Very useful knowledge. Should be taught in schools.
Main focus is on describing how badly worries can affect people's health.
I would recommend this book to everyone, whether you worry or not this book has life altering advise. I was a worrier about everything, the weather, job, family, people not liking me, my weight, you name it I worried about it. This book has shown my areas that I can change now, as well as future habits! I now see things through different glasses and see a change in my worry habit. For those of you that say this is an old book and not relevant for today's world, that is what I thought, you would be wrong just as I was!! It surprised me to the degree that I identified with almost all of the examples that the author uses. This book is well worth your time!
This classic book of approaches to stop worrying has many common sense ideas, which at the time the book was written was likely cutting edge to see compiled in one book. There are lots of vignettes of how this or that person overcame worry as well as general techniques to apply to conquer worry.
I've thoroughly enjoyed and have benefited from this book and the stories and recommendations contained within. I highly recommend this for anyone with stress or just needing perspective.
Yes it's full of great advice!
Short vignettes packed with wisdom!
No. I listen a little each night before bed.
