In the last few decades many psychologists have encouraged the view that constantly analysing and expressing our emotions is a good thing. Dr Susan Nolen-Hoeksema challenges this assumption in her breakthrough new book on conquering negative thinking.

Encouraged by a fast-paced, self analytical culture, women often spend countless hours dwelling on negative ideas, feelings and experiences. Dr Nolen-Hoeksema calls this 'overthinking' and her groundbreaking research shows that an increasing number of women are doing this too much and too often, hindering their ability to effectively deal with problems and lead a satisfying life.

Discover What 'overthinking' is and what causes it Why women are particularly prone to negative thinking Techniques for overcoming overthinking and finding real solutions to problems Problem areas which cause us to think negatively - and what to do about them Clearly and engagingly written, and packed with case studies and examples, Women Who Think Too Much will change lives and is destined to become a self-help classic.

A wonderfully critical metastudy of female thought patterns


I have a particular interest in womens' over-thinking problems because I am a 'mere male' trying his best to understand and make allowances for one woman's excessive over-thinking. This book has helped me along this path with its references to carefully chosen case studies.

"The question of whether Nolen-Hoeksema is onto something was slam-dunked by the 'I know exactly what she means' reactions of women who caught sight of the title." -"The Washington Post" "A must read for any woman who has ever felt stuck in her life, and any man who has been confused by why the women they love get so 'caught up thinking' they can't enjoy life. Nolen-Hoeksema offers practical methods to self-diagnose and pathways toward greater emotional freedom." -William S. Pollack, Ph.D., author of Real Boys, Assistant Clinical Professor, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard University
