What a fantastic handbook! If you work eight, 10 or even 15 hours a day, feel unappreciated, stressed-out and generally ground down by the nine to five rat-race, then you need Don't Sweat the Small Stuff at Work
. It's packed from cover to cover with superb stress-busting advice, and it's also a fascinating insight into the challenges and traumas of everyday working life. Written by Dr Richard Carlson, who has a series of similar works to his name, Don't Sweat the Small Stuff at Work
contains one hundred bite-size chapters with titles such as Eliminate the Rat Race Mentality, Don't Dramatize Deadlines, Stop Anticipating Tiredness, Don't Sweat the Demanding Boss, Give up Your Fear of Speaking to Groups and Learn to Delegate.
Dr Carlson's advice is witty as well as informative, and he never slips into the platitudes or home-spun philosophy that similar works fall prey to. In fewer than 300 small pages, he tells you how to transform your negative outlook on work into a positive and fulfilling one. Commuting can become a breeze, heavy workloads an opportunity to gain success, and the daily dilemmas of office life can turn into new forms of motivation. Don't Sweat the Small Stuff at Work is a dynamic, solution-based handbook, and it's also a delightfully portable paperback, perfect for your handbag or briefcase. Read and be relieved!- -Lucas LoBlack
