    1. I don t know why it is titled Women who think too much I think the book is relevant to both men and women I am really glad to have read this book it doesn t really answer all questions, but it gives good advises to beat overthinkingI am sure, I shall read it again some time soon.The best thing about it is mainly the case studies, and life scenarios It makes ideas very clear, as if I am living each situation exactly Most probably the reactions mentioned would be exactly my reaction if I am in tha [...]


    2. Stari moj, trebalo mi je samo sedam mjeseci da ju zgotovim Uvijek su se neki drugi naslovi ubacivali prije Prvih stotinjak stranica jako naporno i dosadno jer se navode nepresusni izvori raznih testiranja.Da ne zapocnem Novu s repom ova knjiga je procitana, ali da sam nesto ekstra doznala o rjesavanju problema pretjeranog razmisljanja i nisam Samo hrpu novih ideja za vjezbanje mozga P Pouka Svaka zena bi sebi trebala pronaci najbolji nacin kako ne razmisljati puno u prazno Ma da A da ste dali ba [...]


    3. Really good book I read it in the library cuz it caught my eye because lately I have been over thinking my relationship with my bf And it was very helpful Made me feel better and I actually was taking a walk to try and clear my mind and ended up at the bookstore So what she says about doing something for urself helps u not over think so much is so true Not being so clingy giving ur partner space and not always trying to fix ur relationship or over analyzing every little thing he does I recommend [...]


    4. One thing annoyed me greatly Whenever the author is introducing a woman in one of her examples, she always describes them as a plucky blonde with sparkling blue eyes I couldn t help but be distracted by how tacky and stereotypical this comes off It really turned me off to the book.


    5. Helpful in understanding whether you think too much and how to cope with that Most women I know tend to have this issue and I think it s important to recognize and acknowledge the problem, while trying to keep it under control.


    6. This book was very negative and repetitive The author provided plenty of negative thinking anecdotes from people who think too much That was 99% of the book She spent very little time giving you actual advice about what to do if you are thinking a lot This book should have been called, Examples of negative thinking and I won t tell you how to fix it This book made me feel worse A lot of her examples were horrible situations that happened to people Things that us humans don t want to dwell on Her [...]


    7. Puiki knyga moterims, kurios gyvenime per daug analizuoja Jos taip panyra analiz , kad nepajunta kaip min i uraganas su griaunan ia j ga jas nune a toli toli Jos ima save nuvertinti ir visi kai pasimeta, nebe inodamos kaip spr sti savo situacija Autor gyvais pavyzd iais nupie ia ne viena besaikio m stymo situacij Taip pat paskiria vis skyri atrast b dus kaip sustabdyti save Labai patiko, jog nuolat pabr iama kad lengv keli n ra Tik nuolatinis darbas su savimi pakeis j s gyvenim Tai nuima ro iniu [...]


    8. Some of the case studies in the book really annoyed me as another reviewer said, is it necessary for us to know the eye and hair color of all of the women discussed No.That said, I did appreciate the straightforward manner that Nolen Hoeksema approaches the over thinking problem and practical tips for managing it As a chronic ruminator, it was helpful to me to realize that I am not solving problems by thinking about them all the time instead I am making them worse Obviously not all of her tips f [...]


    9. I enjoyed reading this book and it has given me several things to think about in regards to my overthinking in relat does.tion to my mental health Ways to get out of the cycle, How to prevent it reoccuring, and what to do if it does I believe this book has a lot to offer to men as well and don t understand why it is marketed name for women There are some women related items but perhaps only a paragraph or two Why must we know the hair, skin, and eye color of all the case studies Aren t we all th [...]


    10. I admit I skimmed because the book was too nonfictiony for me Part I had a few interesting insights about why we overthink Part II was most helpful with strategies to overcome over thinking I didn t read part III because I didn t see the point in reading over 100 pages about triggers The first two parts of the book were enough for me.


    11. I m very glad I happened upon this book at my local Coles bookstore I often felt like the pages of this book were taken directly from the narrative of my life Very relatable material and very practical tips on coping with various aspects of life that tend to be the targets of overthinking and overanalyzing It certainly made me feel a tad less isolated than I have been feeling whilst in the crippling midst of anxiety and depression fuelled by overthinking Personally speaking, I feel the author we [...]


    12. There were very detailed senarios in here that followed with blocked paragraphs consisting of anxiety related questions and run on thoughts that were stressful to read than anything It read like an anxiety attack in my opinion very in sensitive, jumps from one sentence to the other without much ease or flow Very clinically written Not the sort of text I was expecting.Should really give it one star Surprised there aren t books with a similar title.


    13. I could totally related to the women featured in the case studies of this book Some useful strategies though nothing that I haven t heard before It did re inspire me though to make another serious attempt to control my over thinking.




    14. A lot of great examples with solutions I can definitely apply some of these things in my life experiences.



    15. Was looking for of science oriented view, but got self help with a scientific basis instead Mildly interesting, especially if perseverating is an issue for you Sort of got bogged down in case studies Certain of the basic premises were worth a look overthinking is a modern malaise and a female one for the most part Overthinking is ruminating way too much over things that do not go right in one s life The author s belief is that this is a natural function of the way the brain works in creating co [...]


    16. Ignoring the overly sexist title, the tips provided by this book were pretty insightful I hardly ever read any self help books but I picked this up because of the problem I m facing myself It s embarrassing to admit but I think it s important to find out the problem and face it than lying to yourself Well, I could get a little over sensitive sometimes and I prone to overthink says in the title Coming back to the book, it wasn t an overly theory fied book The author provided stories along with h [...]


    17. La autora define el pensar demasiado como pensamiento excesivo , yo lo defino como esas cosas a las que uno les da vueltas en las noches de insomnio y y en momentos de angustia Un libro que pretende ser did ctico al ofrecernos t cnicas para no pensar demasiado, las cuales no se presentan de manera muy clara, aun con los cuadros esquem ticos Lo que s podr a aterrizar en la realidad, y admito que fue la mejor parte que le , fue la ultima y tercera parte sobr la manera de resumir y ejemplificar las [...]


    18. Get your highlighter out for this one I wasn t aware of how much I overthought things This book helped me take an objective look at my train of thought and realize it doesn t always follow a healthy path One single negative thought can lead to a landslide of negative rumination It s a cycle Thought pathways are dug into your mind after years of overthinking certain aspects of your life Pick your trigger, intimate relationships, children, work whatever it is the overthinking becomes a habitual co [...]


    19. I started reading this book because it was in the recommended reading section in the back of Jean Twenge s great book Generation Me However, I found it a little too self help y for my taste I liked Twenge s observational approach, which gave me a lot to think about The concept is interesting though in the past people didn t overthink their lives Past generations simply accepted the hand life dealt to them and put the rest in God s hands Younger generations seem to dwell on and visit and revisit [...]


    20. Really gives you lots to think about Very good ideas how to overcome negative thinking, reach higher ground and resolve problems The case histories illustrated the way to practise the methods given and were in themselves good to read Even if you have not experienced exactly what each person went through, you can still identify with their initial usually negative reactions and responses and their reflective thinking and practising methods to improve situations Yes, it is a self help book but well [...]


    21. I feel like this was less of a How to stop overthinking book and of a How to overthink constructively book Which is fine the author makes a few good points My advice, though, would be to not go into this book expecting too much, particularly if you can t relate to any of the case studies Also, I really don t know why, but the author felt it was necessary to describe the hair and eye color of every woman in every case study she mentions It got comical after awhile The book is slow to start but [...]


    22. A thoughtful, well constructed book on the topic of rumination Could serve as a comprehensive guide to the subject Covers a lot of ground, pulling in related subject matter in ways that are useful and appropriate specifically things like the relationship between rumination and depression a strong one, perhaps not surprisingly and sociological factors that contribute to women s disproportionate susceptibility to both rumination and depression Notwithstanding the focus on gender, I think this book [...]


    23. I liked this fine It was a perfectly harmless and extremely accessible read that occasionally left me feeling vaguely motivated to overcome the chronic overthinking that I am evidently afflicted with Only for about a five minutes at a time, but I suspect that s because I am a hopeless case and not because Nolen Hoeksema doesn t know what she s talking about She probably does, and I was charmed inadvertently amused by the little exemplary narratives her book is full of Take, for example, Veronica [...]


    24. Clear and well written, especially with regard to the recommendations respect the actions to be taken at times when the over thinking becomes obsessive For use both in therapy or as a self help manual, although I do not think that outside of a therapeutic relationship it may be sufficient.Chiaro e ben scritto, specialmente per quanto riguarda i consigli rispetto alle azioni da da intraprendere nei momenti in cui il ruminamento si fa ossessivo Da usare sia in terapia, sia come manuale di auto aiu [...]


    25. I read this recently while doing research on a self help writing project of my own I d remembered recently seeing the author s obituary in the NY Times The book is excellent it s a very readable discussion based on a lot of very solid contemporary research on the nature of depression and anxiety and how we men as well as women can easily talk ourselves into developing serious depressions I wrote a longer discussion of the book on my blog at hiperfdiy.wordpress 2013 0.


    26. I purchased this book near what would be the end of a relationship I realized how much I needed to change and wish I had read much sooner I put it off because I was over thinking and wondering just how I could be better, what happened to end everything, when I should have been reading I highly recommend this to every woman facing even the slightest stressor So many lessons of self love and appreciation help you understand that life goes on, and likely than not for the better.


    27. This is a book aimed at women who ruminate too much The author identifies patterns in thinking that can lead to rumination and unrealistic expectations or fears, then offers fictional examples in which women overcome these thoughts I feel like I ve read books on this topic that are far interesting, but it s a very accessible book for people who haven t read much on the topics of anxiety or cognitive behavioral psychology.
