Review: Don't Sweat the Small Stuff... and it's all small stuff (Don't Sweat the Small Stuff)

User Review  - Karleen St.Germain - Goodreads

I am still reading this book because it is not the kind of thing you sit down and run through to the back cover. You set it on the coffee table and grab a thought now and then much like the daily devotion thing. It is full of spot on wisdom that you wish all your friends knew. Read full review
