Amazon Review

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.

Format: Paperback
Unlike most lifestyle works 'Don't Sweat The Small Stuff at Work' can be read in soundbites in spare minutes. Every soundbite is a nugget; even after dipping in for only a few minutes the reader is left feeling that they will change something about their life at work.
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.

I bought this book after someone recommended his work to me. I run a company which means having to deal with many different clients at anyone time, most of which have no concept of how work is created and turned around. Because of this and the fact that we had recently undergone a restructure, the pressure and the number of clients had increased.

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!

When I first bought this book (a few years ago)I read it cover to cover because each tip is so interesting, and so relevant, to anyone who struggles with all the stresses of the workplace. Since then it's resided in the bathroom. Various people dip into it's short chapters and emerge talking about them. It provides you with real, common sense, pragmatic approaches to the many situations we find ourselves in. It has no doubt contributed to my vastly-reduced work stress and a much-improved work/life balance. I've bought it for others too. Buy it today, and take note of the tips, they really work. And it's a really interesting read too!

Excellent book for advise. Some of it is pretty simple but not something we think of ourselves when we are 'under it.
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

After becoming overloaded at work, and needing to take a break from it all, I looked into reading more about managing stress management and about preventing it more than anything.

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.

Old book, with a obvious American slant but I've found this to be very handy for picking up great techniques of surviving work in an office. Many relevant chapters which are short and relevant.
