I understand there are two forms meaning 'too little' or too few', I thought the regular way to conjugate the negative was ない-form verb, and the last い is replaced with さ, making なさすぎる. (e.g 食べなさすぎる) But at the end of the chapter it says you can also use なすぎる with 'most regular i-adjectives'such as 危なすぎる 'not too dangerous'. Please can someone explain this to me.

    Are you sure you read this correctly? 危ない means 'dangerous'. It's not a negation. So 危なすぎる would mean 'too dangerous' wouldn't it? – user3856370 Nov 19 '17 at 18:05
