Description

PRAISE FOR DR. ELAINE ARON AND HER GROUNDBREAKING CLASSIC
THE HIGHLY SENSITIVE PERSON
 
“Elaine Aron’s perceptive analysis of this fundamental dimension of human nature is must reading. Her balanced presentation suggests new paths for making sensitivity a blessing, not a handicap.”
—Philip G. Zimbardo, author of Shyness
 
“Enlightening and empowering, this book is a wonderful gift to us all.”
—Riane Ensler, author of The Chalice and the Blade
 
“Shy people fear being judged or rejected, whereas highly sensitive people have a keen awareness of their environment, frequently becoming overstimulated by it.”
Self

 
“If you are easily overwhelmed by noise, chaos, and emotions; perform poorly when being observed; and require time alone each day as much as you need food and water, there is no need to worry; recent research shows your heightened sensitivity can do you more good than harm.”
Counseling Today
 
“The first book that helps readers to identify their highly sensitive trait and to make the most of it.”
Counseling and Human Development
 
“Aron combines self-tests with useful, nonclichéd advice on stress control and provocative descriptions of research on how people become HSPs.”
Fitness
 
“At book signings, people have come up to her [Elaine Aron] and said, ‘You've saved my life.’”
San Francisco Chronicle
 
“Aron's book is not a fly-by-night, self-help tome, but instead a serious, five-year effort to explore a subject on which little has been done.”
Portland Oregonian
 
“This book is a valuable resource for the HSP, as well as those who are trying to understand the HSP.”
The New Times (Seattle)
 
“This innovative psychologist has figured out that the extreme reactivity of a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) can be a good thing. This comes as a relief to people like me—and probably you, too.”
Pathways (Washington, D.C.)
