Not only does Susan Cain do a thorough job of explaining the mechanisms of introversion and extroversion, but she offers many helpful strategies for thriving as an introvert in an extrovert - dominated society. I am sharing this book with all my introvert knowledge - seeker friends.
Amazing compilation of knowledge, sources, and unintuitive insights. This book explains and affirms a lot of the issues people on the quieter end of the spectrum face everyday.
I really appreciated the reader of this book. She had a very calm voice, but was audible at the same time. Great insight into the introverted personality.
I'd listen again to glean more insight that I missed the first time.
It was very helpful to learn about our culture's "extrovert worship".
Kathe Mazur has a very pleasing voice & style.
This book helped me understand a lot about myself and my strengths.
Lending legitimacy to the introvert way of being as a natural part of the spectrum is something valuable to each of us, our teachers, partners, friends and families. Although valued historically and even now for its cultural and scientific benefits, our culture has superficially derided introversion
to the detriment of all and the unnecessary suffering of many.
This book was recommended to me along time ago. It was very thought-provoking made me think a lot about my own children and their personalities. I realize I need to relax and let them be there selves. Because I listen though I was confused as to what type of person I am I think a mixture of both. I wish I would've read this book years ago would help me to understand different types of personalities including my relationship with my own husband. Although it did feel like at some points that extrovert is bad introvert is good, but maybe that's how introverts feel every day in the mainstream world. Something to think about.
