Winning Friends and Influencing People

51NVtjOrnqL._SL500_.jpg

I just finished reading How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie.  Here are a few of my favorite points from this book.

  • Criticism is futile, because it puts people on the defensive
  • Help people get what they want.
  • Be interested in what interests other people 
  • Be a good listener and encourage others to talk about themselves 
  • Always make the other person feel important 
  • Respect other people’s opinions
  • If you are wrong, admit it
  • Try to see things from the other person’s point of view

If you haven’t read this book yet, I highly recommend it.
