Simpleology Summary: How to Win Friends and Influence People

This book is the yin (light) to The 48 Laws of Power‘s yang (dark).

The Taoists believe you need to master both forces to be a true master of life.  My personal experience supports this view completely.  Here’s why.

For many years I was “all yin and no yang.”  I was a master of the gentle art of persuasion best expressed in How to Win Friends and Influence People.  The benefit to this approach was that I amassed an enormous following of folks who know, like, and trust me.

So far, so good.

The downside?  Being all-yin is like wearing a neon sign on your head that says “exploit me!

But there is a cost to the all-yang-no-yin approach as well …

What was the inevitable consequence of falling to the dark side?  Isolation … physical decay … mental anguish …

So, where does this leave us?

Well, remember – the Jedi were warriors.  Warriors with a code, but warriors nonetheless.

An all-yin approach to life is the path of the healer … the mother … the artist … And these folks, unless they train themselves to be savvy fighters, need warriors in their lives for protection.

So, the Jedi walked this path between light and dark.  And kept themselves in balance through their code.

How to Win Friends and Influence People is the “code,” more or less, for the entrepreneurial warrior.  A pleasant side effect is an enormous tribe who will not only buy your products, but also fight on your side if the need arises.
