From the author of Women Who Think Too Much, a groundbreaking book that uncovers a hidden source of depression in women today

Depression is a common and debilitating problem among women, though it rarely occurs in a vaccum. As Susan Nolen-Hoeksema’s original research shows, overthinking—a tendency to ruminate on problems rather than to seek solutions—often co-exists with unhealthy eating habits and/or heavy drinking. In fact, 80 percent of women who report suffering from one of those also suffer from another. This groundbreaking book, written in a vivid narrative style that captures the complexities of women’s lives today, explains how the three core problems of the Toxic Triangle reinforce one another, wreaking havoc on women’s emotional well-being, physical health, relationships, and careers.

Escape is possible, Nolen-Hoeksema assures us, for those who are already aware that they suffer from a serious problem as well as for the hundreds of thousands of others who have not yet examined the role that bingeing and purging—on negative thoughts, food, or alcohol—plays in their lives. Nolen-Hoeksema shows women how to harness their emotional and interpersonal strengths to overcome the stress caused by a destructive relationship with food, alcohol, and overthinking so that they can fashion effective, healthier strategies for living the life they deserve.
