This is an excellent book that could change the readers' behavior for the better.

The history of the book itself reveals how the author is ever ready to learn from the day-to-day happenings of life. He got the idea of the title 'Don't sweat the Small Stuff' from Dr. Wayne W. Dyer in the course of business correspondence; and he has developed it as a valuable book for all.

There are one hundred maxims in the book, all of which deserve serious consideration. For the benefit of my readers, I shall list ten of them that belong to the first class.

1. Don't sweat the small stuff.
2. Let go the idea that gentle, relaxed people can't be super achievers.
3. Don't interrupt others or finish their sentences.
4. Learn to live in the present moment.
5. Become a better listener.
6. Choose your battles wisely.
7. Remember that everything has God's fingerprints on it.
8. Practice ignoring your negative thoughts.
9. Take up Yoga.
10.Mind your own business.

This book would certainly help anybody to gain a more realistic and relaxed attitude toward life in general.
