Like many graduates out there, I am currently job hunting. This requires a lot of self introspection, as you start to wonder why the nice HR people won't hire you. One way of helping yourself out is by reading this book. (I'm also presuming you'll have lots of spare time as an unemployed bum). The great thing about this book, though, is that you don't really need a lot of time. The chapters are small, and the main points are summarised in bold. This means you can pick it up whenever you want, and it isn't a book you need to read in the right order. Dale Carnegie makes an effort of reiterating the key points, so it really sticks in your head. He recommends that ... Read the complete review

One of the fundamental essentials in life is being able to get along with other people. This requirement begins at school and continues as an adult when you suddenly discover that 'grown ups' aren't necessarily so grown up after all and unfortunately pettiness and being awkward doesn't miraculously evaporate at the age of 18. After starting a new job that involved dealing with some 'challenging' personalities I desperately wished I'd studied for a psychology degree. Since I hadn't, and if I'm entirely honest I'd never been much of a fan of soft 'touchy-feely' stuff, I decided I'd try and find a straightforward book which offered some guidance in generally ...

I'd been recommended this book by my Dad, not necessarily because I needed to put into practice what this book preaches, but because it's one of those books that you will one day, rely on to help you through a sticky patch. The book is broken down into the different aspects of relationships with people, firstly focusing on the 'fundamental techniques in handling people', then, 'six ways to make people like you' and also,'how to win people you your way of thinking' and finally, 'be a leader: how to change people without giving offense or arousing resentment'. Although these may sound complicated, by reading the book you begin to realise that there are certain ... Read the complete review

I came at this book with some trepidation, as reading any self-help book has always been something I've avoided like the bubonic plague. Like many people I take the attitude "we are what we are, and aint nothing gonna change it." But, having read this book a lot of things Mr Carnegie suggests do resonate with me. I finished this book last week, and as there is no better proof of the pudding than in the eating, I determined to handle my next 'life situation' as I imaged Dale himself would have. My situation happened to be a work colleague annoyed that I had chosen not to partake in a round of Sambuca shots at the bar, and demanding his money back that ... Read the complete review

Now who would have put money on me doing a review about this book? Go on, would you? How to win friends and influence people was the brainchild of Dale Carnegie, a chap back in the early 1900ís who developed a cunning plan. Let me tell you a bit about him. Born in 1888, Dale pursued a career in teaching before taking a job as a salesman for armour and Co. It was to supplement his income whilst a student that he embarked on what was to become the most attended training course in history, that of which the Dale Carnegie training company was founded on and still carries on to the day. His idea was to help people overcome a ... Read the complete review
