Product Description

Review

“The question of whether Nolen-Hoeksema is onto something was slam-dunked by the ‘I know exactly what she means’ reactions of women who caught sight of the title.” ―"The Washington Post" “A must read for any woman who has ever felt stuck in her life, and any man who has been confused by why the women they love get so ‘caught up thinking’ they can’t enjoy life. Nolen-Hoeksema offers practical methods to self-diagnose and pathways toward greater emotional freedom.” ―William S. Pollack, Ph.D., author of Real Boys, Assistant Clinical Professor, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard University

This book is excellent. It has enabled me to change my life. I have spent many years obsessing over all kinds of things - and I did not even realise I was doing it, it was so natural to me. The author shows how we get into these patterns of thinking where the same old stuff goes round and round in our heads and she suggests ways of getting out of it. Now I realise when I am doing it and I use one of her suggestions to feel happier. I have bought several copies for friends who think like I do and I highly recommend it to every woman as we all do it.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Nolen-Hoeksema has addressed an issue which will resonate with many women in our Western society. There is a great deal of sound advice in the book but I fear that many women will be put off reading this book through its clumsy style. When someone has a passion for a subject they are often so engrossed that they cannot precis their writing objectively and this is what has happened here. An editor should have condensed the book into a third its size. The word, 'overthinking,' is repeated so many times that it becomes tedious and irritating. The style of writing is poor, too wordy and needs tightening up. The vocabulary is limited, for example the use of the word, 'muck,' is uncomfortable. I would recommend women who are attracted to the theme of the book to purchase the book and scan through it to select the explanations of what overthinking is and how it can be remedied. I have highlighted the parts of the book which are excellent and have actually helped me and I shall return to them in the future.

Format: Paperback
I have always thought of myself as a worrier and overthinker. If there is nothing to worry about I worry about this too! I purchased the book about a month ago and it has made a big difference to my life. I have begun to take each day as it comes and if a problem arises I think about it but do not overthink and make the problem ten times bigger by overthinking. The book is full of real peoples personal experiences which is very interesting. From reading the book you can see how easy it is to have a problem and blow it all out of proportion with various thoughts that and fears that really are ridiculous and unrealistic. No person will ever live problem free without worry but this book puts everything into perspective and allows you to think before you overthink! I would highly recommend it.

The sort of person who buys this book is always going to think 'but I LIKE thinking - it makes me the intelligent person that I am!' I'm about 3/4 of the way in but already I realise that it's not me overthinking that causes the problem, it's the overthinking in a negative way - and this book shows you practical methods to STOP!!! Have told my mother, my sister and my best friend about it so far...

Thought this would help me. As I tend to think too much about things. Not as thinking is a bad thing! Book is made up of several testimonies. Some are better than others. I could extract meaning from some. But others were a bit "so what?". But pleased I read it. The best stories DID give some insight.

Like myself!

It goes with the territory: we're care-givers; so we worry about others - but this can spill over and become destructive.....

I read this book a couple of years ago and it has changed my outlook. I suppose I can stop myself now, whereas before I would just ruminate till the cows came home.
I also got 'Stop Worrying and Start Living' a year later and that's permanently on the bedside table.

I think the most important thing this book did for me, was it showed me that it was safe to 'let go' and letting go wont mean you're an air-head or that people will
challenge you. I suppose it goes some way to kind of explain how to achieve inner peace and thereby heal??

I loved the title, and remember when I read it on the train, loads of women were staring at it.

I couldn't read more than a third of this book, as it just left me cold. I got the impression that a woman is only entitled to feel bad if they have to juggle kids, husband and career. I was disappointed because it was recommended by my counsellor. I'm sure there must be many more suitable books out there for me.
