"Don't Sweat the Small Stuff" by Richard Carlson and Kristine Carlson

The cover of this book says it was a bestselling book of the year at one time. After opening it up and glancing through it, it's not hard to see why.

The purpose of the book is to get you to look at things, common situations we all come across every day, like being criticized or being given more work than you can possibly finish, and see them a little differently. Believe it or not, it delivers- and in just a page or two at a time if you can believe that! That's because the wisdom is definitely there, on every page, and it just plain makes sense. Many times I've read a chapter or two and thought, "Why didn't I think of that before?".

The other good thing about this tiny book is that you could either sit down and read it cover-to-cover, or just pick it up once in awhile and pick a random chapter to read. Either way, the mini-chapters are sure to quickly leave most readers wondering why they make such a big deal out of the things they do. Other short self-help books I like include "Finding Happiness in a Frustrating World".
