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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Format: Audio CD
I bought these CDs thinking that they were an audio edition of the book How to Win Friends and Influence People, unfortunately it is not. The current owners of the Dale Carnegie brand have capitalised on his name and highly successful book to produce a CD that is at best superficial and lacking in substance. Chapter after chapter of woffle and superficialities. The back of the case explains that the CDs are aimed to :
- find nuance and value in online mediums
- build and capitalise on a solid network
- project your message widely and clearly
- convey mastery of the Web 2.0
- optimise the power of digital tools.

I played the CDs in my car and quickly skipped forward hoping to find a chapter that contained any real substance, unfortunately I did not find one. When I got home I took great pleasure in filing the CDs under G.

Format: Paperback
This is an acceptable update from the "Associates" at Dale Carnegie and Associates. It's interesting to see how they have updated the basic structure of the original text to talk about our online identity and relationships. That said, I don't think this edition has any important input that a reasonable adult couldn't gather from the "dated" original text. This work attempts to correct/update the archaic nature of Carnegie's original work, but I would like to point out that many approach Carnegie seeking "old" or "classic" American values, and are not necessarily bothered by the dated nature of the original work. The update feels forced.
