review Krishnapriya Nair  |   3 mins read January 21, 2021 | 41 | 306 eye icon

Millions of people have already read and reviewed this book in the past. “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie (1936), is a timeless bestseller and crowns the heart of many over these years.

This is the best possible and beautifully written book that talks about human relations and how to be a great leader and a wonderful human being as well. Dale Carnegie in this excellent tome has provided a step by step process and road map as to what it means to be kind, to be caring, considerate, and compassionate. This book gives examples from life to illustrate its points, so anyone can understand how to apply it.

From a management perspective, “How to Win Friends and Influence People” is a book that reiterates the basic tenets of leadership in a work environment, reminding us on how important it is to be and do good, compliment people, make everyone around you feel good, and empower people. Even though this book was written over 90 years ago, many principles the book teaches can be applied to the workplace, and you can reap the results which are visible, as the principles are still relevant in the present day as much as they were before. This book has been an inspiration and success ladder for many famous and hugely successful business people.

No matter what stage of life you are in or what your profession is, this book really builds a solid foundation for a successful life. 

To give a brief summary, the author starts out with 9 suggestions on how to get the best out of the book. To make it simple and easy to understand, the book is broken into parts, where each principle is explained with interesting examples. As you read through the principles, you may feel these are so simple, but in practice, it becomes much more difficult to stick to. Through each principle, the author tells you the ways to make friends and influence people by giving examples /stories of how it helps, and then further explains the principle. 

Dale Carnegie's principles help you to achieve your optimum potential in this competitive world. “How to Win Friends and Influence People” is the result of a lifetime of work and experience in human psychology and relationships. Thus, it’s a real testimony to the importance of human relationships even in this internet era, where human interactions and relationships are becoming virtual

I have been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found
any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me.
In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a co-worker who had been doing a little research on this. And he in fact ordered me lunch due to the fact that I discovered it for him... lol. So allow me to reword this....Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending time to discuss this issue here on your web page.

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the
video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just
posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme?
Superb work!

I'm impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that's equally
educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head.
The problem is something which not enough
people are speaking intelligently about. I'm very happy I found this during my search for
something regarding this.

May I simply say what a relief to uncover somebody who truly understands what they are discussing on the net.

You certainly understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
More people have to look at this and understand this side of the story.
It's surprising you aren't more popular since you surely have the gift.

Admiring the time and effort you put into your website and detailed information you offer.

It's nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn't
the same outdated rehashed information. Great read! I've bookmarked your site
and I'm including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

This design is incredible! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Great job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
