Publisher's Summary

Why do so many women drink and eat to excess and then spend their days regretting it? An expert on women and depression explains what can be done to treat and prevent it.

Depression is a common and debilitating problem among women, though it rarely occurs in a vacuum. As Susan Nolen-Hoeksema's original research shows, overthinking, a tendency to ruminate on problems rather than seek solutions, often co-exists with unhealthy eating habits and/or heavy drinking. In fact, 80 percent of women who report suffering from one of those also suffer from another. This groundbreaking audiobook explains how these three core problems reinforce one another, wreaking havoc on women's emotional well-being, physical health, relationships, and careers.

Susan Nolen-Hoeksema shows women how to harness their emotional and interpersonal strengths to overcome the stress caused by a destructive relationship with food, alcohol, and overthinking so that they can fashion effective, healthier strategies for living the life they deserve.

Nothing new here

This book offers absolutely no new information and lots of assumptions that seem based more on the authors opinions rather than actual research. Reads like an article in a freebie womens magazine. Was very disappointed.

Not really helpful

This book phrases a lot of assumptions as fact and doesn’t necessarily do a great job connecting all 3. This book would have been more enjoyable with a different narrator.

Zero new information and the worst damn near rating voice I’ve ever heard

What’s truly ironic – is that the authors voice, although she is speaking in terms of advocating for women – sounds like June damn Cleaver. The worst pretentious breathy BS voice I’ve ever heard in my life and I never want to hear it ever again. Stupid book. Complete waste of time if you’re even remotely literate or educated.

The overall tome suggests women are weak.

Struggled to finish it. If I hear "toxic triangle" one more time I'm gonna hurl.
