I first heard sisters Emily and Amelia Nagoski on Brené Brown’s podcast, Unlocking Us. Wanting to know more, I ordered an audio version of their book Burnout: The Secret To Unlocking the Stress Cycle. As a woman, their words resonate from beginning to end.
Emily Nagoski, PhD and her twin sister, Amelia Nagoski, DMA, exam the role stress plays in the lives of women and offer down-to-earth, practical steps for coping. In the audio edition, read by both sisters, their personalities radiate. Through storytelling, humour, and science-based application, Burnout delivers a manual for navigating womanhood I wish I’d read years ago. I’ve recommended it to all my children.
Burnout is a step-by-step guide to recognizing, demystifying, and eliminating excess stress in your life. The authors include worksheets that ground their theories, and empower women to make the changes they need.
I can’t recommend this book enough. Clearly it is a heart project for the authors, who know of what they write. Their passion and commitment to help others radiates through every page.
