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

From Barnes & Noble

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.]

    Decent book

    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.
