How to Win Friends and Influence People

November 21, 2022


I believe most of the principles mentioned in this book should be common knowledge and everyone should know and practice them. Personally, this book offered little in a way of fresh information, but still very useful.

I believe everyone should read this book. It can offer some insights, but be aware that it probably won’t change your perspective in a significant way.

The book offers some rather obvious principles, but they are very well structured. It’s a quick read, so I recommend going through it.

Here are some of my favourite principles:

And a few quotes:

“If there is any one secret of success, it lies in the ability to get the other person’s point of view and see things from that person’s angle as well as from your own.”

“When dealing with people, let us remember we are not dealing with creatures of logic. We are dealing with creatures of emotion, creatures bristling with prejudices and motivated by pride and vanity.”
