I find myself to be a bit of an ambivert, though through reading this I discovered I do lean more towards introversion than extroversion. The insight Susan Cain provides is powerful and on point. This audio book is a great listen. Good flow, great articulation. When I would rewind, it was only because I wanted to hear again the point she was making (because they were so good)! I would highly recommend this to anyone.
This book was a great insight into my shy and reserved students! I now have some general understanding, and actual tools to deploy in the classroom.
Maybe if they were interested in the subject.

No, too long
Very interesting insight into the mindset of an introvert. People interested in psychology and how introverts behave and think will like this book.
I am married to an introvert and I always feel like introverts are somewhat misunderstood, or undervalued. This book hits the nail on the head and not only explains introverts better, but how they are absolutely useful in their social and interpersonal and introverted ways in all walks of life. I love how she explained the history of when extroverts and an outgoing personality became somewhat of a prized possession and what we should all be striving for, but how really that's not the ideal we should be striving for because if we embrace our true nature and character – whether that be introvert or extrovert, we are so much better off. We need to value and recognize what introverts bring to the table and see the differences as wonderful strengths that contribute rather than something we need to be changing. I seriously think that everyone should read this book because we all know introverts and this helped me to understand them better and recognize what a wonderful differences we have.
This book has helped me recognize many of my traits not as weaknesses but as misunderstood strengths. I now feel like my style is valid.
I was so enjoying the authors insights I didn't want the book to end!
great book to help extroverts and ambiverts understand the the introverts in their lives. provides some of the science and coping mechanisms to help smooth out those relationships should you be an extrovert or ambivert (which i am).
This book takes an in depth look at the mind of introverts. It compares and contrasts the similarities and differences of introverts and extroverts. Spending time breaking the stereotypical molds that tend to push introverts further into the corners we are so comfortable in.
