No idea where I acquired this one... but it's now registered and ready to do some travelling. Hopefully it will be found and enjoyed by a new reader!

From Publishers Weekly...

'An easy-to-read collection of short essays meant to uplift and inspire soccer moms everywhere, this addition to the Don't Sweat the Small Stuff series offers nothing more nor less than its predecessors. Carlson (whose husband, Richard, wrote the original book) joined him in writing Don't Sweat the Small Stuff in Love. This time, she relates many first-person stories from her own life and those of her friends in a just-between-us-girls tone that's based in part on gender stereotypes (e.g., "our gift of female intuition"; "our sensitive natures"). Her chatty pep talks cover such topics as comparing oneself to media images, overextending oneself, preventing and coping with stress and learning to say "no." Carlson advises women to appreciate their children's "fleeting" childhoods, to speak and listen from a place of love, to swallow angry words and gossip, to take time for themselves, to nurture friendships with other women and to keep tabs on their financial position and marketability in case they lose their spouse through death or divorce. Unfortunately, she misses a few good opportunities to offer important information, as in her breezy entries on PMS and mammograms. Aimed at people whose problems are mostly "small stuff," this small tome offers little to offend and much to calm and comfort.'

7 out of 10

Some great practical advice contained in this little book - how I wish it had been available 20 years ago.
Loved Chapter 7 - Clarify With the Question: "are you asking for my opinion, or should I just listen?" Could have used that approach so many times in the past and it would have saved a lot of angst.
Chapter 40 - Stop Swimming Upstream - suggesting you consider adjusting your attitude. 'The next time you feel like you're swimming upstream, consider making some changes that put you in the ebb of a gentler direction.' Sound advice - sometimes seeing it in print confirms the wisdom of the need to sometimes do an about face.
