Praise for Burnout

“Burnout is mind-blowing and so helpful if you want to stop and reboot the way you live to feel much less stressed ... it is groundbreaking and practical and, unlike most books on the subject, grounded in thorough research.”

Lorraine Candy, Sunday Times Style

“Burnout is the gold standard of self-help books, delivering cutting-edge science with energy, empathy, and wit. The authors know exactly what’s going on inside of your frazzled brain and body, and exactly what you can do to fix it. Truly life-changing.”

Sarah Knight, New York Times bestselling author of Calm the F*** Down

“Reading Burnout I knew this was not ‘just another self-help book’ that keeps us trapped by the idea of female inadequacy. It turns our struggle with stress on its head, and paves a meaningful path to what the authors call ‘growing mighty’ by bravely dropping in thoroughly contemporary and refreshing truth bombs, like, yeah, the patriarchal system is the issue, and goddamn it’s time we play by our own rules!”

Sarah Wilson, New York Times bestselling author of First, We Make the Beast Beautiful

“Emily and Amelia Nagoski deconstruct the stress we experience as women, and their compassionate, science-based advice on how to release it made me cry with gratitude and relief. The book is that revolutionary.”

Peggy Orenstein, author of Girls and Sex: Navigating the Complicated New Landscape
