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. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
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.

Sometimes people don't realize how they are acting and this give good "suggestions" on ways to handle different situations.
This book helped me out in such a way that I can safely say that after reading over 100 self improvement books this one is the #1 for me. So practical and easy reading so helpful to abtain more peace in life. While its not going to be the only book one needs for peace of mind and getting through lifes rough edges. It sure is worth reading once or twice a year for a refresher. A side sad note, the author who was a kindhearted and loving father, husband, and friend passed away on an airplane ride to NY at the end of 2006.
It was Dec. 13 and he was going to be on the media promoted his newest book about the holidays called "Don't get scrooged" although his health and wellbeing was great, he died of a pulmonary embolism, which is a blood clot that went to the lungs. What a sad event, how much more meaningful his precious words were. He lived just 45 years and produced almost that many books in his short well lived life. May we all have the privilage to treasure ourselves as he ended his tapes with those words.
He will surely be missed, but the good news is that his life was well lived and we can benefit from his work for as long as we live. Richard GOD bless you, may you say a prayer to help heal the world of the hate and misfortune. May you rest in peace in heaven under the glory of our loving creator.
It's an easy no sweat read and a wonderful compendium to have nearby when we become perplexed with our own behaviour and those around us. A valuable guide-book to acheiveing an expanding our treasure of living a happy loving life in relationship with others.
My recap of the book would be: don't always try to be right and criticize others, think of people/situations to love/appreciate, and realize that most stresses are really not worth the stress when you look at the big picture. You will feel better in general when you practice these habits.
What I take from this book is basically what I take from any self-help book, just the pieces that I believe in/agree with. Self-help books are just that, you helping yourself. If you let the ideas that will help you affect you positively, then it will, regardless of the book. In the end, your interpretation of the books are your ideas, and you ultimately are the only one who affects you. Choose to be happy (over being stubborn, for example), and you will be. I used to think it's a fluff, until I try it and I am happy, then it became truth. Anyway, whatever floats your boat :)
