The mass market book is small in size but packed with tons of reading. Like his other books he neatly has short chapters and then has a summary at the end of each section that you can go back to for review. It is a great reference book to have to go back to and re-read.
The earlier chapters were more valuable for me than the later chapters. Some chapters were more interesting than others. However overall I really enjoyed reading this book and I have definitely learned valuable techniques that will contribute to improving how I deal with worry.
"Have a message, and then think of yourself as a Western Union boy instructed to deliver it. We pay slight attention to the boy. It is the telegram we want. The message -- that is the thing. Keep your mind on it. Keep your heart in it. Know it like the back of your hand. Believe it feelingly. Then talk as if you were determined to say it. Do that, and the chances are ten to one that you will soon be master of the occasion and master of yourself."
Open this book to any page and read and you will be captivated by wisdom and humor. Your day will be better for it.
The idea of the book is that Mr. Carnegie will make a point and then use several stories to illustrate that point. If you read "How to Win Friends and Influence People," this book follows the same format. Honestly if you get the point with the first story, you could honestly skip to the next chapter if you want. I think the many stories are beneficial because they show you each given point in a few different situations.
The information is pretty much common sense but sometimes common sense is not so common. There are 28 chapters in this book and they are broken down into seven parts. You can refer to the item description to see the chapters. I found parts one to four to be very enlightening regarding facts about worry, analyzing worry, breaking worry before it breaks you, and a positive mental attitude. Again, the information is pretty much common sense, but the delivery was so inspiring and drove each point home. Part five deals with religion and having faith in God. I am a Christian so this hit home. Part six talks about dealing with criticism. It's rather short and I wish it were a little longer. Part seven is all about fatigue and insomnia caused by worry. It was OK but I didn't care too much for it. Interestingly it talks about insomnia but I fell asleep while reading it. You could skip part seven if you wanted to as I didn't get much from it. Part eight is nice because it is 31 short essays on different people and how they conquered their worry. Part eight is pretty much a "putting it all together" chapter. The stories very clearly illustrate all the different points made in the book.
The book is pretty easy to read. No big words or phrases and the flow is great. If you wanted to, you could finish this in two sittings; no boredom here.
You can't read any self-help book and just feel good about yourself. You need to apply the principles. Even though you will feel good and inspired after reading this book, honestly put it to use. Worry is all about how you think and how you deal with situations. Worry is not an incurable disease. You have total control over your worry. Sometimes we worry because we don't have all the facts about our worry to begin with (read part two.)
This book is not "How to win friends and Influence People" Part II; it is totally different. This book is about individuality as opposed to interpersonal skills. Some people are comparing both books and I don't understand why. The only similarities are the format and the author.
I highly recommend this book and I think you should find out what you worry about the most; be it finances, health, success, marriage, etc. and find other books to compliment this.
