How to Have Confidence and Power in Dealing with People Reviews
I have read a few books, dale carnigie, van fleet, and accidentally stumbled on this. I have know idea why more people or search s don't mention this guy, he is outstanding. Easy to read, easy to follow his thought process, no fluff, all meat and potatoes - every sentence has alot of meaning. Don't let the publication date scare you, its the most current up date book on the market. I accidently found this through a amazon recommendation and bought it because it was cheap. I just read, and reread, helping at work alot.
This is based on the book, but not the better version that I got at Audible. The book is excellent and wears well with time. People's nature really doesn't change with time. People are mostly interested in themselves. People want things. The things they want may change, but not the needs they are trying to satisfy.
I love the fact that he considers this book unfinished unless we apply these principles of dealing with people to our own accord by writing it down. He even give us a guided worksheet at the end to write down what improvements need to be made on a weekly basis. It is a timeless book. I love it
The basic principles this book explains are timeless and foundational to working with people. Anyone who has to interact with people will find value in this book. Having the knowledge of how to interact with people is only half the battle. Executing these principles is a challenge in itself.
If you've read Carnegie, then this book will serve as either (i) a stimulating refresher, or (ii) merely a supplement to the archetype. Some good factoids and anecdotes throughout, but also occasional disagreements with Carnegie that were never fleshed out (I understand, given the date of publication, it's a moot point, but one that nevertheless left me wanting more). Overall, a quick read that's worth your time, but I will always be going back to Carnegie's edition in a crisis.
Excellent book. I now have my 13 year old reading it and he thinks it is awesome. His exact words were "This is going to be very useful for me. I didn't think I'd like this but this is good stuff!". lol Def a must read if you are trying to improve any area of your life.
This book, as you read it, will become clear that it was written in a different era. That said the advice, proposals, and overall material are still very relevant.
The material found here still holds true today. Human nature doesn't change much. Gives good insight to the human psyche and practical tips to deal with it.
