The Highly Sensitive Person – Reader Comments

The Highly Sensitive Person:
How To Thrive When The World Overwhelms You

by Elaine N. Aron, Ph.D.

“I have just finished The Highly Sensitive Person and I can’t thank you enough for writing such a wonderful book – you put into clear, understandable words what I have always known about myself…. Your book was the first that I have ever read that not only validated the traits of highly sensitive individuals but cast them as necessary for our society.”
– M.C., Rockaway, NJ

“First, let me express my deep gratitude to you if I can. I have just finished reading your book…. You have truly given me hope for a new life at the age of 52. I hardly know how to express the comfort and joy I have received from you.”
– J.M., New York, NY

“I cannot thank you enough for the inner peace your book has given me!”
– S.P., Sacramento, CA

“Elaine Aron’s book, The Highly Sensitive Person, is the first ever to really speak to me!”

“The feeling I had when reading this book was one of profound catharsis and a newfound appreciation and recognition of how this trait has played a role in my life. For this alone, the book played a tremendous role in expanding my view of myself and helping me to understand how I fit in with the world.”
– K.L., Seattle, WA, in New Times
