About the Author

Dale Carnegie passed away in 1955 but his voice lives on. Since the 1936 publication of his first book, How to Win Friends and Influence People, he has touched millions of readers.

More About the Author

Dale Breckenridge Carnegie (originally Carnagey until 1922 and possibly somewhat later) (November 24, 1888 ??? November 1, 1955) was an American writer and lecturer and the developer of famous courses in self-improvement, salesmanship, corporate training, public speaking and interpersonal skills. Born in poverty on a farm in Missouri, he was the author of How to Win Friends and Influence People, first published in 1936, a massive bestseller that remains popular today. He also wrote a biography of Abraham Lincoln, titled Lincoln the Unknown, as well as several other books.

Carnegie was an early proponent of what is now called responsibility assumption, although this only appears minutely in his written work.[citation needed] One of the core ideas in his books is that it is possible to change other people's behavior by changing one's reaction to them.

Customer Reviews

Easy read and I felt it was very up to date using examples to demonstrate the points referred to in the book.

This next generation book of Dale Carnegie is only getting better and I can't wait to apply his new principles in the digital age.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to have better personal and professional relationships.

Do you like awful jargon? Bad writing? Meaningless "improvements"? Do you really want to buy a book with gobbledygook sentences like "Today's biggest enemy of lasting influence is the sector of both personal and corporate musing that concerns itself with the art of creating impressions without consulting the science of need ascertainment"?

Frankly, this unfortunate "revision and updating" of the Carnegie book is a big step backward---a step you can avoid making by buying the original book, which is actually very readable. Whereas this "new" version is so full of mind-numbing jargon you'll want to pull your hair out.

Conclusion: Either this book is a tranparent ploy to make money, regardless of the quality of the work, or the book's owners employed the wrong people to "revise and update" it. Not sure which it is. But the effort did go awry.

Do not buy this book. It borders on false advertising. I very much admire Dale Carnegie's original book, and looked forward to new ideas of incorporating social media. Very little. Most examples are still vignettes prior to social media (eg, Calvin Coolidge, Teddy Roosevelt, etc.). Stick with the original, until they <<really>> provide a book outlining old principles with new examples

Let me first say I have a master's degree (working on my doctorate) and work in the in the complex legal market.

I also read and/or listen the original "How to Win Friends and Influence People" at least once every couple years and firmly believe in it. It is good, solid advice. I believe the concept of this book was a great idea. That is where my praise stops.

This version on the "Digital Age" however is AWEFUL. There are soooooo many metaphors, analogies, and overly forced advanced English word choices that this book is unreadable. You literally have to "digest" every paragraph on the meaning of the language alone. It made this a painful read. I wonder if the authors were sitting around trying to make themselves sound smart or see how complex they can make this book. If Dale Carnegie were around today, he would be scratching his head in disgust. After all the original concept of this book was for the reader to function in any scenario, not to insult his/her intelligence. The original book was written for the common person which is why the it was such a success.

Take my advice skip this version and read the original instead.

Format: Paperback
I have the original How To Win Friends And Influence People in paperback and on my Kindle. Seems to be a pretty solid book that makes many valid points.

When I found this new version of the book, I thought to myself "This book probly shows how to apply these same techniques in emails, facebook, etc.".

I'm about 1/4 through the book, and it's almost nauseating. I hoped that the bad reviews on this book were just misunderstandings or people being mean, but they aren't. The writing in this book is absolutely terrible.

In the original book, an idea is presented, and then several stories are told in order to demonstrate that point. This book doesn't do that. In fact, it makes no sense at all. It just goes on and on and on, page after page of babble.

My recommendation is this: Stick with the original book and learn to apply those techniques to the digital world on your own.

If you like gibberish like this:

"Today's biggest enemy of lasting influence is the sector of both personal and corporate musing that concerns itself with the art of creating impressions without consulting the science of need ascertainment."

Then by all means, buy this book. Else, buy an older edition, written in English.

Couldn't wait for the new book to be released since I have been a fan of all of the Dale Carnegie Books. The original book had a huge impact on my life and contributed greatly to my success. The new book is a good mixture of new and old stories that support the timeless Dale Carnegie Principles. The world has changed greatly but the principles still work. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to have better personal and professional relationships.

Format: Hardcover
All the ingredients--intelligence, life savvy, common sense--that made the original a success are here. The book is packed with practical ways for strengthening your communication skills, both introducing new ideas and reminding us why some age-old practices work so well. If you spend a lot of your day surrounded by people (or want to), you'll only need to spend 3 or 4 days to work your way through this easy-read for a lot of take away value.

If this is your first Carnegie title, you might want to try this one over the original as it is updated to be more relevant to today's information and technology-driven society. But if you've already read the first version, the downsides are that it introduces less new information than you might expect and some of the vocabulary might seem a bit quirky and out of touch to a younger reader used to interacting on social networks.

But even though Carnegie's sense of humor is a bit quirky, his voice is a credible one and an intelligent reader will find a lot of value for the price if they take the time to understand his vantage point.
