3.0 out of 5 stars Empath is an Introvert but with a Spiritual Slant, 27 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Become the Most Important Person in the Room: Your 30-Day Plan for Empath Empowerment (Paperback)
Unsure about this book as an empath comes across in my view as someone who is an introvert; the same issues highlighted. Overall, a book taking only a slightly different slant on that of the introvert. It is a tad expensive including the Kindle version. Never keen on books that purport to provide a long-term plan and I have to admit I lost interest part way through. At the same time, never one to give up on a book, I tried flicking to specific chapters but again lost interest each time. I believe a lot of us could extract parts from the book and link them to ourselves. Sometimes it is nice to find a reason for feeling misunderstood; in other words finding someone or something that provides empathy when on a simpler note we are probably in the wrong place or with the wrong group of people. Empath is not a word widely used or known, although the word empathy is in common use. The book hovers around links to the spiritual and this was why I bought the book as part of a piece of research. Just because I am not keen does not mean it is not well written and I can imagine it would suit many people of a more touchy feely nature. To my mind a more interesting, thought provoking and far cheaper yet solid read is Quiet: The power of introverts in a world that can't stop talking.
