    One thing annoyed me greatly. Whenever the author is introducing a woman in one of her examples, she always describes them as a "plucky blonde with sparkling blue eyes." I couldn't help but be distracted by how tacky and stereotypical this comes off. It really turned me off to the book.

  2. says:

    I don't know why it is titled : "Women who think too much". I think the book is relevant to both men and women.
    I am really glad to have read this book.. it doesn't really answer all questions, but it gives good advises to beat overthinking..
    I am sure, I shall read it again some time soon.

    The best thing about it is mainly the case studies, and life scenarios. It makes ideas very clear, as if I am living each situation exactly. Most probably the reactions mentioned would be exactly my reaction if I am in that place.

  3. says:

    Really good book. I read it in the library cuz it caught my eye because lately I have been over thinking my relationship with my bf. And it was very helpful. Made me feel better and I actually was taking a walk to try and clear my mind and ended up at the bookstore. So what she says about doing something for urself helps u not over think so much is so true. Not being so clingy giving ur partner space and not always trying to fix ur relationship or over analyzing every little thing he does. I recommend this book to anyone who is overt honking and over analyzing their relationships

    I picked this mostly as a procrastination short nonfiction read and didn't expect to find it this interesting. I am pretty prone to overthinking so I could relate to many of the examples and some of the strategies I already use and looking forward to having more to fall back on. It's probably not a life changing book for me, but it was informative and really good to listen to.

  5. says:

    This book was very negative and repetitive. The author provided plenty of negative thinking anecdotes from "people who think too much". That was 99% of the book. She spent very little time giving you actual advice about what to do if you are thinking a lot. This book should have been called, "Examples of negative thinking and I won't tell you how to fix it". This book made me feel worse. A lot of her examples were horrible situations that happened to people. Things that us humans don't want to dwell on. Her watery advice was pretty much along the lines of "if you find yourself thinking negatively, just stop it". How is this any different than, "Pick yourself off your bootstraps!". Not a useful or enlightening book. It sent me into further negative thinking. I don't understand why this book has high reviews. I haven't read a book this bad in a long time. No wonder it was $5 in some discount store.

    Helpful in understanding whether you think too much and how to cope with that. Most women I know tend to have this issue and I think it's important to recognize and acknowledge the problem, while trying to keep it under control.

    Some of the case studies in the book really annoyed me; as another reviewer said, is it necessary for us to know the eye and hair color of all of the women discussed? No.

    That said, I did appreciate the straightforward manner that Nolen-Hoeksema approaches the over thinking problem and practical tips for managing it. As a chronic ruminator, it was helpful to me to realize that I am not solving problems by thinking about them all the time; instead I am making them worse. Obviously not all of her tips for managing negative thoughts will work for everyone but I think some deserve attention and implementation.

    Overall, I think this book is a worthy read if you have a tendency to over think.

    In the past, I've been told that I think too much and this was never meant as a compliment, so I resisted this book based on the title. It was recommended in another book I'd read, so I checked it out of the library. The sort of thinking the author is writing about here isn't deep thinking about a topic or even worrying. She's talking about being stuck in a negative thought habit about things that have happened which leads to sadness, anxiety, and depression.

    I did more of a heavy skim than a word-by-word reading (hence not giving a star rating), but I did write down several long passages to reflect upon.

    Near the end of the book, Nolen-Hoeksema makes the case for the need for quiet alone time to reconnect with ourselves and sort out our own values. This isn't just good for us as individuals or for our relationships, but such practice has far-reaching implications. She writes,

    "We cannot, as a society, choose leaders who represent our best values if we do not, as individuals, spend the necessary quiet time discovering and refining those values. Otherwise, we end up either letting other people make choices for us or going with the candidate who has the best ad campaign. We have an obligation not only to ourselves but to current and future generations to connect with our values and make choices as a citizen that reflect these values. Again, this takes time and turning down the volume."

    I checked the publication date after reading that paragraph. It was 2003.

    I was given this book to borrow and read because it just simply transformed my best friend's life. My life, however, was not erratically changed like I was told it would be. Though, it definitely impacted me on a level that made me grateful to have read it at all.
    Regardless of the altering effects it may have had on me, it took me FOREVER to finish. I understand the layout of the book and why it was done the way it was, but because of this I literally fell asleep reading this a few times.
    Another detrimental flaw was the "real life stories" that were implemented throughout the whole book. There was a few I liked and felt were relate-able, but once a sentence started with "Take Jill for example," I could not help, but roll my eyes and try to prepare myself for an unrealistic circumstance. The stories were like something you would have read in school and to then be tested on.
    With the negativity laid out, I am a severe over thinker. I go crazy prattling on in my mind about something simple and insignificant. This overthinking could have started with a conversation I had that I felt went negatively and explode to why I have no friends. This is dramatic of course, but has unfortunately happened. It was nice to hear this was normal and more common in women. I know if I tell my boyfriend or father about something I am worried about they think I'm crazy and weird for worrying about something so trivial.
    Instead of just being told to let it go, this teaches you ways to start letting the simple and often silly things go so they don't drive you to madness in the middle of the night. I don't think the steps will be easy to follow, but a potential coping mechanism to alleviate some of the everyday stress is a blessing.

    Probably THE most relatable book I’ve ever read. I will probably read it over and over! One of those books that makes you say - So it’s not just me!

    My brain literally never stops. In fact I routinely have two lines of thought at any given time. Not to mention any kind of visual thoughts I might be having. It can be exhausting. So when something bad is happening - or all the bad things are happening all at once like lately!! - I am definitely one to OVERTHINK. And probably to over think about the 2-3 absolute WORST possible outcomes all at once! (And overthink about overthinking). Oh joy! Aren’t you happy you aren’t in my head?

    Well Susan Nolen-Hoeksma Ph.D is. She gets me. We are soul sisters! Thank God I am not the only one! And thank God she gives some super practical advice on how to just STOP! Without just telling me to get over it - because those 3 words have me overthinking for days every time! Lol - am I laughing or crying? Laughing? Oh good! It’s working then.

    If your brain never stops - if you catastrophize- if your anxieties have anxieties - READ THIS BOOK.
