      Any additional comments?

      Dale Carnegie is a legend in bossing up, personal confidence, and knowing how to navigate the social space to your advantage. This one is not as long. It is slightly older, and you might be able to tell, but this book is non-stop good shit. It all still applies, today. Even though the title sounds like it's for really under-confident, worrying people, it just has good perspectives for navigating life, and being successful in all aspects. (delivery style: slightly old school) ★★★★

      Story
      "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

      "Didn't like it at first....but worth the listen"
      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.

      Story
      "It solved 90% of my problems"
      Would you listen to How to Stop Worrying and Start Living again? Why?

      Yes! Because this book is full of practical information and real life stories that I won't be able to grasp at once. Besides, this book really calms my nerves just by listening to it, so yes, I would listen to it again.

      And more thing, since worrying is a habit and habits are hard to break I think it is necessary to listen to it over and over again.


      What did you like best about this story?

      The practical knowledge that can be easily applied to any life situations.


      What about Andrew MacMillan’s performance did you like?

      He's voice is really calming and clear.

      Any additional comments?

      Self-help books can easily be irritating but this one was actually cool, perhaps because it was one of the original ones and Dale Carnegie is sweet, and genuine. Recommended.

      Story
      "Excellent Motivational Audio Book"
      Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

      Yes. Dale Carnegie has done a tremendous favor to all of us in gathering these inspirational factual stories to help us in our daily struggle with life's tasks. I have read a number of his books but this one truly stands out for me.


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

      There were many, however, Professor William Lyon Phelps experience stands out for me. His mention of reading the Life of Thomas Carlyle drew my attention. I am a firm believer in self/ongoing education and have ordered Professor Phelps's and Thomas Carlyle's biography. I look forward to reading these books


      Which character – as performed by Andrew MacMillan – was your favorite?

      Dale Carnegie. Mr. MacMillan has a beautiful voice; very calming. I suffer from ringing in both ears; and listen to the audiobook at night (this is when the ringing seems to bother me the most).


      Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

      The young mother who attempted suicide. She had her daughter with her and the child asked her why they were going to take a nap-since it was early. As she laid in bed, waiting to die, this young mother heard a song which made her realize that God was with her and would help her through whatever life's obstacles came her way. This saved both the young mother and her child.


      Any additional comments?

      Thank you for providing these audiobooks to us. I especially enjoy listening to Lectures.
