Publisher Description

The 25TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION of the original ground-breaking book on high sensitivity with over 500,000 copies sold.

Do you have a keen imagination and vivid dreams? Is time alone each day as essential to you as food and water? Are you noted for your empathy?  Your conscientiousness? Do noise and confusion quickly overwhelm you? If your answers are yes, you may be a highly sensitive person (HSP) and Dr. Elaine Aron’s The Highly Sensitive Person is the life-changing guide you’ll want in your toolbox.

Over twenty percent of people have this amazing, innate trait.  Maybe you are one of them.  A similar percentage is found in over 100 species, because high sensitivity is a survival strategy.  It is also a way of life for HSPs.
In this 25th anniversary edition of the groundbreaking classic, Dr. Elaine Aron, a research and clinical psychologist as well as an HSP herself, helps you grasp the reality of your wonderful trait, understand your past in the light of it, and make the most of it in your future. Drawing on her many years of study and face-to-face time spent with thousands of HSPs, she explains the changes you will need to make in order to lead a fuller, richer life.

Along with a new Author’s Note, the latest scientific research, and a fresh discussion of anti-depressants, this edition of The Highly Sensitive Person is more essential than ever for creating the sense of self-worth and empowerment every HSP deserves and our planet needs.

“Elaine Aron has not only validated and scientifically corroborated high sensitivity as a trait—she has given a level of empowerment and understanding to a large group of the planet’s population. I thank Dr. Aron every day for her having brought this awareness to the world.” 
—Alanis Morissette, artist, activist, teacher

Good book

I thought that this book was helpful in explaining HSPs and helping me feel more confident about myself as an HSP. I do believe the author makes poor distinct between HSP traits and neurotic traits. As someone with both, I feel that the author was labeling traits that are truly neurotic as being a HSP trait when that wasn’t quite true. Overall it was good.

Alas! Finally finding a concept that describes me!

I don't remember exactly when I acquired awareness that I am different. The author of this book finally gave me answers that helped me understand why I am so different from my siblings, why I had those vivid nightmares as a child, and why I am sensitive to many things when others don't see or perceive anything—an excellent reading to know myself a bit better.
