Are you someone who is constantly worrying about what could happen or what has happened? Someone whose life is brought down by this behavior you don’t know to correct?
At least, before reading this excellent book “How to Stop Worrying and Start Living” by Dale Carnegie.
In his book the author has helped millions of people how to break the worry habit forever and how to adopt new attitudes that bring happiness in their lives. Little is known about the topic of worrying and it is true that this alter the lives of many people unnecessarily.
Dale Carnegie was teaching public speaking classes of adults in the evening when he realized that another major problem his students had was worry.
He decided then to go to the library at Fifth Avenue and Forty Second street to discover that only 22 books existed under the category WORRY. At the same time, he discovered that 189 books existed under the category WORMS…
** Almost nine times as many books about worms as about worry! Astounding, isn’t it? Since worry is one of the biggest problems facing mankind, you would think, wouldn’t you, that every high school and college in the land would give a course on “How to Stop Worrying”? Yet, if there is even one course on that subject in any college in the land, I have never heard of it.

The lack of books on that topic is the reason the author decided to write its own.
