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 --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From handling deadlines and daring to be happy (challenging many hard work doctrines) to developing our confidence to develop a human way of managing rather than continuing the accepted rat race approach this covers a wide range os issues. I particularly liked the doctrine of spending ten minutes each day doing absolutely nothing - this is now my most productive time.
Developed from his initial 'Don't sweat the small stuff' aimed at home life, Richard Carlson has become a household name to millions who now dare to achieve more but with less stress; both in their personal and work lives. I strongly recommend the series of books if you want to take back control of your life.
This book helps you restructure your day and more importantly your thinking towards clients and other collegues. This book didn't get the work done for me (unfortunately) but it did help me work more productively, give me great ideas on how to deal with clients and other members of staff and helped to not let the little things cause me stress and more often than not, anger!
I read it in one sitting and refer back to it now and again.
It has really helped me avoid some major gaffs and I do think a lot more cleverer in situations at work now.
The workplace is still stressful but I now feel I can prevent myself having that nervous breakdown as I have tips on avoiding it in the first place.
Thank you Richard Carlson
This book popped up after a quick search and it sounded manageable for my then fragile brain.
It's perfect for a short (or long) commute. I managed to read about 2 to 3 chapters in two train stops which is an easily digestible amount for the day - a few ideas to keep in mind and possibly try out. The book is really set up nicely. 100 chapters, taking you through all of these little and large influencers of stress.
From saying no and breathing deeply, to improving relationships; all of these chapters cover various small things which all add up to help reduce stress. Each chapter covers the theory, and then there is an example. The examples actually make this book, they show that real people use these methods to improve their lives.
Highly recommended reading if you're feeling overloaded and stressed. And it only takes a few minutes per day to make the most of it.

The kindle book is advertised as 'Don't Sweat the Small Stuff at Work' but you actually get 'Don't Sweat the Small Stuff Workbook' which is a different book.Published on 17 Feb. 2014 by Miss B
