Authentic and implementable tips for staying away from worry!
This was my second self-help book by Dale Carnegie. The way he explains techniques with honest reviews is remarkable. Every person suffering from mental illness and stress related issues should read this book.
Wow this book is timeless!
Even though this book was written in 1948 it is a masterpiece that is still applicable today.
Previous to reading this, hearing the name Dale Carnegie conjured up ideas of some kind of religious cult leader with classes still available today. I WAS VERY WRONG.
This book reveals Dale Carnegie as a humble teacher who interviewed thousands of people and beautifully shared these people's experiences to create an amazing manual regarding worrying which is still applicable today. I'm sad that I've now finished the book as I was reading it before bed and when I woke up :)
I was impressed with Dale's way of presenting the book like a friendly conversation and I was amused by the
The language and unique word choices of the 1940's.
It especially cracked me up that people's exact addresses were used to validate the reference.
It was also amazing just how many very famous people were featured in this book such as Rockefeller.
Being a Psychiatric Nurse I didn't agree with everything
But of course some things have evolved over the past 66 years :)
For example the idea of working or keeping busy after a tragedy or death- we now know that not addressing grief has deep and damaging affects and will eventually come out to be addressed and healed often creating crisis if ignored.
I highly recommend this book, it is easy to read, entertaining and could change your life.
