How to win Friends & influence People

During the evening when I go to sleep, I'm fond of listening to a good audio book or speech by someone I find interesting. I hope you get as much pleasure out of listening to this audio book, "How to win Friends & influence People," at I did.

I am interested in hearing from all of you on what you think good techniques to making friends are. I thank you in advance for any help that you can give me on this subject.


Below is the complete audio book.

I need to read it every year for the rest of my life!

Seriously, the principles of good conduct are timeless....and its so easy to slip out and into bad habits or bad responses...

Great book.


Yes, please BUY this wonderful libertarian BOOK! We all must know the History of Freedom! Buy it today!

"The System of Liberty: Themes in the History of Classical Liberalism" ...by author George Smith --
Buy it Here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/05211820

Written over 70 years ago and still going strong.

There's a good reason for that. I would urge everyone interested in getting the message of Liberty out there to give a listen or read the book.

Thanks for bringing this book to the community, David!

I always like & respect people

who are themselves even if it rubs other people up the wrong way (not if they do it just to rub people the wrong way though!).

Lord Acton, Lord Chief Justice of England, 1875 - "The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the People v. The Banks."

How to just be yourself.

Sovereign human.


Like Carnegie would say

Talk to people about themselves and sincerely listen to what they have to say. Using this technique, people can normally find some common ground of interest.

I would also say that when you realize you are wrong, so does the other person 90% of the time. If you can admit that you were wrong, you gain a hefty amount of respect points. This has the added bonus that the other person is then more likely to admit when he or she is wrong in the future.

In no particular order...

I will listen the Stephen Covey's book tonight..

Thank you for reminding me about his book, "Seven habits of a highly effective person." That was an awesome book. I will check out the others also. Great post. Thank you for this help. I have problems sometimes communicating with others and this should help me.

This 'rapport' thing isn't just some game - it's real life.'

my steady girl can explain it better than I:
