From one of the nation’s preeminent experts in the study of women and emotion, a breakthrough new book based on the author’s award-winning research

It’s not a surprise that our fast-paced, overly analytical culture is pushing people—especially women—to spend countless hours thinking about negative ideas, feelings, and experiences. Renowned psychologist Dr. Susan Nolen-Hoeksema calls this “overthinking.” Her groundbreaking research shows that an increasing number of women—more than half of those in her extensive study—are doing it too much and too often, hindering their ability to lead a satisfying life. Overthinking can be anything from fretting about big questions such as “What am I doing with my life?” to losing sleep over a friend’s innocent comment. It is causing women to feel sad, anxious, or seriously depressed, and she challenges the assumption that constantly expressing and analyzing our emotions is a good thing.

In Women Who Think Too Much, Nolen-Hoeksema provides concrete strategies that can be used to escape these negative thoughts, move to higher ground, and avoid future traps.
