5.0 out of 5 stars Those that condemn this book!, July 8, 2002
This review is from: How to Win Friends & Influence People (Mass Market Paperback)
I reread this book recently for the first time in many years. I thoroughly enjoyed it and realized why I was floundering in some of my relationships. The biggest lesson I got from the book was quit thinking about yourself and think about the other person. Self absorption is an epidemic.
Now to address the negative reviewers. Anything can be used negatively. If you want to manipulate and hurt others you don't need to use this book. I guess I kept hearing Carnegie stressing over and over again the need for sincerity and if you weren't sincere it would all eventually backfire on you.
We live in a society that has abandoned common courtesy and social skills for "keepin it real", which is just another way of saying I'll do whatever I want and screw you if you don't like it.
I'm in the schools everyday and teachers are verbally attacked and abused constantly. Learning, education and just plain life cannot take place without the skills to facilitate our relationships one with another. I reread portions of this book all the time and it has helped greatly!
