  • Edition is full of typos, waste of money

    By Whitney18181818
    There are egregious typos throughout this edition. This is a scam by this publisher. Spend a little more and get a proper version.
  • Everything you will learn in this book works

    By LilMoist
    I was texting a girl while reading the book and our relationship was amazing at first went out a few times before but slowly our conversations started to become less frequent and eventually it seemed like we didn’t even want to speak to each other. I decided to try out the principles that Dale Carnegie covers and as expected it actually worked out. Our conversations are fun and thriving all by me tweaking myself slightly. Instead of speaking about myself and my personal experiences I listen to her and in turn, she tells me everything. Thank you to Dale Carnegie for an amazing book

  • Typos abound

    By Firehouse Harris
    Typos, misspellings, and sentences with missing words are all over the place. Not the treatment this classic deserves.
