"The question of whether Nolen-Hoeksema is onto something was slam-dunked by the 'I know exactly what she means' reactions of women who caught sight of the title." -"The Washington Post" "A must read for any woman who has ever felt stuck in her life, and any man who has been confused by why the women they love get so 'caught up thinking' they can't enjoy life. Nolen-Hoeksema offers practical methods to self-diagnose and pathways toward greater emotional freedom." -William S. Pollack, Ph.D., author of Real Boys, Assistant Clinical Professor, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard University
