One of "those books" that describes evident facets of life, to reveal common sense paradigms of life, bringing in to focus principles we can all benefit by.
He is an outstanding narrator. His smooth, yet modestly variant tone, keeps the listener engaged.
This should be taught in high school and undergraduate studies as a core course. We would have many fewer problems.
This is timeless advice that will encourage anyone. Will challenge the "tape in your head" from worry to confidence.
Eversince I was a teenager I have red this book many many times, and every time I read it I learn somthing new, It works for me because talks about facts andrealities of lifre and tangible materials and I can experance and relate to that easily not only theories and thoughts,

A GREAT BOOK FOR SOMEONE WHO WORRIES ABOUT EVERYTHING.
HOW WORRY AFFECTS YOUE WHOLE LIFE, PHYSICAL AND MENTAL.
HELD MY ATTENTION FOR THE WHOLE BOOK, ENJOYED HIS NARRATION VERY MUCH.
WORRY CAN MAKE YOU SICK, SHORTEN YOUR LIFE AND MAKE YOUR LIFE A LIVING HELL!
RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO ALL WHO WORRY OR TO ANYONE WISHING TO HELP OTHERS TO STOP WORRYING.
Nobody doesn't worry in the world. In a sense, it might
give us something beneficial in terms of anticipating a harmful thing to
come, though. But worrying has a strong gene to build up itself once
embedded in our mind firmly.
Some spiritual books give us useful canons which are often stern,
meticulous and hard to sink in.
This book written by Dale Carnegie shows us very useful advices in a
practical way. In fact, people who love a serious way to solve their
problems in mind like a philosopher might not feel satisfied with this
book. Dale Carnegie adopted a style in which he tries to analyze
problems that people have in their workspace or at home objectively with
numerous and vivid examples. The most impressive point in the book is
these ample examples where he not only quotes beautiful sentences from
many books, but also let many people talk about their true and valuable
stories for us.
I had read this book in th paper-version last year when I was working in
Shanghai as an engineer. It helped me. This time, I have enjoyed it with
a clear narration by Andrew MacMilan, for my amusement after dinner and
partly for nourishing my English-ear.
No time for reading lately so I decided to take the audio road. Problem solved!
Yes. The content is motivational and help you maintain a positive attitude.
I appreciate the fact that the book is clearly divided at every chapter. Everyvtime you skip you begin with a new chapter. It is not always like this when you listen to audible's books on an iPod. I would appreciate it if you would make all books like this. It makes it much easier to work with. Thanks.
I've listened to about 12 books from audible this is by far the best one
The story about a ill man who took a casket with him on and cruse with instructions on where to send his body if he passed
Sharp,firm,confident very clear words
Not to let people who bother me rent space in my head. Let it go there not worth it
I always thought self help books are for losers and I never wanted to spend money on one put my father insisted that this book made if feel better years ago and he got it for me. And I'm so happy he did :)
I can listen to this book everyday for the rest of my life - it's that inspirational. Equally important to the contents, tha narrator Andrew does a phenomenal job. Worth more than the money I spent ;-)
I suffer from General Anxiety Disorder and take medication and have weekly therapy to learn to deal with my anxiety. I picked this book to help me reinforce the skills I'm learning to deal with the anxiety I have.
This book doesn't acknowledge how debilitating anxiety is, but sees it as a personal and simple issue to face. Many of the statements in the audiobook give the impression that stopping worry is simple and is an easy fix. Anyone with GAD knows that it's not easy to rid oneself of anxiety. It can paralyse oneself and keeps alot of us from reaching our goals.
The techniques discussed are basically part of any cognitive therapy. It's worth having just to remind one of the ways to handle anxiety. I just don't advise using this as part of therapy since it doesn't acknowledge how paralysing and stressful worry is to some people.
Tell us about yourself!
The book is filled with stories of people in worrying tremendously. Which were all to much for me. The stories are horrifying, endless and with seemingly no direction. The way these people (in the end) "successfully" handles their stress are by accepting destiny (many when facing death caused by sickness do to worrying, being humble to life, and/or finding (and praying to) God.
The stories are 50-100 years old and the problems facing thess persons seem different from the worries of modern man.
The book doesn’t offer any modern active way for dealing with anxiety, like analyzing yourself, your background and self confident, your surroundings, and so on. To me its views, values and techniques belong to former generations.
Buy yourself a more modern self help book, and save yourself a lot of worries.
