Publisher's Summary

Are you highly sensitive?

This book will help you understand the dynamics of emotion and dominate feelings, making them cooperate in your service. We must not repress, but know that we are made wonderfully.

Features:

Since children, the highly sensitive are very intuitive, generous and show a tendency to perfectionism present even in adulthood, so they often have high expectations about what they do.

The instinct of protection for the weakest, the anger towards injustices together with the profound connection with emotions, one's own and those of others, make the highly sensitive an excellent observer of the world, able to immediately perceive situations of discomfort and give to the another what he needs.

"Highly Sensitive People generally live life so differently than most people around them that they often carry a sense of diversity, strangeness, and misunderstanding that can cause a lot of suffering and a sense of marginalization," explains Dr. Elena Lupo, Psychologist, and Psychotherapist with Biosystemic specialization with clinical activity in Bologna.

Excellent sensitivity, in many cases, is also leather! Through psychosomatic diseases, the epidermis, which distinguishes the thin border between us and others, becomes the channel in which stress, sense of danger, and anxiety are manifested.

This guide will help you to discover and enhance certain aspects that only highly sensitive people can perceive.

A great mental shift

Insightfull , for anyone struggling to connect with others and feel they don't belong. Anyone with Asperger's , this might change your perspective. The narrator can cause some over stimulation, just dile down the speed and volume of his voice.

Life Saving Tune!

This book saved my life! I was given it to listen by my counselor who said I was one of the most sensitive people she's ever met. I am thankful for the insight and helpful techniques that make you feel less chaotic and more intune with yourself. If you're unsure about buying this book, I promise it is worth your time and money.

Am I reading this book or Aaron's book.

you might as well read Aaron's book. from Aristotle's quotes to the fire alarm anecdote, it reminds you of some else's work.

Perfect guidebook

I liked this book! You probably will take away at least three very helpful suggestions that will help you, not only survive, but thrive in this very overstimulating world. Good luck.

Better Tune!!

I have already recommended this book to several people who are either highly sensitive themselves or who live with another person who is. There are so many gems of wisdom which are not only practical, but can be easily applied to help one achieve greater empowerment through their sensitive nature.

Very nice tune!!

This book has very nice tips for HSPs. Though I didn't like the fact that the writer completely drops his scientific attitude towards the end of the book and starts relating everything to God. Such a book should aim a broader audience and be more neutral about "God-related" issues.

Great Ideas

This is a really really great book and has a lot of clear things you can do to make life easier for yourself and to empower you. Many of these things i have already done and have learned the hard way over time but actually it really affirms what i have been doing and builds on it.

Horrific narration.

I tried twice to listen to this as reviews were good!!! A 4.9!!!!
How did that happen? I'm thinking people have been paid to review this!
It was impossible, not just the
US accent but the delivery and content were reminiscent of a American 1950s dodgy commercial.
Save yourself a credit and your sensitive sanity and listen to a book that will give you more perspective like the amazing 'Primate Changed which I've just finished.

Informative

Very informative audiobook, full of explanations and clarifications. Not a lot of practical exercises unfortunately just some generic advice on the last chapters. Would have appreciated to find more. Despite this, the book is perfect and recommended for those who want to start with a good knowledge and understanding of the subject.

Good, very insightful...

Some technical issues where the sound dropped out and narration speed wouldn’t set correctly, I had to switch between my Mac and iPhone to overcome the various issues.

Good but too long

Points and information given by the author are very good and useful, however each chapter has a lot of repitition. The whole point could have fit into 1h otherwise

This book is so insightful and explains the thinki

A few subjects are somewhat redundant and I question the non-touchy will"get" this book. This book contains a few hints, apparatuses and procedures on the best way to effectively create affect ability and use in regular day to day existence.
