Don't bother

I've read a few books on psychology, behaviour and relationships in the past and I have a degree in Psychology. I've heard good things about Don't Sweat the Small Stuff off tv but no recommendations from people who've bought it (now I know why!). It was in the Audible Sale and I thought I'd give it a go. I'm quite a stressed person and thought this might teach me some techniques to manage my stress. I was looking forward to it as other reviews made out it was life changing. It's narrated by the author and he does an ok job, very American upbeat style but then he is an American and it's a self help book so no surprises there. The book is only 4 hours so you're done with it pretty quickly that is either a positive or a negative depending on how you look at it ;) Some of the strategies were interesting but nothing ground breaking and you've probably already thought of most of them, in essence the techniques were just repeated ways of driving home the message of "relax and be grateful for what you've got". You'd probably get more use out of going to a yoga class or getting a massage so don't bother downloading it as it hardy has an impact at all and certainly isn't life changing. If you want an interesting book on behaviour and relationships which really will change your perspective then read 'Why Men Don't Listen and Women Can't Read Maps" by Allan and Barbara Pease (sadly not available on Audible).
