Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Got a stress case in your life? Of course you do: "Without question, many of us have mastered the neurotic art of spending much of our lives worrying about a variety of things all at once." Carlson's cheerful book aims to make us stop and smell--if not roses--whatever is sitting in front of our noses. Don't Sweat the Small Stuff... offers 100 meditations designed to make you appreciate being alive, keep your emotions (especially anger and dissatisfaction) in proper perspective, and cherish other people as the unique miracles they are. It's an owner's manual of the heart, and if you follow the directions, you will be a happier, more harmonious person. Like Stairmasters, oat bran, and other things that are good for you, the meditations take discipline. Even so, some of the strategies are kind of fun: "Imagine the people in your life as tiny infants and as 100-year-old adults." The trouble is, once you start, it's hard to stop.

From Library Journal

Stress consultant Carlson reads his self-help guide with conviction, his gentle voice clear and persuasive. He presents common-sense advice for living a less hectic and more meaningful, loving life. His essential message is that we get caught up in minutiae, "the small stuff," and never get around to doing what makes us or our loved ones happy. He advises readers to engage in such small acts as paying someone a compliment daily, putting a lid on keeping track of who does what around the house, and writing a letter to a friend. Carlson urges small daily changes and uses examples of improvement from his own life to show how the advice works, making the book ideally suited to the audio format. Tape quality is excellent.

From AudioFile

Learning to live in the present, increasing stress tolerance, living each day as if it might be the last, and accepting imperfections consistently are a few of the lessons taught by Dr. Richard Carlson. Calm, convincing, confident and effective, Dr. Carlson stresses the importance of keeping life in perspective, allowing the important things to gain priority, resulting in a more satisfying and centered outlook. Carlson focuses on eliminating many of the complications unknowingly created by the average person. He emphasizes simplicity in daily living by abandoning externally caused stress. Listeners may want a "second listen" of this single-cassette program to ensure long-term results. B.J.P.
