The Book Review

Reading Time: 7 minutes

Nobody likes being in dark places. We try to avoid them and run whenever they try to creep up on us but eventually, they catch up. No amount of hiding can save us then. It takes a special kind of courage to step up and come face to face with the monsters. Grab a book and let’s do this!

I know 2020 has been a tough year for a lot of us. So much has happened that it’s hard to wrap our heads around everything. Regardless, we’re still here even if most of us are barely holding on.

…Barely holding on was me a few weeks ago. I felt like I was going insane. And that’s when looking over my bookshelf as my heart felt like it was in actual physical pain, Dale Carnegie reached out once again and got me out of my funk! Books save lives!!

my inspiration

Often when I write or post about anything to do with books, I always express my love for oldies. By this, I mean books that were written in the early or mid-1900s. They feel authentic and I’m always amazed at how the advice given in the early 1900s is still applicable now in 2020.

How to stop worrying and start living is one of my favorites. 

It’s a wise book written in seven parts that is 1000% recommended to everyone. Why? Because a lot of us walking around going about our lives, are carrying a lot of pain, baggage, doubt, disappointments, anxiety, and worry.

books and books and oh yeah…more books

This book takes you through the basic principles of worry; how to analyze it, how to break it down, before it breaks you, and the best part about the book, is that it shares its secret on how to cultivate a mental attitude that will help you create your peace and happiness.

Now, this sounds very basic scheming through the topics but, there’s a unique way Dale explains it to you. He is a teacher and taking on that role in his writing brings his teachings to life. Dale also gets to back up the topics covered with testimonials from ordinary people he has interacted with as a teacher or psychiatrist, and also his interaction with world-class leaders. By putting this into play, he gets to humanize most of his topics.

I also like the fact that towards the end of the book, he highlights people’s stories and how in their own unique way, conquered their fears. 

So would I recommend this book? Absolutely!! And from my opening statement, you can tell why. In a world full of so much uncertainty, we need to be prepared to face them and overcome them. I believe that this book can offer guidance. If you’re lucky enough to read it, share what you have learned with people close to you and regularly go back to it to help guide you.

Remember that this kind of literature only helps when you put whatever you’ve learned into practice. In your own way, apply these principles in your day to day. Help teach them and also be patient with you while at it. Actual change takes time to really grow its roots. Don’t be too excited by the quick fix illusion the world we live in right now tries so much to advocate for.

Marykenya, therefore, rates this book at 4.5/5!!
