Although containing several of the old anecdotes from the original and providing a new spin on making friends and influencing people in today's digital world, the book lacks the charm of the first and focuses heavily on managerial and employer skills, as oppose to employee/everyday life skills. Greater focus on the core skillset of connecting the with real people and winning them over is needed.

Having read the original how to win friends, I noticed several of the exact same stories and lessons from the original text. Still they are certainly adequate stories that are appropriate for the lessons being taught. Well written and informative. But the main theme i got is if you wouldn't say it to your mom, don't post it on the net or in any social media. The original text seemed to have more "meat and potatoes" contained within the pages. This one seems to focus on what to post and not to post in social media. If you only read one of the two books, digital age or the original title, Id suggest reading the original. When the original text focuses on appropriate "snail mail" etiquette, the new version bears the same message substituting various "social media" for "letter" If you can make that mental substitution, just read the original text and you can get 90-95% of the New version's material from the original and maybe 20% more material that was cut for the digital edition.

Carnegie's original How to Win Friends and Influence people is one of the best books ever written. This book is just ok and really does not provide any significant insight that the original doesn't provide.

This is more than a book, or audio track, it's a must for all serious business people, students of life, and self promotors. This 'book' is witty fast moving, concise and stuffed full of information to make your eyes water in delight. You will never be short of conversational ditties, or dinner over which to express your new found knowledge. Simply a great 'read', and listen. For those who missed the internet revolution or even the original book, here is a superb look into and out of an industry of promotion and the use of the new power of communication to get yourself heard, understood and listened to. Like 'Meetings with Remarkable Men' by Gurdjieff this book really is inspiring get it now, and enjoy.. you will!.

I've learnt a lot from this book and although the statistical analysis presented is sloppy at best, the points highlighted hold tremendous value. anyone who listens to this book, will change at least one thing in their personality. The narration, at times, unfairly influences the meaning of what others tried to say, making it important to have an objective and critical mindset when listening.
