      "Excellent book with a great philosophy in the examples and stories."

      I love this book and the fact that Mr. Carnegie incorporated scripture and prayer into his advice for handling every day situations.

      "Foundational & Timeless."

      Within these pages are thousands of hours of research - practical research that can only be found in the fox holes and the trenches of real life.
      Fear and and worry has plagued mankind forever and will continue to do so. This little book contains the keys to a life of happiness and joy.

      "How to stop worrying"

      I really enjoyed listening to this book. Although set over seventy years ago, the philosophy is still relevant for today. In the book Dale relates many others' experiences and how they overcame their difficulties, very interesting and inspiring. It's hard to fully appreciate how lucky we are living in this age, until you hear what people only a few decades ago had to put up with!
      Dale also quotes many of the big names of his time from psychology such as Carl Jung, ALfred Alder, and its interesting to hear how little our problems and solutions have changed over the years. A very enjoyable listen full of helpful, practical advice.

      "very good book"

      i am not what i consider a worrier but having heard the other book how to win friends and influence people i brought this book.
      I am glad i did,it has some pearls of wisdom and in hindsight i do worry to some extent and have since stopped.
      It is an interesting book and i recommend it.

      "Incredibly Practical"

      Many self-health books do not give practical advice about how to stop worrying. This is not one of them. "How To Stop Worrying and Start Living" has been a great comfort to me over the years. I first read the book nearly 10 years ago when I desperately needed help to cope with taking exams at school. It definitely helped me get through the exams and since then I have used the book to deal with all sorts of worries, from job interviews to bereavement to dealing with criticism from others.

      One of the best aspects of the book is the huge number of true life stories of people who have dealt with all sorts of difficult situations, everything from low self-esteem to facing up to a terminal illness. Dale Carnegie doesn't berate the reader or speak down to them, but nor does he pander to their fears. He encourages you to look at your worry situation clearly and honestly and to take practical steps to resolve the issue or to learn to cope with it.

      Is the tone of the book old-fashioned? Well, a bit. Obviously, it was written in the 1940s and so certain attitudes relate to that time period. For example, women were only starting to make their mark in the world of work, and the book reflects this. Nevertheless, I think most of the stories are timeless and are still useful and relevant today.

      I would definitely recommend this book to anybody who is a worrier and / or going through a difficult time.

      "Classic and old fashioned"

      Strange language is used in many different parts of this book and it is clearly written in another generation. This adds to the charm. The voice of the narrator is strangely soothing and easy to listen too, I enjoyed this immensely.

      "Break the habit a life-saving course of action"

      Taking worry by the shoulders and shaking it off yourself is liberating and allows you to get on with so much more that is important in life. Spending time in Dale Carneigie?s world you suddenly realise it can become your world too.It is important to say that Old Dale?s book does exactly what it says on the tin and really does work. It is a comfort read at a time when we all need a comfort read?but it also presents practical strategies and some sharp and universal observations that on reflection I have found to be true in the here and now.

      Again,read from the point of view as a work of narrative fiction, this book also functions perfectly well and is hugely enjoyable. It presents as a work of early twentieth century Americana as much as the novels of Scott Fitzgerald or Upton Sinclair and presents a picture of American Society and in particular American corporate life that will be very familiar to anyone who has either worked with or visited the United States.

      "Gives Perspective"

      This is a wonderful book. It demonstrates the timelessness of "modern" anxieties and worries. People have been coming to terms with difficult, frightening and overwhelming feelings throughout history, and some of the situations experienced by people during the depression or the second world war gave me a real sense of perspective on my own worries. A great antidote for anxiety.

      "HOW TO STOP WORRYING AND START LIVING"

      This book changed my life. This is how much I think of it. I cannot recommend this book highly enough, For something that was written decades ago it is full of common sense ideas. I listen to it regularly and each time it gives me a different outlook on problems. If you are suffering from worry, stress, anxieties I would highly recommend this book

      I like Dale Carnegie and I like his style but this marathon is one of the best arguments for abridging the audio version of a book I have come across.
