Publisher's Summary

Celebrating the 75 anniversary of the original landmark bestseller How to Win Friends and Influence People, comes an up-to-the-minute adaptation of Carnegie’s timeless prescriptions for the digital age.

Dale Carnegie’s principles have endured for nearly a century. Since its original publication in 1936, his timeless classic How to Win Friends and Influence People has gone on to sell 15 million copies. Now, introducing new listeners to Carnegie’s words of wisdom, comes How to Win Friends and Influence People in the Digital Age, a new guide for a new era.

Dale Carnegie could never have predicted the trajectory that new media would take, and the ways that the simple television screen would be adapted into computers and handheld communication devices. He didn’t know the term “social media” and Facebook was something not even dreamed of in Buck Rogers cartoons. And yet his lessons remain relevant for everyone who communicates online today. In fact, with problems such as cyber bullying and email etiquette, we need Carnegie’s help more than ever. Dale Carnegie and Associates, Inc. has re-imagined Carnegie’s lasting lessons for this difficult digital age, reframing Carnegie’s insights about communication, self-expression, and leadership. This book is a must-have guide for anyone who wants to find success on Facebook, Linked-In, Twitter, and any social media format today and in the future.

    "Revamped version falls short of the orginal
    "

    Although containing several of the old anecdotes from the original and providing a new spin on making friends and influencing people in today's digital world, the book lacks the charm of the first and focuses heavily on managerial and employer skills, as oppose to employee/everyday life skills. Greater focus on the core skillset of connecting the with real people and winning them over is needed.

    "Great people principles that everyone should know"

    Even though a bit of the content was not new to me the examples and reinforcement made it easily worth the investment of time and cash.
    Will be listening to it again.

    "Really bad book. Not worth buying."

    An all time time seller so I downloaded it to see what all the hype was about. Didnt learn a thing and everything may be relevant 30 years ago for the terribly inept, but not current or useful now. Save the dollars and dont download this dryly read and poorly executed repetitve book.

    "As titled, it brings the orig. to the digital age."

    Having read the original how to win friends, I noticed several of the exact same stories and lessons from the original text. Still they are certainly adequate stories that are appropriate for the lessons being taught. Well written and informative. But the main theme i got is if you wouldn't say it to your mom, don't post it on the net or in any social media. The original text seemed to have more "meat and potatoes" contained within the pages. This one seems to focus on what to post and not to post in social media. If you only read one of the two books, digital age or the original title, Id suggest reading the original. When the original text focuses on appropriate "snail mail" etiquette, the new version bears the same message substituting various "social media" for "letter" If you can make that mental substitution, just read the original text and you can get 90-95% of the New version's material from the original and maybe 20% more material that was cut for the digital edition.

    "Stick with the Original"

    Carnegie's original How to Win Friends and Influence people is one of the best books ever written. This book is just ok and really does not provide any significant insight that the original doesn't provide.

    "Modern take on an old Classic"

    For some reason, this updated version does not have the same appeal for me as the original. Yes, updated verbiage and examples are nice, but it's missing that special mannerism that was unique to Dale himself. It's not what you say, but how you say it. For that reason I give it a 3/5.

    "Timeless but obvious lessons"

    Communication is important in any area of life and it is a good listen but if you read the orginal version no need to get this one. Some tings are too obvious even though they are timeless.

    What made the experience of listening to How to Win Friends and Influence People in the Digital Age the most enjoyable?

    Good book, but the original one of Dale Carnegie had told almost everything, this one doesn't add very much in my opinion.

    "Read it or listen to it in the car! But do it!"

    This is more than a book, or audio track, it's a must for all serious business people, students of life, and self promotors. This 'book' is witty fast moving, concise and stuffed full of information to make your eyes water in delight. You will never be short of conversational ditties, or dinner over which to express your new found knowledge. Simply a great 'read', and listen. For those who missed the internet revolution or even the original book, here is a superb look into and out of an industry of promotion and the use of the new power of communication to get yourself heard, understood and listened to. Like 'Meetings with Remarkable Men' by Gurdjieff this book really is inspiring get it now, and enjoy.. you will!.

    Definitely one of the best versions taking into account today's digital challenges, modern day working styles and contestant evolving way of doing business. It is much more of a challenge today to inspire, influence and get the right motivational reactions from people around you. This will certainly open your eyes to practical things you can do today to impact your career and business tomorrow

    "good learning, sloppy math"

    I've learnt a lot from this book and although the statistical analysis presented is sloppy at best, the points highlighted hold tremendous value. anyone who listens to this book, will change at least one thing in their personality. The narration, at times, unfairly influences the meaning of what others tried to say, making it important to have an objective and critical mindset when listening.

    An old style book for the modern age. Has many references to the use of social media as a medium of influence and how to conduct your self through them. A good listen and can see where these mini motivating management courses get the ideas from.

    "Basically correct but cheesy"

    I agree with the principles in this book - that certain types of behaviour are powerful influencers and are better at eliciting a positive response from others. If you've not read the original then this is worth a listen.

    On the downside, the examples given are often cheesy. For some reason the author(s) seem to think Ronald Reagan is a great example of someone who does the right thing (this made me laugh out loud because of the sheer ignorance at what he did while in office), and there is big deal made about some baseball pitcher who didn't blame an umpire for a bad call. Also, the examples from people who attended Carnegie's lectures are often of the mould of "Everything was awful, then I did what Carnegie says, now everything is perfect".

    The narration feels like Petkoff thinks he is talking to a dim child - it's a bit patronising and cheesy. It would be far better if he just read the book rather than trying to emote on the key points.

    But anyway, on coming away from listening to this, my conclusion is that it is fundamentally correct and is worth knowing but the examples and delivery could be a lot better.
