Summary

When you are criticized or rejected, do you have a tendency to lash out or withdraw entirely? Both types of kneejerk reactions can have lasting and unintended consequences, affecting our friendships, careers, families, and romantic relationships. The truth is, overreacting hurts us as much as it hurts the people around us. You may see overreacting as an unchangeable part of your personality, but in reality, this tendency, like any other, can be unlearned.

Stop Overreacting helps you identify your emotional triggers, discover a new way of processing impulsive thoughts and feelings, and understand how your emotions can undermine your ability to think rationally in moments of crisis and stress. You'll learn how to neutralize overwhelming emotions and choose healthy responses instead of flying off the handle. Ready to make a change for the better? It's time to stop overreacting and start feeling collected and in control.

Top notch

This book was of incredible help to me! The information presented here was not stereotypical and diluted as too often self help style books turn out to have. Instead, I was able to gain perspective and get breakthrough. I totally recommend it! It was like a 5 h therapy session.

offers no solution

Any additional comments?

It spends too many times talking about problems and very little about solution to them. I'm not one of those people who create solutions only by gaining insight. So this book does not work for me.

Best self-help book I’ve listened to / read ... if i’d choose one book to listen to , it’s this one !

Truly an amazing book with amazing narration ! A true professional approach , and narrated it almost feels like a therapy session where the therapist explains what happens in your mind and emotions . Genuinely couldn’t get enough of it , breakthroughs happen every other chapter . I also love that the author encourages actually getting professional help that’s specific to the person but just shows you where the patterns are not good and gives exercises that help shift those . The exercises are not cheesy and very doable and they WORK ! I’m gonna give this book multiple listens after this first one .. highly encourage anxious people and people who have heavy internal lives to listen to this ! It’s The ONe book you need to listen to !

Good content. Bad narration.

The content is good but the reader lacks intonation. She sounds like machine reading sometimes.

Insightful

I highly recommend. I was amazed at how the brain works in conjunction to how we are raised. The end of chapter exercises were very helpful in uncovering some pass hurts that causes me to 'flood'. I especially like the real life patient examples & could relate. The narration was nice and engaging. The one drawback for me was that I found myself constantly rewinding to fully understand a passage, so a physical book in this case would be better for reference/note taking. But I enjoyed the content overall.

Surprisingly insightful and practical

Surprisingly insightful and practical. Good insights. Organized. Flows well. Doesn’t drag. And good practical applications after each chapter, and at the end.
