Burnout: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle by Emily Nagoski, PhD, Amelia Nagoski, DMA

Burnout (2019) offers women an honest and practical look at the causes of their everyday stress and anxiety and the different ways in which science can help. Since women continue to face a very different set of expectations to men, it stands to reason that women also deal with a different form of burnout. Authors Emily and Amelia Nagoski offer scientific, as well as personal, insight into what’s really going on and what women can do to not only persist but thrive in the modern world.

  • Women facing daily burnout
  • Anyone tired of living up to impossible expectations
  • People in need of stress management tips

Emily Nagoski holds a PhD in health behavior from Indiana University and currently works at Smith College in Massachusetts as the director of wellness education.
