Editorial Reviews


The Empath’s Survival Guide contributes to a better awareness of just what empaths have to go through, and why they have such heightened perceptions. Empaths live among us —they’re our coworkers, neighbors, our family members, our icons. Albert Einstein, Princess Diana and Winona Ryder are on the list, as was Abraham Lincoln. We can learn much from their capacity compassion and mutual understanding — and we can help them better manage this hectic world.
--Patricia Gale, BlogCritics

"Judith Orloff, MD, delivers a comprehensive manual for empaths and the highly sensitive. For this historically overlooked population, the book offers a wealth of coping skills and practical advice from a unique perspective...Her compassionate understanding combined with practical knowledge make this book an exceptional find."  --The TherapistMagazine 

“Have you ever been told that you need to grow a thicker skin? Do you suspect that your sensitivity is the source not only of your pain but also of your joy, plus your empathy, creativity, and spirituality besides? This is the book for you. Written with—what else?—tremendous empathy, The Empath’s Survival Guide will help you to understand yourself and your gifts, and to forge a healthy path through this ever-coarsening but deeply beautiful world.” —Susan Cain, New York Times bestselling author of Quiet and founder of Quiet Revolution

“Dr. Orloff combines neuroscience, intuition, and energy medicine to show you how to stay powerful and strong in the world, while also keeping your compassion and empathy alive.” —Deepak Chopra, author of Super Genes
The Empath’s Survival Guide is wonderful, warm, and wise. Reading Judith’s book is like having a very savvy sister who teaches you the insider skills of how to deal with this perplexing and amazing talent of extreme sensitivity. We all know someone who is extremely sensitive, and the world hits them hard. It could be you, your sister or brother, your spouse, a coworker, or a friend. This book is packed with practical hints for embracing sensitivity and turning it into a gift.” —Lorin Roche, author of The Radiance Sutras

Her professional knowledge, as well as her personal experience as an empath—combined with the practical tools for surviving in a sometimes challenging world—make her the leading expert in the field.

The solution is not to give up empathy, but to develop skills that avoid being damaged or blindsided in the process. Dr. Judith Orloff’s The Empath’s Survival Guide shows how. This book is seriously needed. It addresses an issue long ignored in healing, psychology, and medicine.” —Larry Dossey, MD, author of One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters
