I really appreciate Allison’s focus on self-advocacy in this book!

Amazing! I love this book. As an HSP and a therapist to HSPs, I have found it to be written and organized in a way that is easy to follow and understand. It is written with compassion and understanding without feeling talked down to by an expert. I recommend that each of my clients purchase this book.
Informative and Real! First and foremost, it is a clear and concise outline of what it is like to be a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP). Additionally, Ms. Lefkowitz provides the reader with relatable examples and tangible ways to work through typical HSP challenges (e.g. overstimulation and interpersonal skills) and, she does so with the use of metaphor and wit which makes for both an enjoyable and educational read! Highly recommended!
All the personal stories in this book made this a very engaging and enjoyable read, whether you identify as a HSP or know someone who is and we all do. It is especially helpful, I feel, to parents, who may not understand their child’s sensitivities and uniqueness.
It is an excellent and comprehensive guide that I can refer back to when faced with a situation or a question.
