Reviews - What do customers think about Don't Sweat the Small Stuff with Your Family: Simple Ways to Keep Daily Responsibilities and Household Chaos From Taking Over Your Life (Don't Sweat the Small Stuff Series)?
Helpful, but not AS helpful as the first... Apr 27, 2008
This book was helpful, but not nearly as helpful as Elaine St. James' "Simplify Your Life." I'd recommend starting there, and tackling the peculiarities of life with children -after- you've tried a few of Elaine's suggestions. Elaine has a way of approaching the big picture, finding the chinks, and carving off large chunks of unneeded stress.
This book has more psychological, feel-your-way advice, while "Simplify Your Life" gives concrete, single steps that almost anyone can implement, age not a factor.
Short and Superb! Mar 19, 2007
This book has very short chapters. What this does is allows you to quickly get a thought-provoking and helpful "shot in the arm" almost anywhere. I find it a great book to keep in the car for reading during commutes when I am a passenger or even if stuck in traffic. Sure, some of the stuff is common sense but the way Carlson puts it - it really makes you think and makes it real. Definitely one to read and pass on to someone else.
You've got to be kidding! Sep 2, 2006
I agree with Robb Dunn's review above and can't believe people are so ga-ga over this author. I've read Don't Sweat The Small Stuff--and It's All Small Stuff, and I'm almost done with the Family book. In both cases you could almost skip the text and just read the chapter headings. I'm finding only one or two chapters in the entire book that are telling me something that isn't simple common sense. And in these chapters he gets to the point in the first few sentences and then just babbles on. Not worth the read.
A GOOD book, Not Earth shattering. Jul 26, 2001
I have read two of Carlson's "Don't sweat the small stuff" series books. This one was better than "Don't sweat the small stuff, Just make money". This book has suggestions on how to relate to problems and annoyances in a family environment and is remindful of how important family should be to us. There was little I took from this book that would greatly change my life, but it was good reading and has a few good suggestions in dealing with day to day family issues.
Short and Sweet Feb 4, 2000
It's not rocket science - getting along with your family - but isn't it astounding how many people can't get along at home on a regular basis? Even if you're fortunate to have nearly perfect family relations, you'll find yourself in at least one situation in this little book.
Carlson makes his points simply and in a straightforward manner which almost hits you in the head with: "OF COURSE! THIS MAKES SENSE! WHY HAVEN'T I DONE THIS BEFORE? "
You'll enjoy the suggestions and practicing the ways to get along better with everyone who means anything to you in life (and even those you don't care so much about).
Judge this book by its cover ~ it's filled with often overlooked words of wisdom!
