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.

For some reason, this updated version does not have the same appeal for me as the original. Yes, updated verbiage and examples are nice, but it's missing that special mannerism that was unique to Dale himself. It's not what you say, but how you say it. For that reason I give it a 3/5.

Communication is important in any area of life and it is a good listen but if you read the orginal version no need to get this one. Some tings are too obvious even though they are timeless.

Every young person, high school / college along with us all need to be to know when it comes to social media. best example is someone who got fired for posting something on facebook. it happens. I wish i had read this book a year ago.
