      "Guide to a happy life"

      Very interesting book. I'm pretty sure many can relate. It's more of a guide.

      "Awesome book! Inspiring!"

      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 -'

      "Great Refresher and Motivator!"

      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.

      "Good ideas survive over time"

      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".

      "Something Else You May Already Know..."

      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.

      "Great listen, but unhelpful"

      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.

      "Stop Worrying"

      While somewhat dated, a lot of the principles certainly apply in the modern world.

      "Wow! What an amazing book!"

      I couldn't stop listening to this audio and was almost sad when it finished. You don't necessary need to be someone who suffers from worrying to listen to it.
      The true stories told as examples were interesting and I felt I could relate to the scenarios as even though they happened to these people a long time ago they still apply to our modern day living and lifestyles. It's one of those books that you find yourself nodding your head to in agreement, or saying out loud 'yep, I know that feeling" it helps you and I have picked up so much tips and practical easy to follow advice from it.
      The narrating was perfect for its style.
      Seriously loved this and will also start looking at what else Mr Dale Carnegie has written. Thank you, this has helped me a lot. Try it!

      "A MAP FOR LIFE"
      Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

      I would and have recommended this book to many friends; particularly those who do worry.


      Any additional comments?

      This book is another classic and should be compulsory ready in all Secondary schools. It's full of common sense but delivered in an up to date way even though it was written so long ago. It's kind of an early form of Mindfulness.

      "Good, but no classic"

      I had previously read Dale Carnegie's immortal How To Win Friends and Influence People which is a five-star read/listen. This audio book, however, has less depth of conviction and feels more like a straightforward business enterprise, words churned out to cash in rather than words of real research and experience. If you've not already got How to Win Friends, go and buy that now. Instead of this. If you are a natural worrier and want coping mechanisms, then this book is probably for you, but it's not the brilliant piece of work that stands on its own in the way that How to Win Friends is.

      "Good work but outdated"

      I used to love this book. Dale Carnegie did what he did really well, it's well read - yet there have been massive advance in psychological techniques to deal with worry. Some of them are in here and it's worth listening to plunder the quotes of ancient wisdom (and see where Alcoholics Anonymous nicked stuff from!). But if you really need some help, I'd look to current stuff.
