great for introverts our anyone whohe deals with them. This was a real eye opener for me, and I've spent a lot of time thinking about the nature of being introverted. Luckily I stumbled across her TED Talk about introverts, that lead me to this book.
Do yourself the favor and read / listen to this. As an introvert this book empowered me in a way I could never have before imagined. And as an expecting father I feel ready to nurture my child whatever his temperament. Thank you for this gift.
Just goes to show this world is made of all kinds of personalities each of which has great value. I also note that each person I know can express personality traits differently as they grow. Those last comments sum up the importance of taking these principles to heart and loving each one for who and what they are.
This is a great book. As an introvert, I felt as if the author was executing a spoken portrait of my psyche and behavior. The performance was also great. I have read some reviews in which some complain about the so-called "boring" tone of the narrator. Not true, in my opinion. I'm not sure what they were expecting. There is no need to dramatize this content... This was a remarkable experience.
Listening to this book was amazing. I was able to truly understand the mind of an introvert from many perspectives. The examples of how to apply this to work, life, parenting and relationships feels to be right on target. Plus the irony of listening to a book written by an introvert feels as if I have had a 10 hour conversation with someone that doesn't like to talk. Excellent book!!!!
I thought I knew everything there was to know about introverts. Decades ago I self identified myself as being a non shy introvert , sought information about them and pardoned myself and my heavily introverted family for thriving in our close but isolated world. What I did not understand was the physiology and more importantly the value and power of introverts. This was indeed intriguing and has given me some useful tools to go forward with. There were parts of this book where I found myself feeling emotional, almost teary and yet freed with permission to be how I am physiologically designed. If you are an extrovert you will also gain some useful insight because most likely if you are successful, you have an introvert in close proximity to you. You may learn the values we have in each other's lives as introverts need extroverts in their lives too.
