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. ( )

This helped me get sleep during 2012 by listening to it at night.

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. ( )

As "self-help" books go, I enjoyed this book. It was recommended by my job search coach after I confessed I still carried baggage from a previous employer. ( )

Haiku summary

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
