I highly recommend this book to anyone who wishes to get on in the world. I ordered it this time because I teach AP English Language, and it is an excellent example of non-fiction writing. More importantly, it teaches us how to interact with people on personal and professional levels, reminding us that the best way to encourage behaviors in others is to allow them to want to do what we want them to do. It works. Getting along well with coworkers, achieving desired outcomes in the workplace, and just reducing stress levels when dealing with people, this book touches on all these topics. The first book of its kind, and still the best. Thank you Overstock for having it at such a good price. Everyone should read it. If you find the examples dated, then just read the last page of every chapter for insights into how to get along well with others.
