Hmm, the first few chapters are really interesting and they do make you look at your shyness/anxious/introverted self in a more positive light. The inner child stuff and some of the spiritual mumbo jumbo made me roll my eyes a bit but on the whole a very helpful book. 👍

"Vocation" Is Not "Vacation" Misspelled

This book was “assigned reading” by my therapist (it‘s like she knows me!). I feel a little bad that I didn‘t get much out of it though. I scored really high on the HSP self-test at the beginning and was excited to read about misfits like me, but the only chapter I could really relate to was the one about thriving at work. I also had a real problem with her hokey garbage solutions. (e.g. Don‘t take life-saving meds! Just smile more and drink tea!)

MidnightBookGirl Umm, tea is great, but so is medicine. 10mo
hgrimes @MidnightBookGirl For sure! Tea is great for things that don‘t require medication. 10mo

I love how the names of the animals represent their emotional state. Fragility is fragile and Rudy is rude.

This book is about fragility the hippo. She got hurt feelings at everything and one day she met Rudy the elephant. Rudy was very rude but eventually fragility hurt his feelings. He cried and cried until fragility soothed his tears away and They both realized that what they thought was bad wasn‘t always bad.

There are some good insights here, but you have to wade through a lot of crap, pandering, and excuse-making to find them. Basically, the author seems to think that being highly sensitive is somehow better and therefore everyone must adapt to treating the “HSP” with kid gloves at all times. I am highly sensitive, and several of my children are as well, and this is not usually practical or helpful. Review continued in comments.

Krisjericho The insights into why people are the way they are are good, and the basics of understanding another kind of person are helpful. You just have to be able to sift them out. 1y
merelybookish I'm pretty sure my youngest HSP and it's hard! He has a hard time with friends But based on your review, I don't think I'll read this book. 😉 1y

An eye-opening journey started for me recently after discovering about this book on a podcast and then reading it. Books and an intentionally-directed reading life can be life-changing. I really need to read this again and again. Dr. Aaron, herself, my colleague, is also a HSP. I truly thank and appreciate her.
