Richard Carlson


About the Author

During his life, RICHARD CARLSON, Ph.D, was considered one of the foremost experts in happiness and stress reduction in the United States and around the world, and was a frequent guest on such shows as Oprah, The Today Show, The View, CNN, Fox, PBS, and over 2000 other shows. Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff continued to be a publishing phenomenon, with over 20 titles in the series, two of which were co-authored with his beloved wife, Kris. He died of a pulmonary embolism in December 2006, at the age of forty-five.

The words “don’t sweat the small stuff” became a part of American culture thanks to Carlson’s book of the same name, which became a runaway bestseller and made publishing history as the #1 bestselling book in the United States for two consecutive years.

Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff spent over 100 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and is still considered one of the fastest selling books of all time. It has sold over 15 million copies worldwide.
