There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I found that there was some repetition. His chapters on criticism especially. He starts with it and then revisits it a number of times, calling it nagging sometimes, and showing us the behaviours that cause it. If I was to rewrite the book I'd group most of them in to one longer chapter instead of having them scattered throughout the book.
There was also some stuff that was dated in the book. Particularly in his section on having a good marriage. How he refers to what men and women want seems funny looked at through the lens of today, but the core principles are stellar. Put effort in to your marriage, as much effort as you do to your work.
This was a great read that has lots to offer.

In the version i read, Carnegie also gives some lessons on marriage. I didn't care too much about that section, as the illustrations are so dated that it takes away from the principles behind them.
If you haven't read it, correct that. It's worth the time.
I am not the kindest person out there, and this book taught me how to take others feelings into account and bring them up more so than bring them down. I would recommend this book if anyone has problems making friends or is trying to become a kinder person in general!
This isn’t a book about how to take advantage of people but it’s a book about how to understand people to work with them better.
