Dale Carnegie wrote some great books back in the 30's and 40's, and this book is one of them. Readers who liked Carnegie's bestselling How to Win Friends & Influence People won't be disappointed in this book.

The writing style is classic Carnegie. To put it simply, the guy just writes like he talks. This makes for a very friendly and easy to understand book, rather like a good friend giving you a piece of advice.

And a lot of advice he gives. The book is divided up into ten sections, each one tackling some aspect of worrying. I could give you a rundown of the topics, but you don't really need me to repeat the table on contents to decide if you want to read the book. Rather, let me just say that book covers just about every major "worry issue" that might be causing a troubled mind, such as your work, your finances, other people's criticisms- and them some.

While there are no earth-shattering, never-before-seen tips in the book, I wouldn't hesitate for a second to recommend it to anyone who is looking to ease their mind a bit. That's because it does a GREAT job of conveying simple wisdom that really make you think good and hard about why you're worrying and if those things are really worth worrying about at all.

In short, its a bestseller because it makes a lot of sense and its advice can do a lot to re-frame your thinking about things. And if you can re-frame your thinking, well, you've about found the best "Compound-W" for worry warts.

Dale Carnegie has given excellent real life examples which relate to the practical situations of stress experienced by each of us in life. Worry is something which can affect your health, happiness and keep you away from the happiness of living life. The book deals with numerous ways of how to vent out worries from your mind with very simple and practical techniques. It's a great book and the examples given are excellent and touch your heart.

I like to read reviews before I purchase a book so naturally I took into account all of the other reviews made on this book thus far. I was very impressed and decided 'what the heck!?' This book did not live up my expectations, it CRUSHED them by surpassing them TREMENDOUSLY!!! We all have our good days and bad days, we're human. We all notice patterns in our daily lives that make us feel better and try to remember them so we can stay in our state of 'euphoria' and 'productiveness' for long amounts of time. This book helps remind you of all those wonderful things you remember to help you live a better life, from relaxing the eyes to prevent fatigue to reading valuable quotes by Jesus that prove we were not, as humans, meant to worry about anything! This book is not recommended for those who have trouble worrying, it's recommended to EVERYONE in this world! Heart attacks, stomach ulcers, nervous break downs, high blood pressure, and non-hereditary diabetes are everywhere in this world...and they are caused by worry/stress/tension...all things Dale helps you EASILY solve and forget! Buy this cheap $8 life-changing book!

i ll start my review from the quote: 'As a rule man is a fool, when it is hot he wants it to cool,when it is cool wants it to be hot, always wanting what is not' it true that we human always wants things what we dont have and never care for things that we have in past thats the main cause which bring us to stress, so now when we get stressed so this book porvide a great help for reducing the stress, with realistic examples. this book is very good in order to live life fully.

In 1944, when this book was first published, what they called 'worry' was what we now call 'stress.' This is a great book on how to deal with stress. The methods are simple and straightforward and Carnegie delivers them with a good helping of entertainment in the form of true stories. This book is really seven small books bound together into one: The first is a short description of the health affects of too much stress, and two basic principles to handle almost any form of stressful situation. The second book is really about the form of stress we now call worry and how to eliminate it. The next three sections are full of practical principles to not only have less stress in your life, but how to have more happiness. They are mostly new mental habits. Carnegie tells you how to think about situations so that you minimize your stress and maximize your effectiveness. Good stuff. Then there's a section on dealing with criticism. And finally, a section on work habits and sleep habits that can add more time to your day and give you more energy during your working day. I'm the author of the book, Self-Help Stuff That Works, and I am an expert on what works and what doesn't. In my expert opinion, How to Stop Worrying and Start Living is jam-packed with more practical advice than any other book on the market. I highly recommend it.

Dale Carnegie Never Fails To Write an Empowering Advice Book This book was a lifesaver for me, because I worry about everything, and this book has provided me with the wisdom I need to grow into the more confident, assertive person I was truly meant to be. Carengie is one of my top authors, and I highly regaurd him. The writing of his work has helped me to ward off my anxiety by thinking about what is causing me to worry, why I am worrying and how I can  resolve the conflict that is causing my anxiety. Simple techniques like these have  helped me to live a more relaxing well deserving life.

It’s a funny thing: The principles that Dale Carnegie talks about are obvious, but they’re difficult to implement in real life. The greatest challenge, in my opinion, is conquering your own character traits that don’t let you behave the way you want. The best book on emotional control, which includes anxiety, is recently published Secret Techniques for Controlling Sadness, Anger, Fear, Anxiety, and Other Emotions by Vlad Koros. Koros guides you step by step using funny examples how to turn off your anxiety at will. I tried it on several occasions, and I can’t believe that it works! Once you can control your inclinations, you can try Carnegie’s advice. At least, I will.
