Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Despite the wealth of technical advances in the 1990s workplace, managing, motivating, and communicating remains a challenge. The Leader in You adapts the simple, time-tested management theories of Dale Carnegie to this high-tech environment with refreshing results. Read in an engaging but direct tone, the tape's pace is varied with excerpts from recent management studies and anecdotes from contemporary business leaders. It's a sound introduction to leadership skills for anyone working in the public, private, or nonprofit sector. (Running time: 1.5 hours, one cassette) --Sharon Griggins --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly

Essentially an updating of Dale Carnegie's enormously successful books of the 1930s and '40s ( How to Win Friends and Influence People has thus far sold 30 million copies), this book adds little new material. The major difference is that this effort is more unabashedly focused on influencing people in order to make money, which is logical since the book is aimed at business people. Carnegie's rules are reiterated: be euphoric if you can and, if you can't, at least don't be negative; respect others and try to make them feel praiseworthy and deserving of recognition; listening is just as important as talking, perhaps more so. Business people are advised that they can be leaders if they realize that the pyramidal structure of the corporation is being replaced by teamwork; and if they set goals and keep them constantly in mind, business people have a good chance of realizing their objectives. Thus, while Levine, CEO of Dale Carnegie, and Crom, a vice-president of the firm, offer little that's original, one senses that sales will be excellent.

Having twice completed the original "How to Win Friends and Influence People", I found 75% of this is a rehash. The other 25% was mostly modern anecdotes that support the original author's theories. I found little original material.

The Leader in You just takes the issues pointed out at How to Win Friends and Influence People and gives more updated examples related to the business world.
I really doens't add much value if you have read How to Win Friends... which, by the way, is much more fun and is better written.

This is a re-write of Dale Carnegie's "How to Win Friends and Influence People" by Stuart Levin, the CEO of Dale Carnegie and Associates, Inc. Unfortunately, the new book is an empty shell of the original -- it's already dated, although it was published in 1993, while the original, first published in the 1930's, is as fresh and as relevant as it was the day it was first printed. Recommend skipping this lesser imitation and sticking with the original.

This book is an excellent training tool for the new supervisor. Far too many people are placed in a supervisory position with a five minute ceremony called "the promotion", yet they are never taught HOW to supervise people. If you want to teach the people responsible for motivating others on how to motivate, how to treat their staff and colleagues, and how to get along in today's business world, this is a great book.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
"The Leader in You" is one of the valuable books, written by Dale Carnegie, but I believe that "How to win Friends and Influence people" is much more important to read, because it leads the reader to find the leader in him, in different social relations, and not only on the business terms. "The Leader in You", in my opinion, is considered a review of "How to Win Friends and Influence People". So if you are interested in reading "The Leader in You", don't buy it, but buy "How to Win Friends and Influence People", as it will attract your attention more. In the "Leader in You" you get introduced to the best ways that you should use in order to be a successful leader.

After reading the two books, I believe that they carry on the same themes, which are to be nice, moderate, and to praise people in order to get what you want. Through these ways and through many other ways, Dale Carnegie gets the reader to deal with people in a very successful way, so that they can make other people want what they (the leaders) want, and by that way they can be successful leaders, as they will always get what they want and they will always have people helping them, not because they fear them but because they love dealing with them, with their leaders. It is a book that helps any person to be a leader, not through power and evil means but by nice and precise attitudes towards others.

When I first read that book, I got the impression that it is contradicting the Machiavellian way of thinking. Machiavelli, in "The Prince" argues that a successful leader should always try to be feared and loved by people, and if the leader failed to be loved and feared, then he would better focus on one character, which is to be feared.

This book is an awe inspiring book describing ways to get people to like you, trust you, invest in you and have faith in you and your judgement. I've never read a book that actually makes you want to meet others, listen to other and motivate others. I'mm not actually a director of a business nor a salesman, so I presumed I wouldn't benefit from this book. I was wrong, in that this book is designed for all people in all walks of life, to help improve your communication skills from human to human. A great great book. Free from jargon, with great, thought provoking examples

This little book is recommended reading in the company I currently work for and unlike some of the other recommendations, Fish and Moving My Cheese for instance, this has some value.

It is, in essence, an updated version of How to Win Friends and Influence People, adapted for the present day and readers who have read the former work will gain little from this except some familiarity with more contemporary case studies.

What struck me as I was going over it was how central the basic messages are to most of the useful management books on the market today. Certainly among the more academic books you will findmore material which is inherently useful to higher level managers and professionals but in the context of middle and line management, the central tenents hold true. To name just two, good listening skills, and trying to see things from the perspectives of others are golden rules from which none of use should deviate.

Indeed, one is almost tempted to say that these are the sort of things that should be taught in schools as components of civics classes except that I am sure many others would agree, schools should concentrate on getting basic skills right before they release students into the world of work.

The leader in you is a useful book to read. It is an easy read and one that shoul not take too long to work through and the simple down to earth homily approach works well with most people.

While not the be all and end all of all management books, this slim little volume contains some simple lessons that all managers would do well to digest and apply in all their dealings with other people and I can think of a few who need to rediscover this book right now.
