If you're a highly sensitive person (HSP), you're in good company. HSPs make up some 20 percent of the population, individuals like you who both enjoy and wrestle with a finely tuned nervous system. You often sense things that others ignore such as strong smells, bright lights, and the crush of crowds. Even the presence of strangers in your immediate vicinity can cause you considerable distraction. You already know that this condition can be a gift, but until you learn to master your sensitive nervous system, you might be operating in a constant state of overstimulation.
As an HSP, the most important thing you can learn is how to manage your increased sensitivity to both physical and emotional stimulation. This accessible, practical guide contains strategies to help you master this critical skill. Build your coping skills by exploring the books engaging exercises. Then, keep the book by your side, a constant companion as you make your way through your vibrant and highly stimulating world.

Some good, some not so good

Part of the book was helpful. Reassuring to be reminded to respect self, needs and limits as well as unique skills and personality. But I got the feeling that the recommendations for how to behave could put some individuals in the firing line of bullies at school or in the workplace, or anywhere really. It's important to work within own limits but also important to not be a doormat. The book fidn't give a way of navigating that fine line. Other parts of the book were just disappointing. I thought the author overstepped his knowledge when talking about topics such as medicine and diet, offering dubious supportive evidence at best.
