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.

He draws your attention to common life scenarios and suggests a perspective that often differs from the instinctual response of the moment. At times you'll reflect to yourself how "obvious" some idea or another is, but rather than write the entire book off I suggest you appreciate your awareness of that perspective, and then continue reading.
This book is not an elaborate manual for how to live your life. If anything, it's a reminder: we get so caught up in our lives, our jobs, or habits that we go on auto-pilot and forget to bring ourselves back to the present moment. Carlson is saying, don't forget to examine your responses, to consider whether they are in line with a peaceful way of thinking, and to realize, if they aren't, that you can change them.
