I like listening to this book at the start and end of my day on my commute. It has great suggestions for happy living and I found myself being happier and more stress free after listening to it. Don't expect any mind blowing revelations, but it is a good reminder of what really matters.
I found this book very helpful for my everyday living. It is simple and to the point psychology. I listen to it at work and whenever I feel stressed. What I like best about this one, is that it is read by the author himself, and he is a very very clear speaker and has soothing tone to his voice. I recommend this to anyone who wants to hear a few simple tips to help cope with life. I only wish I could put to practice at least 25% of what Dr. Richardson suggests.

Techniques and habits discussed in the book in combination with stories to illustrate the application of the techniques have great application in today's society. Many of us are very stressed over what is happening in our lives and seem to be overwhelming at the time--and at that time, it probably is. Life is filled with many, many instances/occurrences which cause us to get stressed, be it related to work, family, money, really anything. R. Carlson discusses techniques to change perspective. In November 2005, there was a 3-day period I was continually reflecting over a great monetary loss. I had not slept much over that period. Some time was spent during the 3rd day listening to 'Don't Sweat the Small Stuff...,' I heard just one technique and in a moment my perspective changed; instantly, the pressure I felt in my chest from the stress caused by my loss vanished and I felt great peace.
Life my not be easy, but, we don't need to be stressed out over everything.
Great listen/read, well worth the investment.
