Quick Version: How to Win Friends & Influence People

How to Win Friends & Influence People - Basic Summary

The first self-help book I ever read (actually, listened to on tape!). It was recommended to be my first boss, Ray.

What I remember most was that most of the information in the book is advice that I had heard before, but did not know it was attributed to this book. For example, the advice on getting a job interviewer to do the majority of the talking, or the importance of smiling, were items I had heard before. Yet it was truly valuable to hear them all combined, and in context.

Another feeling I got from listening to the book was the need to be reminded of these critical principles. Sure, it's nice to learn them once - but they are useful enough that a refresher on them never hurts.

Well, now you can get the refresher in a condensed one page version.
