   Great book with practical takeaways
This book gives a great overview of why we are burnout, and gives practical ways to address it based in neuroscience and trauma informed research. The book addresses structural barriers (gender, class, race) which are not often addressed in self help books, which is a very important piece of why oppressed and marginalized groups may be burnout in our society. Highly recommended!
   Well, duh...
For all the reasons everyone else is stressed right now, I am just as stressed as they are. I thought the book would give me a clear understanding of what is happening in my body. She was stressed and silly. She was exercising. Now she's better. The end is over. Beyond stoopid, slacker. When I return a book it is rare, but this one went back after 20 pages. I am too stressed to read.
I'm the same demographic as this book. I' ve gotten some valuable insight into what's making me so miserable, even though I like my job. That information is hidden behind layers of fake dialogue, useless sentences, biographical indulgence and other cutesy crap women apparently require to understand relatively simple science. I'd be embarrassed to recommend it to anyone. To put it politely, it's not for advanced learners.
   Not practical- mostly a feminist rant
There is a feminist agenda. It wasn't nearly enough practical help in dealing with burnout, but a long rant about the state of women. I'm a woman and I'm not disadvantaged. I was expecting a book that would teach me how to deal with stress in a healthy way. Most of the book was devoted to describing how unfair the cultural system is, but a small part of it was about how to deal with it.
This is the best book I have read in a long time. It is written in a way that is easy to understand and familiar, and yet I have cried at least four times already. I want to give it to every woman I know. Give yourself time to read and you will understand. I am blown away by it. The authors show how our bodies and minds work together and how conditioned we are to shut ourselves down in ways that slowly exhaust us. It's amazing.
   Therapy at a fraction of the price!
Issues that come up in my work as a therapist are described in this book. I was blown away by the ease with which the authors explained difficult concepts such as stress cycles, body image issues, the patriarchy, self- compassion and many others that took years of graduate school to understand. I like their point of view regarding issues pertaining to women. This book is a must- have in my collection. I' ve recommended it to many people.
   A resonant roadmap for healing
The pop culture references added a lot to them. Pop culture is a product of its times and our times are interesting. Pop culture helps figure out our responses. BURNOUT taught me so many helpful things, vivid metaphors that should stick in my mind when stress is high and my mind is casting about for a place to ground itself There are many Star Trek references. At Tenagra, it was very Darmok and Jalad.
   Important, timely, and USEFUL
For everyone, this is an amazing book. The first two chapters are worth the price of the book for the information on how stress and stressors work in our bodies. Highly recommendable.
   The Feminist Self-Help Book We All Deserve
The book is important. You want to give it to everyone you know because you know it will make their lives better. The Nagoski sisters make it easy to understand and apply, from understanding the importance of completing the stress cycle, to facing down Human Giver Syndrome, to making friends with the madwoman we all have in our attic. Do yourself a favor and read this book right away.
   Absolutely one of the best books I've read.
I learned a lot about my stress and how to manage it. I' ll read this book multiple times because it's realistic and real.
