    Anybody read this book?

    My called me up today, and told me that I should read it,

    I guess it took him from $22,000 a year to $60,000 a year with his MLM business?!

    Just curious if anybody's read it, and has it changed your life at all?

    It's a great book. Probably one of my top 10 books of all time (along with Think and Grow Rich).

    It teaches you how to handle people, make people like you, and how to "win people to your way of thinking" - without being shady.

    It's an awesome book. Def. worth buying.

    I have read it.

    But the thing is I don't care about friends nor other people.

    How to win friends is like the white hat of people skills. Basic common shit on how to make people like you.

    If you want the black hat of people skills...read NLP books. That shit is awesome.

    I actually just started this book a couple of days ago, and I must say, I can really see how the basic principles described in the book, if actively applied, could really benefit both your personal life and your business. So, yeah, I'm enjoying it so far :)

    I really enjoyed the recent release of the movie "How To Lose Friends and Alienate People", it was funny.

    If you are looking for some good reads that are incredibly helpful, try these:
    -Why You're Dumb Sick and Broke, By Randy Gage
    -Spiritual Selling, By Joe Nunziata
    -Million Dollar Habits, By Brian Tracy
    -The Trick To Money Is Having Some, By Stuart Wilde

    I would definitely read it; its a classic. Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich changed my life- it gives you a sense of possibility that most people never have going through their everyday life. But yes I would read How to Win Friends by Carnegie; it is the best book on basic skills to get people to like you, which in turn is often the key to making sales, brokering deals, etc.

    I really good book is The art of the deal, Donald Trump.

    How to Win Friends & Influence People is the best book I've ever read it in my entire life, even better than Rich Dad, poor dad.

    In my opinion you should get audio book. it speed up the process a lot.

    >In my opinion you should get audio book.

    I've heard good things about the audiobook although the person I talked to seemed to miss a few things. That may be specific to him. Or it may not be a bad idea to first audiobook, and then read the book as audiobooks sometimes excerpt the material. I'm in agreement that its one of the best books out there.

    I would agree with the others that it is a great book and, although it was quite ground-breaking in its time, it's still very relevant today.
