I’m not sure if I should be embarrassed or not, but I have to admit that I’m pretty excited about my August reading list recommendation. It’s a book called “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie.
I know, I know. It’s a little bit embarrassing that I’m only just now reading it, but at least I’m finally getting around to it. And who knows? Maybe I can use some of the techniques in the book to improve my relationships with my family and friends.
I mean, let’s face it. We could all use a little help when it comes to relationships. Especially when it comes to dealing with difficult people. So hopefully this book will be able to teach me how to better handle those situations.
And even if it doesn’t help me with my relationships, at least it should be entertaining to read. After all, it is a book about how to win friends and influence people. So I’m sure there will be plenty of interesting stories and examples in there.
I’m sure many of you are familiar with this book, but I had never read it before. I’m really looking forward to applying the principles in the book to my personal relationships, especially with my family.
I think my husband is going to be surprised when I start implementing some of the techniques in the book and he sees a change in our relationship for the better. I’m also excited to try out some of the tips on my daughter and step daughter. I know they can both be challenging at times, so hopefully this will help me to better connect with them.
Lastly, I’m going to try and apply what I learn from the book to my relationship with my son. He’s at an age where he’s starting to become more independent and I want to make sure that I’m still there for him as his mom. I think this book is going to help me do just that!
So there you have it. My reading recommendation for the month of August. I hope you’ll give it a try, whether or not you’re like me and just now getting around to reading it. And be sure to let me know what you think in the comments below. Have any of you read this book before? What did you think?
