Publisher's Summary

Do you sometimes feel as if you're just going through the motions in life? Are you good at looking and acting as if you're fine, but secretly feel lonely and disconnected? If so, you are not alone. The world is full of people who have an innate sense that something is wrong with them - who feel they live on the outside looking in, but have no explanation for this feeling and no way to put it into words.
If you are one of these people, you may fear that you are not connected enough to your spouse, or that you don't feel pleasure or love as profoundly as others do. You may drink too much, or eat too much, or risk too much, in an attempt to feel something good.
Running on Empty will give you clear strategies for how to heal, and offers a special chapter for mental-health professionals. In the world of human suffering, this book is an emotional smart bomb meant to eradicate the effects of an invisible enemy.

I got about half way through this book and simply couldn't bare to continue with it. The case studies were all very similar and the book became highly repetitive. Most of the stories seemed to involve extremely privaliged and successful people with rather pathetic, first world issues. There goes a few hours of my life I will never get back.

frustrated with lack of chapters

Would you try another book written by Jonice Webb, PhD and Christine Musello, PsyD or narrated by Karen White?

No, the book is divided into chapters for very good reasons. I wanted to listen to specific chapters, and not all of them, but I was forced to by the endless run-on format. Insert Chapters!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Running on Empty?

Part 2 & Part 3: filling the tank are very good.

Do you think Running on Empty needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?


Any additional comments?

Why doesn't Audible require audible publishers to have chapter markers? The book is written in chapters to divide chunks of information. Also, re-listening to a part of the book would be so easy in comparison to holding the fast forward button - which is a ridiculous way to search for something in particular!
