whistling teeth and some other consonants drove me nuts sometimes but other than that it was awesome and very informative. highly recommend this for either introvert or extrovert
This is such an amazing, affirming, informative book that provides a broad array of insight and facts. It is a must read for any introvert and would be very instructive for any extrovert!
There were many moments where I had to stop and think about what Susan was talking about as it coincided in my own experiences in life. This is an entertaining and thorough analysis of introverted dynamics and characteristics that are very present in every society to date. Highly recommended to anyone who considers themselves or someone they care about as introverted.
It is very few book i read it and i tear up when i read it,, this book made me cry ,, not in a bad way no it made me cry coz i felt this book it talking directly to me and about me,, it is a very good book and guildline for all intervers people and for an extervers to understand the intervers thanks Susin
It was very distracting to hear every single tongue movement of the narrator during the first minutes of the book. It sounded like the mic was inside her mouth. After a while, it either got better or I tuned it out.
Other than that I enjoyed the insights of the book and found a lot of the experiences the author mentioned very similar to mine.
Great takeaway tips and techniques to navigate the sea of talkers that is our culture. It's wonderful when someone can materialize into words what you've felt your whole life.
Yes, I would recommend. The book helps people better understand others and allow them to communicate better, creating a more efficient work environment, a better way to raise kids, improving/saving relationships, and make yourself a better person for it.

I've got a few people that I'm going to share this book to
I originally was not going to read this book because I assumed it was going to be like every other "it's okay to be an introvert" book that talks about how you need all sorts to make a world. I have read that book/article way too many times to read another. I finally gave in when the book was popping up everywhere and on everyone's recommendation lists. I was happily surprised to find that it is much less a self help book then it is a research review on all the studies that have been conducted around introversion and when combining all this research and studies together what that might mean for optimal classrooms, work environments, parenting and many other situations. Where there is the classic "there is nothing wrong with your child/self if they/you are introverted it talks about the more practical side and what studies have to say about optimal levels of stimulation and finding that for every individual or even couple. Great book with loads of NEW and interesting information.
