Like many, I have spent most of my life believing that my introverted traits made me broken. I have excelled in areas at work only to receive bonuses with the explanation "you are doing it all wrong, but keep it up because you continue to beat all sales records." I have been written up for my soft spoken demeanor and passed up for promotions for not being outgoing enough. As a child, I was grounded from reading as a punishment for not socializing. As an adult, I am tired of feeling like something is wrong with me even when I get it right because I did it differently. More importantly, I want to empower my children in their temperaments and embrace their strengths. This book has left me feeling empowered to be a better advocate for myself and for my children.
this book covers the concepts of introversion and extroversion very well and the impact our society has on young minds as they develop and grow into adulthood. it has helped me feel more comfortable with my own temperament and social habits. definitely would recommend this book!!!
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 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.
