Really bland, basic, cookie-cutter, pseudoscience book. Don't waste your time on a teeny book whose info is all available for free on Google.

Easy read

She really validated everything I was experiencing. This was a very helpful book that many will relate to. I recommend this book!

Good tips, particularly with respect to managing your emotions. However, the amount of knowledge didn't justify the price tag at $25.00 for the book. This is an 80-90 page book and can be read in an hour. It is good to recognize that you're an HSP, and techniques to help you manage your emotions during times of stress. That's pretty much the gist of the book.

Amazing read

For someone who hasn't already thought through everything in the book, this might be helpful. It's mostly common sense advice for mental health, really. But the thing I realized, of course, was that as an HSP, these strategies are required, not optional. And it made me feel better to know I'm not alone.

Very brief and generalized read

I found that this book was too general. It was such a short read that I got the gist of what it is like to be highly sensitive but I didn’t feel like I got enough insight on some of the areas that were discussed in the introduction. The strategies were common knowledge for the most part and were nothing to be in awe of.

Very good read

The book gives you various tools on how to manage your highly sensitive personality. Very useful, would recommend for anyone that has trouble with their sensitivity and is looking for solution.

while surely Dyer was good intentioned, I found too much negative language when referring to HSPs. Maybe that’s my sensitivity talking but it was kind of a hard read and while i learned some things, i wouldn’t say it was enjoyable. left me feeling like i had to change, to be honest.

Interesting read.

A quick and easy read. Interesting insights and strategies. A bit more depth would have been interesting. More of the psychological background could have been included.

So easy to understand

This book gave me some great coping mechanisms for my anxiety and depression. Exercises that you can do on the spot without props of any kind. It’s easy to understand and easy to follow.

Easy read

Teaches some idea on how to cope with some unwanted situation especially for highly sensitive people as define in this book as well as for people who knows someone that is sensitive. Its a good beginner book to start if you’re into EQ.
