I found this book a tremendous followup to reading Carnegie's How to win friends and influence people. As stated in the other reviews, this great little guide offers the universal principles of communicating with people.
Carnegie's bible differs in that it answers the fundamental question: Why should I improve my skills with people? Why bother? He does this with umpteen stories threaded throughout the book. The reader is left in no doubt as to the value of its contents.
After reading Carnegie, Skill With People is an incredible, compact aide that can be left lying around the house, in the car, in the bathroom, etc. that makes it easy to brush up and revise the pointers that are so valuable.

A mentor of mine share his copy with me years ago and now I give it out to people. It is priceless. I actually spoke on the phone to Giblin a few years ago! He explained these concepts go beyond the test of time and last forever. He also said they are universal to everyone. I agree with him. (Note: Written in mid 1960's...as a reader, move beyond some of the references that were relevant at the time to get the most out of this little gem.)

OK -- so it's only a 33-page read, and for gosh sakes, it's over 29 years old!! How much can be in it? Only everything you'll ever need to mold, manage, and inspire those you work with and those you work for.
Les has managed to take 26 letters of the alphabet and some punctuation to reveal to us the "how-to" of successful people skills that are too often lost, forgotten, and mis-used.
Yeah, it's only 33 pages -- but you'll wear out your copy underlining it. New ideas will spring off the pages of this generation-old masterpiece helping to solve your people challenges.

...like most truths in life, they transcend time. Time may march on, and things may change... but Les's words WILL provide every reader the basic skills needed to deal with what will never change... Read it, use it! buy a copy for a friend.

I've read this book several times in my life and have benefited each time. What's been even more interesting is understanding it's applicability across multiple cultures and regions. My experience is that nearly all of Giblin's guidance applies regardless of the country/culture of origin of who you're speaking with. So, even though different cultures have different protocols for introductions or transacting business, INTERPERSONAL communications will benefit from understanding Giblin's lessons, whether working with Japanese, Arabs, Mexicans, Canadians, New Englanders, or Texans.

I started a business and had no people skills. Through the techniques in this book I learned how to deal with people on a friendly helpful basis. Lots of good tips. It's a fairly short book and it is easy to incorporate the tips into your every day life. As my business grew and I added employees, I gave a copy to each employee when they got hired. It helped my business tremendously and it has helped my personal life. It is a classic.

Bought this for a team of managers who were struggling with their roles. They enjoyed the book and started to implement a few suggestions quickly. So far, reports are that they are putting the strategies to good use.
