Techniques and habits discussed in the book in combination with stories to illustrate the application of the techniques have great application in today's society. Many of us are very stressed over what is happening in our lives and seem to be overwhelming at the time--and at that time, it probably is. Life is filled with many, many instances/occurrences which cause us to get stressed, be it related to work, family, money, really anything. R. Carlson discusses techniques to change perspective. In November 2005, there was a 3-day period I was continually reflecting over a great monetary loss. I had not slept much over that period. Some time was spent during the 3rd day listening to 'Don't Sweat the Small Stuff...,' I heard just one technique and in a moment my perspective changed; instantly, the pressure I felt in my chest from the stress caused by my loss vanished and I felt great peace.
Life my not be easy, but, we don't need to be stressed out over everything.
Great listen/read, well worth the investment.
