Overview

An adaptation of Dale Carnegie’s timeless prescriptions for the digital age.

Dale Carnegie’s time-tested advice has carried millions upon millions of readers for more than seventy-five years up the ladder of success in their business and personal lives. Now the first and best book of its kind has been rebooted to tame the complexities of modern times and will teach you how to communicate with diplomacy and tact, capitalize on a solid network, make people like you, project your message widely and clearly, be a more effective leader, increase your ability to get things done, and optimize the power of digital tools.

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.” To demonstrate the lasting relevancy of his tools, Dale Carnegie&Associates, Inc., has reimagined his prescriptions and his advice for our 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

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.

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! :)

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 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.
