Publisher's 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.

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.

So helpful!!!

Listening to this book really helped me realize the emotional problems and contributing factors that I had and the affect they had on destroying my family. I hope others can find it before it’s too late for them

Good content. Bad narration.

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

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.
