Dale Carnegie (1888-1955) described himself as a "simple country boy" from Missouri but was also a pioneer of the self-improvement genre. Since the 1936 publication of his first book, How to Win Friends and Influence People, he has touched millions of readers and his classic works continue to impact lives to this day.

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.
Dale Carnegie is great at telling short anecdotes of people he knows that relate precisely to what needs to be said. It reminds me of Malcolm Gladwells style of writing, and its effective at both conveying info and keeping you entertained.
You will come away from this book with a number of different techniques that genuinely help eliminate or reduce worry, stress, and anxiety. Better yet you'll be able to redirect your worry into useful endeavors. Basically, worry isn't something to be completely rid of, its simply needs to be intelligently directed.
I found this book particularly interesting because Dale Carnegie continuously tells stories of people, places, circumstances. The neat part is that it becomes a history lesson because the book was written in 1948. You really get a fascinating look at this time period. You will find titillating references to presidents and industrialists you haven't thought of in ages.
Carnegie finds a way to really solidify practical ways to change your perspective on what's terrorizing you in your day-to-day life. He helps you take things one step at a time with this boo and relieve you from the load you've been carrying on your back as you try to deal with your earthly problems. This book has been such a godsend, and has really helped me slap some sense into myself.
I purchased this book on Kindle, but liked it so much that I went to Barnes and Noble to pick up a physical copy just to have on my shelf as a reminder of how to stop worrying and start living. I plan on going back through my shelf copy to highlight and bookmark my favorite passages, and I plan on rereading this book several times to solidify the ideas in my mind.
