Summary:

What does it take to win success and influence?

Some people think that in today’s hyper-competitive world, it’s the tough, take-no-prisoners type who comes out on top. But in reality, argues New York Times bestselling author Dave Kerpen, it’s actually those with the best people skills who win the day. Those who build the right relationships. Those who truly understand and connect with their colleagues, their customers, their partners. Those who can teach, lead, and inspire.
 
In a world where we are constantly connected, and social media has become the primary way we communicate, the key to getting ahead is being the person others like, respect, and trust. Because no matter who you are or what profession you're in, success is contingent less on what you can do for yourself, but on what other people are willing to do for you. Here, through 53 bite-sized, easy-to-execute, and often counterintuitive tips, you’ll learn to master the 11 People Skills that will get you more of what you want at work, at home, and in life. For example, you’ll learn:
 
·  The single most important question you can ever ask to win attention in a meeting
·  The one simple key to networking that nobody talks about
·  How to remain top of mind for thousands of people, everyday
·  Why it usually pays to be the one to give the bad news
·  How to blow off the right people
·  And why, when in doubt, buy him a Bonsai
 
A book best described as “How to Win Friends and Influence People for today’s world,” The Art of People shows how to charm and win over anyone to be more successful at work and outside of it.

    Great book from start to finish! Dave does a great job on the audio and full of great lessons

  • Al C

    Narration was annoying. The info was nothing new. I was hoping for more info specifically about people and personalities and building rapport. Less of the authors specific interactions.

  • Michelle Hampson

    Good advice presented in a well-structured way along with action steps.

  • Moises Martinez

  • Axel Malekia

    This is an excellent book with practical application for the workplace and at family level. A great book for anyone wanting to make a difference with their people relationship skills. Thank you Dave.

  • Brian Basken

    Not worth the full $15. No real original content. I found the speaking style hard to listen to.

  • Michael Laczynski
