Thank you Pinterest! I was introduced to Anne Bogel’s work by Pinterest years ago by a pin about books that stemmed from her blog Modern Mrs. Darcy. I highly recommend her blog as it is a great resource for book recommendations as well as other fun lifestyle information. I also recommend her podcast What Should I Read Next? for all of anyone’s bookish needs :).
An in-depth yet easy to understand look into different personalities. It is also a look into the interactions of these distinct personalities and how conflict can be reduced by understanding how each person’s personality affects how they communicate. I really enjoyed how she broke down each personality type, gave strengths and weaknesses of each, and referenced other resources so that the reader can investigate further.
The section that made the biggest impact on me was the section about Highly Sensitive People. I have quite a few people in my life who would fit into this personality type and it completely opened my mind on understanding them. Also, it helped me learn how to be helpful when they are stressed. For example: keeping the kitchen counters clean. I wouldn’t have thought about the importance of it before reading this book.
I would recommend this book for fans of non-fiction and self-help. I would also recommend this book for those who are fascinated by different personality types and would like to know more.
Bonus: The audiobook is read by none other than the author Anne Bogel herself!
Please note: I received a hard copy of the book for free from the author in the encouragement of an honest review.
