Really? Even with the 50+ million sales and the instant name recognition? The title is practically part of the English language now.

I just finished reading it. I don't think its particularly well-structured. Certain things could have been rearranged to flow better and make things easier to remember. The entire book probably could have been shortened to 15-20 pages and the anecdotes (which quickly get repetitive) omitted. I'm also a bit skeptical of taking marital advice from a guy who (iirc) got divorced some time after he wrote the book.

That said, the rest of the advice is solid and its surprising how consistently modern psychology studies confirm them.

I'm curious to your guys' story , when did you read this book and how did it help you afterward?

You appear to be baiting with a broken hook, guy. From one fisherman to another you've gotta reel that line in and get some better bait on a new hook before casting that line out there again. Nice attempt though!

Currently reading. Only half way through but its pretty basic. But for someone like me basic is good. At times reads more like an advertisement for Hargreaves Lansdown.

its pretty basic.
good because i know nothing about investments. so far I reached page 46 and I just read the part about why I shouldn't use a financial adviser but instead should invest myself. It's directed a lot towards the financial market in the UK but I assume it's somewhat similar where I live in Scandinavia

Why do you say that? Human nature hasn't changed that significantly since the 50's (since ancient times even). The advice about making others feel important (which is basically a 1 sentence summary of the entire book) seems to still hold.

Modern self-help books in this area just seem to regurgitate the ideas that were laid down here.

Is it for political reasons, or as a primer for jewish trickery?

Actually I'm from /lit/ and this board fell for the business book meme. Figures since most Veeky Forums users don't like reading. Self-help books and proprietary advice are the lazy man's way of doing something. It's enticing to NEETs who don't want to learn multiple social subjects. Self-help is giving enough of a shit about yourself.

The worst offender being this book is the Sun Tzu's "Art of War" of the self-help genre in that the advice it gives is not applicable to anything. It's repackaged psychology. Self-help authors purposefully overlap with psychology although the psychology book has information organized. Don't fall for this dumb genre.

PS. I am still coming from a high so my sentences are incomplete clauses. Ew

I love Dostoyevsky but putting that book on a Veeky Forums list is fucking ridiculous.

Yes. Doesn't live up to it's title.
If you're a total asshole, or an autismo who doesn't "get" interacting with people you'll get something out of it. However if you have at least normal social skills, don't bother, read some sales technique literature if you're trying to be some kind of pathological entrepreneur.

I've read the sparknotes, I'd recommend it. As Monty Python said:
I've told him he's welcome to teach any of the great socialist thinkers, provided he makes it clear that they were wrong.

How good at Math do I have to be to get anything outta this?
