While the takeaway from the book is pretty apparent and a few interesting anecdotes caught my attention, the overall message is a rather mushy, chasing butterflies in the meadows and crapping rainbows vibe. Smile, heal everyone with kindess, make the other person feel important, don't engage in debat... Having read this just after Principles by Ray Dalio (which I strongly recommend), I was very disappointed with How To Win Friends And Influence People in which we are instructed to turn into a needy, cloying aunt that desperately wants her nieces and nephew to like her.
