Overview


AN UP-TO-THE -MINUTE ADAPTATI ON OF DALE CARNEGIE ’S TI MELE SS PRESCRIPTI ONS FOR THE DIGITAL AGE

DALE CARNEGIE’s commonsense approach to communicating has endured for a century, touching millions and millions of readers. The only diploma that hangs in Warren Buffett’s office is his certificate from Dale Carnegie Training. Lee Iacocca credits Carnegie for giving him the courage to speak in public. Dilbert creator Scott Adams called Carnegie’s teachings “life-changing.”

In today’s world, where more and more of our communication takes place across wires and screens, Carnegie’s lessons have not only lasted but become all the more critical. Though he never could have predicted technology’s trajectory, Carnegie proves a wise and helpful teacher in this digital landscape. To demonstrate the many ways his lessons remain relevant, Dale Carnegie & Associates, Inc., has reimagined his prescriptions and his advice for this difficult digital age. We may communicate today with different tools and with greater speed, but Carnegie’s advice on how to communicate, lead, and work efficiently remains priceless across the ages.

Editorial Reviews

Making yourself visible on the horizon of what seems like an endless digital sea sounds hopeless, but learning to personalize yourself is easier than it seems. Dale Carnegie's How to Win Friends & Influence People has been casting its empowering spell since 1936, bringing self-confidence to tens of millions of readers. This edition not only celebrates the 75th anniversary of that resilient bestseller; it also reshapes Carnegie's concept within the context of this age of social networking. An old chestnut that proves relevant to a new age.

Library Journal
Although it's been 75 years since Carnegie's landmark How To Win Friends and Influence People was published, his approach to communication is still relevant today. According to the Dale Carnegie & Associates organization, the hyperfrequency and speed of interactions make it crucially important to get one's message right the first time. Readers are advised to consider the listener before speaking and to avoid criticism, condemnation, and complaint. Integrity is essential, and it's important for one to admit wrong-doing or wrong speaking. This updated book offers easy-to-employ strategies for lasting, productive progress in conversations as well as collaborations in business or personal life. A winner for individuals and libraries alike. [See Prepub Alert, 4/25/11.]

This book discusses qualities that people desire in a successful leader. It primarily focuses developing the proper social skills needed in the workplace and in everyday correspondence. The change in title from the original book reflects the "modernized" examples that illustrate Carnegie's original ideas. The rest of the content is, as far as I can tell, unchanged. I found it especially useful to learn how little the "rules" of communication has changed when we communicate through email, Twitter, Facebook or any other form of instant communication. A major focus of the content is encouraging people to think about the unspoken and implied messages they send to others—something that is critical in a world where information may be instantly shared. It centers on how to interact with and make acquaintances, make a lasting impression on those you already associate with, help them to learn how to trust you, and influence them (as well as yourself) to change for the better. Reading this book will certainly make you think twice before you click "Send" in an email. Anyone interested in maintaining friendships will enjoy this book. Its influence will greatly enhance everyday communication on any level, both formally as well as electronically.

(What should be) common sense lessons that are too often overlooked in today's society.

I liked this book but found some of the information to be very obvious. I think this book is more of a beginner's guide to management.

This book provides inspiring insight in how to connect and relate with others no matter what medium we are using. It's a wonderful blend of current examples from the vast communications outlets of today and Mr. Carnegie's inspiring examples from the origninal How to Win Friends and Influence People. I love this book...and you will too! :)

This is an excellent, and practical guide to living successfully in the Digital Age we are now living in. The original How To Win Friends had a profound impact on my career. This new version will also have a profound impact on how I live today.

It is amazing how Dale Carnegie's books and principles are relevant for over 100 years with real impact on the average person's life. Not many books are in that same category.
