21st Century Book Could Top Dale Carnegie's Classic: Wow! It has taken 64 years and a millennium. Finally, there's a book that could do a better job teaching interpersonal skills job than 1936's, How to Win Friends and Influence People. And because this book is a 21st century product, it's more in tune with today's world. Also, it uses a simpler, more direct approach than Carnegie did. What it does is teach us to make people feel good about themselves. In a nutshell, that's the book's incredibly simple concept. It boils down to this: Whether we deal people MakeFeelGoods or MakeFeelBads affects our relationships positively or negatively. Thus, we must learn to ingrain practices that deal the MakeFeelGoods and purge those that deal the MakeFeelBads. To help us do that, the author focuses on our routine, daily contacts with people. Using real-world skits, he explains dos and don'ts of relationships - those with our spouses, romantic partners, parents, brothers, sisters, friends, customers, business associates, and co-workers. And it's refreshing that the writing is not technical or boring. Rather, it's riveting and conversational. We think the author is talking to us. That makes the book an easy, quick read. It flows well. Moreover, it's organized for ready comprehension and retention of points. And for emphasis, certain text is in color. Also, the many captions are in color. This is handy later to find a point that we had considered particularly important. As to other features, the interior has top-of-the-line-60 pound-vellum-bright-white paper and even some full-color illustrations. Thus, this is a quality production. It's well written and makes a lot of sense. It could help just about anyone get along better with others. And according to a survey taken by Public Agenda, a nonprofit research group, most persons consider that skill as one of those more important for success than a college diploma. Yes, learning how to get along better with others, is something that most of us rank near or at the top of our want-to-accomplish lists. This book can show us how.
