A Powerful Book for Uniquely Powerful People

This book hits the sweet spot for driven, success-oriented individuals who experience elevated self doubt, imposter sydrome, analysis paralysis, and self criticism. What the author describes as "sensitive strivers" is a group that's kind of hard to peg, yet she nails it in a way only someone who has been there herself can. I have always been a sensitive person driven to push myself in life and at work. It's difficult to talk about sensitivity without making it seem either immature or like a personality defect. Others talk about sensitivity in a woo woo self-help kind of way. This book strikes a realistic tone with tons of practical examples grounded in science and actual people's experiences. It looks at sensitivity not as a defect or a mystical superpower, but as a real part of yourself. A tool you can put to work for you or allow to work against you. The book provides a clear framework to understand how Sensitive Strivers tick, examples of real people who put their sensitivity to work for them and lots of exercises to help you achieve the same results in your life. The concepts are approachable, the stories are so very relatable, and the results are powerful.

A Terrific Resource You'll Use Again and Again

Melody has constructed an accessible framework for harnessing difficult, often paralyzing, emotions and behaviors. Simply being aware of the bigger picture around how one's feelings operate and manifest in various environments is empowering; this book provides that picture. Building on that understanding, the reader is given tools to capitalize on emotions as strengths for success in their work and personal lives. Melody's concepts and tools deliver reliable guidance that does not go stale and can serve you over and over again as you navigate new challenges. Highly recommend.

A helpful book for people like me

I listen to a lot of self-help books as I'm always looking to improve how I handle life. This book spoke to issues so specific to me, I was shocked. If you are dealing with imposter syndrome, or struggle to find confidence in your career, this book gives you not only the tools to adjust your mindset but also makes you feel like you aren't alone.
