكتاب ولكن لم أقرأه وتركت الكتاب في رف المكتبة لحوالي ٥ أشهر .
