    1. I am not much of a self help reader occasionally I will read a Christian living theology book but that s really it , but I recommend this book to everyone There are some real pearls of wisdom therein if you will pardon the cliche I definitely believe some of these strategies are intuitive, that you probably utilize some as survival mechanisms in your daily routine, just to get through the day and dealing with others But it never hurts to get a gentle reminder My recommendation is to keep this bo [...]




    2. Okay so it s not cool to read self help books and, frankly, most of them give me the heebie jeebies, but I think this book was kind of spot on I liked how the ideas were presented in small vignettes instead of a massive tome that overwhelms than inspires I think Carlson has a good point in suggesting that maybe we make a big deal out of things that aren t such a big deal I m a pretty easy going person for the most part oh, except for that depression thing and a lot of what he says reflects my o [...]


    3. STRESSED Once I get over pressured, the second thing I always do is to read this book of course the first and foremost is to pray.When we are pressured and stressed, we waste our time minding the tinsy minsy stuff in this world instead of fixing and turning our faces into what really pushes us into the edge.This inspiring book tells us literally NOT TO SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF and to stop the things that slow our progress in attaining a life free from stress.In the struggle of attaining freedom fro [...]


    4. This book was on the nightstand in a friend s guest room where I stayed recently its natural habitat, I suppose where else would you expect to find a book like this I read it over breakfast and it offers a bunch of tips on cultivating acceptance and loving kindness Imagine an irritating person as a tiny infant and then as a 100 year old OK, this made me tear up When someone criticizes you, start by agreeing with them valuable skill Nurture a plant talk to the plant, tell it you love it I thought [...]




    5. Sounds dramatic but this book has been life changing for me in how I approach life How had I never read this Not only have I read it twice, I took detailed notes and bought the audio book so I have it playing in my car on repeat I am someone who has always had bad anxiety and it s helped me tremendously, but the real value and difference comes in constantly reinforcing and reminding myself these lessons every single day otherwise I just go back into my old habits.




    6. Ever felt like the whole world has turned its back on you Lost your job, got buried in debt, drifted away from your loved ones Haven t we all Each of us go through trying times in our lives I cannot remember a single person who can claim that he she has never gone though tough times in his her life The problems that we face vary from one individual to another and the gravity of such depends on our varying priorities in life.The past few months have been very challenging from me A roller coaster [...]


    7. This is an excellent book that could change the readers behavior for the better The history of the book itself reveals how the author is ever ready to learn from the day to day happenings of life He got the idea of the title Don t sweat the Small Stuff from Dr Wayne W Dyer in the course of business correspondence and he has developed it as a valuable book for all.There are one hundred maxims in the book, all of which deserve serious consideration For the benefit of my readers, I shall list ten o [...]


    8. Snippets of good behavioral advice that anyone can accept.but putting them into practice Like so many books of the self help variety, all good stuff however people who are strongly locked into behaving in ways that are contrary to the direction being proposed here might find this book and so many others like it, just another stick to beat themselves with for not being OK The kinds of change that are required of people to have the behavioral changes described here take root are trans formative, t [...]

    10. The cover of this book says it was a bestselling book of the year at one time After opening it up and glancing through it, it t not hard to see why.The purpose of the book is to get you to look at things, common situations we all come across everyday, like being criticized or being given work than you can possibly finish, and see them a little differently Believe it or not, it delivers and in just a page or two at a time if you can believe that That s because the wisdom is definitely there, on [...]


    11. The concept of this book is an admirable one how to relieve stress in your life and achieve a higher level of inner peace However, while reading this book I found myself becoming stressed out This book is set up as essentially a list YES Another list of different methods and techniques that you can use to try and relieve stress from your life As I am reading the list of different ideas, they make sense, but I feel as though this book was throwing too much at me for any of it to really sink in I [...]




    12. Like so many books for self help, there s a huge disconnect between the ease of stating the philosophy, and the ease of implementing it Besides the huge disconnect between the imagined problem being solved and the real problems most people face.


    13. I was shocked at how wonderful this book is I expected it to be really hokey and lame, but it was genuinely very helpful I have incorporated many of the ideas into my daily life and they help me keep my anxiety under control I m pretty baffled that its so insanely mindful and helpful A.



    14. I liked this book than I expected to That is not exactly saying much, given I thought I would hate it For anyone wondering why I would read a book I expected to dislike partially professional research, partially because I ve learnt from being wrong about books before, and partially with the natural jealousy of a much less successful author intrigued by a book that has sold 10 million copies.This is a well meaning book with one central positive message which I agree with we all worry too much ab [...]
