FROM THE PUBLISHER
Do you keep yourself awake at night trying to anticipate your children's needs, or strategizing how to care for your aging parents? Does your career have you thinking and rethinking the choices you've made, and the ones you suspect you'll be faced with in the future? Do you suffer from negative thoughts about your body and your health? Do you have trouble getting over losses and setbacks? If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, you may be an overthinker. And research shows you're not alone -- an increasing number of women are falling victim to this cycle, hindering their ability to lead a satisfying life. In this revolutionary book, renowned psychologist Dr. Susan Nolen-Hoeksema explains why so many women are overthinkers and provides concrete strategies that can be used to escape these negative thoughts, move to higher ground, and avoid future traps.

Well written and easy to read. Although several chapters focus on women and overthinking, there are many chapters that would be beneficial to men as well.

From Publishers Weekly
Practically everyone agonizes over decisions or situations from time to time, but overthinkers carry analysis and introspection to unhealthy extremes, "getting caught in torrents of negative thoughts and emotions,"according to this book. Even minor events can trigger a chain of second-guessing in which negative emotions are "amplified instead of managed." Kneading damaging thoughts like dough, overthinkers fall victim to a "yeast effect" that causes negativity to grow and take control of their lives, distort their perspectives and damage relationships, careers and emotional (and perhaps physical) health. Nolen-Hoeksema, a University of Michigan psychology professor and author of five professional books, explores why people overthink, contends and explains why too much thinking is predominantly a womans disease and prescribes a three-step program to overcome overthinking. Citing many studies (including her own) and occasionally zooming in on particular cases, she offers no-nonsense, reasoned and easy-to-understand advice and strategies, as well as a quiz to help readers recognize their own patterns of overthought.
