"Those who don't know how to fight worry, die young." This ominous advice begins Dale Carnegie's bestseller, How to Stop Worrying and Start Living, an eight-part treatise on the follies of worrying. Like other Carnegie books, this one is packed with good old-fashioned common sense, illustrated with examples drawn from research on historical figures and interviews with business leaders. Somehow, even the most simple advice--such as Carnegie's four-step method of problem solving--is presented in a way that makes you want to write it down and post it on the employee bulletin board. Narrated by the resonant and engaging voice of Andrew McMillan and loaded with relevant real-life examples, this unabridged audiobook maintains interest throughout. (Running time: 10.5 hours, eight cassettes) --Sharon Griggins --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
About the Author
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.

Dale Carnegie makes the suggestion that you read the book not once, but monthly as a refresher. I'm a slow reader so it may take me more than a month to read it over but I've decided to set time aside in my daily life for meditation during which the reading of this book will take place. I'm now starting to read his better known book "How to Influence People..." and although I'm skeptical of how much I'll actually learn from it, (I mean how much can reading a book behind closed doors help me live life outside of them), I've learned I have nothing to lose, and everything to gain.
Highly recommend it to any skeptical worriers.
Worried about the time you'll waste reading it and not working or filling out bills? Worried about dishing 10 bucks out for a brand new copy instead of saving up for that big screen TV that will really make you "happy"? I'm pretty sure the results will yield 10x what you pay in time & money with the revived attitude true understanding of the basic ideals listed in this book will bring to mind.
Hope this helps!
Though Dale Carnegie lives decades ago, his methods are built upon largely unchanged human behavior. Although the situations may be concerning people I have never heard of (not being old enough to know them), you can still relate. He shows positive thinking that is more practical and frivilous than idle talk that I have come to see with the general positive thinking mindset.
I would consider this one of the most powerful books for assisting worry. The solutions are practical, attainable, and applicable. His language, though peppered with phrases now outdated or unrecognizable, is spoken casually and from the point of someone who honestly wants to help you.
If you are struggling with anxiety, or simply a person who wants to improve their life, this book can become one of your best tools.
