When I first picked up this book, I assumed it would be heavily relying on science to discuss human emotions, with some self help advice and a little bit of anecdotal evidence from the author. This book read more like a memoir than something scientific. The book discusses the authors life story, the trauma she's been through and how it effected her mental health and career. Chapter nine was my favorite chapter. The book primarily covers the topics of mental heath, emotional intelligence, sensitivity, and trauma. The main thing I took away from this book is that being highly sensitive isn't a bad thing, you just have to know how to cope with extreme emotions. This book isn't bad, I just wish is was based more in scientific research than anecdotal stories. If you're looking for a nonfiction book about the human mind and emotions, then you might enjoy reading this book.
