Waterstones Says

Reclaiming the term sensitive from its negative connotations, Granneman and Solo's thoughtful, perceptive book - perfect reading for fans of Susan Cain's Quiet - emphasises the heightened empathy and creativity that comes with the character trait.

Have you ever been told you're too sensitive? Welcome to the club.

Nearly 1 in 3 people have the genes to be more sensitive than others. But what if we said it doesn't have to be the insult it's always been framed as?

Highly sensitive people:

· Have a heightened sense of empathy
· Tune into subtle details and make connections that others miss
· Are often wonderfully creative

Through fascinating research, expert storytelling and practical insight, this book will teach you how to unlock the potential in this undervalued strength and leverage it in your relationships, your work and your life.

Shattering the myth that being sensitive is a weakness, Sensitive will change - once and for all - how the world sees sensitive people, and how they see themselves.
