    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...

    [I received a copy of this book through NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.] Not exactly an eye-opener, since I was already considering a lot of the stressors and consequences it lists as, well, logical?but in that regard, it was also good to see that ?ah, so it?s not...

    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?....

    EVERY WOMAN I KNOW NEEDS TO READ THIS BOOK! I am not kidding. This could change your life. I will probably re-listen to it more than once because I'm sure I missed something. For now, I'm going to sleep more, move more and like who I am. Thanks so much for this gift, Emily and Amelia! ...

    Thanks to Edelweiss, the authors, and the publisher for an advanced reader copy. I will be buying a copy of this book when it comes out so I can highlight it all over and remind myself that I need to be following its principles. The Nagoski sisters expertly explain the stress cycle and...

    I received this book as an advanced reader?s copy. Unlike other books that just provide a list of platitudes, such as Girl, Wash Your Face, this book addresses the problem from a scientific perspective while providing useful applications for dealing with the stress, stressors, and le...

    I haven't really been a great reader of "self help" books as I have always preferred fiction, but a few people have recommended some books to me that they have found very beneficial to them so I thought I would dip my toe into the self help water. Unfortunately, I don't necessarily ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    In this feminist self-help book, authors Emily and Amelia Nagoski (twins!) deconstruct the stress cycle, particularly in women, and how to overcome it, as well as point out the overarching infrastructure of our sexist culture that leads to stress and burnout. With a blend of science, a...

    "Burnout" got my attention with the title. As a working mom who is always feeling a bit overwhelmed, I knew many other women share the same struggles in taking good care of ourselves and trying not to do too much. Stress becomes an albatross that few can remove from their necks, and I ...

    *** 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 ...

    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...

    Thank you to NetGalley, Ballantine Books, and Emily and Amelia Nagoski for an ARC ebook copy to review. As always, an honest review from me. My rating is 3.5 stars, but since there aren't half stars I always round up. Like: - Very educational, especially the science behind bur...

    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 won this book through a giveaway. This book is for all the women out there who have their lives together, those who think they have their lives together, and for those that know without a doubt that they are failing at 'together'. It's a wonderfully modern take on today's world an...

    Two things to note before I review: I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway, and I also attended Smith College during the time that Emily Nagoski was working there, so have seen her speak many times. I thought this was a great read and really broke down how women can counteract burn...
