      "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".

      "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.

      "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.

      "Narrator is a perfect choice"
      Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

      Even though the stories are dated, the messages and lessons are spot-on for these times. I sit outside in the summer morning air with my coffee and listen to a chapter each day. Perfect way to start the day. Practical, inspiring and perspective framing.

      The narrator, Andrew MacMillan, is a perfect choice for this book. While I don't know what Dale Carnegie sounded like, I can imagine him sounded just like that.


      Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

      yes

      What did you like best about How to Stop Worrying and Start Living? What did you like least?

      Zoned out a few times but after awhile, some things stuck. Worth the listen. For example, expect ingratitude, set a stop-loss

      "Still applicable in today's world"
      What did you love best about How to Stop Worrying and Start Living?

      It is easy to relate the stories and examples to situations that occur in todays life


      What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Stop Worrying and Start Living?

      Once completed the most memorable moment was that someone who I respected greatly recommended the book to me and it just resonated with me. Thanks Rob


      What does Andrew MacMillan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

      Mr. MacMillan emphasizes his take on the book with inflections in certain stories that I may have not picked up reading the book myself. Extremely enjoyable


      Any additional comments?

      I have recommended the book to several people that read the book and now we relate some of the books tales to life's daily opportunties. I looked forward to my 45 minute drive to work and home to queue up the next chapter. It was fun sharing my learnings with my wife.

      "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.
