As someone who has a hard time setting emotional boundaries and not internalizing the emotional stresses of others, I found this book super useful. It's well-structured and easy-to-read with tons of interactive sections. It truly is a workbook, not just a self-help book. The author, Stephanie Jameson, does a great job of providing examples of things you might have experienced, and then relating those experiences to some of the generalized experiences and traits of empaths. I like that this book both has sections aligned with current psychology perspectives as well as sections that embrace more holistic/spiritual approaches. For example, Chapter Six discusses some classic psychological challenges, like insomnia, addiction, and adrenal fatigue while Chapter 9 takes one through all the Chakra's and the principles of Chakra healing. The great this about this book is that you don't have to be decidedly in the strictly empirical or holistic camp - anyone can use the various sections of this book as it suits them.
