    This is a really well-intentioned book, and I think/hope it will be helpful to a lot of people. I think the authors' advice is generally very good. However, nothing in here was particularly new to me, nor presented in a way that especially resonated. In fact, I found the sort of Tumblr...

    This is the feminist book on stress I never knew I needed! I would never have picked up this book if I were judging its cover, first for the "breast cancer ribbon pink" of the cover and then for the title. I blame the publishers rather than the authors for this, though, because once in...

    This book is filled with so much information, and I?ve been obsessively recommending it and quoting it to just about every woman I know. It?s got so much good and general information about the stress cycle, and how to deal with it. (And anxiety, and burnout, and loneliness, and and...

    Audiobook... read by the author. When I first saw this perky pink- book - with the title ?Burnout?.... I was kidding - but not completely when I said... ?Paul, I have a book for you?. Paul looked at the title and said.... ?stresses me out just looking at that book?....

    It isn't every day that I say that a book has truly changed my life but this one did. This is a book that every woman should read. EVERY WOMAN. I found it to be revolutionary ... it explained so much to me about why I was feeling the way that I was feeling. And, even better, it gave me...

    As the authors would say, ?ugh.? No really, I counted about five ?ughs? in the initial skim through of the book. This felt not only whiny and unprofessional, but also as if they were setting me up not to take it seriously. Beyond that, it was hard to. Everyone is talki...

    Much better than the average self-help book. It has all the usual good advice bits, and a few that were even new to me, specific advice for finishing the stress cycle, getting lots of rest, what self-care really looks like. I loved the "human giving" vs. "human being" discussion. The p...

    Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read and review this book. Unfortunately this was a case of reading a book at the wrong time. I?m in the midst of a season of deep burnout. I?m in the midst of being three months unemployed. In my case, reading about ...

    Everyone is burned out these days. Most of us (especially women) are brought up believing that you must be pretty, happy, calm, and generous at all times: Failure is not an option. This book blows the doors off all that, by uncovering the true elements of and causes of burnout (with ...

    I eagerly bought this book the day it came out. I was surprised to find that this highly anticipated book on burn-out had turned into a hard feminist critique of society. I'm not much of a feminist scholar, but this critique made a lot of sense and will be influencing my future reading...

    I first heard about this book on the Smart Bitches podcast and thought it sounded interesting, so when I saw it on Netgalley, I requested it immediately. I burned out last year and ended up leaving my job. Anything that would help with my recovery would be most welcome. This book made...

    The only reason I picked up this book is because I went to the bookstore to pick up a different book by the same author called Come as You Are: The Surprising New Science that Will Transform Your Sex Life (a truly outstanding, mind-blowing exploration of female sexuality and the female...

    Someday I will look back on this time in my life and point to this book as when it all changed. Yes. It?s that good. I'm a huge fan of Emily Nagoski's Come As You Are. In it, she briefly explored unlocking the stress cycle and it gave me so much to think about. A whole book co-writte...

    I?m skeptical when it comes to self help books, but after hearing the Nagoski sisters on Smart Podcast, Trashy Books and being totally charmed by them, I knew I wanted to hear more of their ideas. The title to me is a little limited for what the book actually is: an exploration of no...

    *** 3.5 rounded up to 4 Stars *** Let me start by saying I am not a fan of self help books that feel like cheerleaders. I don't want to be cheered on in life. So then why did I request this book? I requested this because this is NOT that kind of self help book. Burnout is something ...

    I was left feeling a bit confused after finishing this book. The title implies the book is about burn-out and how to solve your stress etc, but in reality the book was only about burnout and how to actaully handle stress for 10%, while the other 90% was filled with feministic chatter a...

    This book is such a disappointment. Buckets of crazy feminist bs in it. This sucks as a help book. It started out pretty good but turned into an annoying tirade about patriarchy and an obesity glorifying mantra. I was stressed out just reading it. The messages are a copy&past...

    4 stars overall/for other readers, but 3 stars for me personally. The Nagoski sisters set out to make a "feminist self-help book" and they deliver on their promise. This book is pretty evidence-based, but as someone who keeps up with psychology findings, none of their points were reall...

    Described as a feminist guide to women's survival, Burnout breaks down how to deal with stress, smash the patriarchy and be compassionate to yourself. I want to recommend this to several people in my life - but most of all, I want to do the work this book outlines. To help make the wor...

    I have always struggled with pretty much everything the authors describe: toxic perfectionism, a lack of self-compassion, body image issues, all that mess. While many concepts in this book weren?t new, there were a few ideas that lit a fire under me and made me see things in a differ...

    Wonderful, informative and relatable, even fun despite the oft-depressing topics, like the "Bikini Industrial Complex" and the "Giver Syndrome", sisters (twins, actually) Emily and Amelia Nagoski collaborated on a book SO of the times it was almost too good, too real. Though it is real...

    Absolutely essential reading. This is a beautiful book about the unique stress people (especially women) experience after centuries of patriarchy and capitalism and also about how to not let it ruin you. The stressors examined and the science behind their effects are real and the remed...

    Emily and Amelia Nagoski are talented enough in their chosen fields but they missed their calling as professional audiobook narrators. They pack a lot of info and wisdom into their "Burnout" book but, very importantly, they are *really* fun to listen to. This book is basically for a...
