Only 2 chapters in, and I'm already so thankful I picked this up. Life changing stuff here. HIGHLY recommend.
I enjoyed every minute of the book, and great narration as well.
I think this book covers pretty much everything about worrying and anxiety.
Even if you are not that worried right now, this book will inspire you, help you, make you think, and
influence you. This book is just as great as 'how to win friends -'
Although many of the practices described in this book are tought to us through every day life, family and friends, workshops and education, it refreshes the different aspects and allows one to reset their minds. Some techniques I have used before I fell into the habbit of worrying. The more I worry, the less I live. Now, I realize I was doing it right and that I need to adjust other methods and settings, if I want to stop worrying. I can take back control and live my life the best possible. This book is not a one time read if you want to change your worrying habbit.
The fact that this book, which is decades old, and is still selling strong, should tell you how good it is. The book is full of examples from some famous, and not so famous people which should inspire you to do exactly as the title says, "How to stop worrying and start living".
This audiobook is straight-forward and the narrator does a great job, but--as it says on the cover-photo--it contains 'time-tested methods,' (read: nothing new here).
Knowing something and doing it is still a problem, in the end.
The How to Win Friends and Influence People audiobook transformed my life, so I thought I would give this one a try. Unfortunately, I can't say I got much out of the book's content.
But Andrew MacMillan reading Dale Carnegie is epic. I've never seen heard such an incredible author/narrator matchup (except maybe Richard Dawkins reading Charles Darwin), and this made it a pretty enjoyable listen.
I would recommend this book to any of my friends that struggle with worry. I picked up this book because my worrying was destroying relationships with my friends. I just finished it this morning, but its already made a difference. I have a feeling I will need to listen to it again in a month or two to see what I missed the first time through.
He does a really good job of showing what worry can do to your health if you keep it up too. Some of the stories that were told in the book really fit me well.
I'd recommend it to any worrier that is really willing to try and apply what it teaches to your life. If you aren't wanting to change then this book would really be a waste of your time.
By far the most helpful audiobook I've read. It changes your entire way of thinking for the better and teaches you to better cope with life's different situations, especially stressful ones.
I wish I could have listened to it all in one sitting, but I'm also glad I split it up over several days because then I could mull over everything and let the wisdom sink in.
I took notes through the entire book because I wanted to be able to remind myself of key points. I'll definitely be listening to the entire book again at least once a year and reading through my notes often.
