I'm done. No more. 40 % is good enough for this book. I don't get how anyone can read 300 pages of this. It's the same idea in every chapter and it gets incredibly boring to read. Every story mentionend, reads exactly the same, because it's always in his "I'm a motivational speaker style". Reminds me too much of those shitty buzzfeed lists "YOU WON'T BELIEVE WHAT HE DID NEXT!". It didn't expext it to be based in scientific fact, but a few more practical tips would've been nice.

What I liked the most were the 10 things you should do "Just for Today".

"A man can be concerned about his serious problems and still walk with his chin up and a carnation in his buttonhole."
Funniest part of the book.

From now on I'll consider this book read. ( )

I can attest to the value of each of Dale Carnegie's books, although I initially approached them with as much cynicism is possible. Long ago, the bank I was working for sent me, a shy stuttering new manager, to take the Dale Carnegie course. I soon learned what it taught me was plain commonsense. For instance, if you're worried about something, think about the worst possible thing that might happen, learn to accept it, and think about how you would deal with the consequences. Once you have done that, you can stop worrying about it. And you should never worry about things that probably won't happen at all. What a waste of time that is! I often recommend this book to friends I see who are down in the dumps and overcome by worries. It is a masterpiece. ( )

I wanted to learn from this book, but for some reason that I can't pinpoint, after starting it, I found myself passing over it time and time again when I would pick up one of the several books that I usually have going at any given time. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0671035975, Paperback)

"Those who don't know how to fight worry, die young." This ominous advice begins Dale Carnegie's bestseller, How to Stop Worrying and Start Living, an eight-part treatise on the follies of worrying. Like other Carnegie books, this one is packed with good old-fashioned common sense, illustrated with examples drawn from research on historical figures and interviews with business leaders. Somehow, even the most simple advice--such as Carnegie's four-step method of problem solving--is presented in a way that makes you want to write it down and post it on the employee bulletin board. Narrated by the resonant and engaging voice of Andrew McMillan and loaded with relevant real-life examples, this unabridged audiobook maintains interest throughout. (Running time: 10.5 hours, eight cassettes) --Sharon Griggins
