I found this book very informative. I learned a lot about myself and others. I would recommend this to anyone who has associations with others.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has struggled with introversion in an extraverted world. Also, anyone who has an introverted relative struggl8ng with their place in this loud, confusing, and often annoying world.
To be clear, I really enjoyed this book. I think a lot of introverts living in an extrovert world will have a strong sense of familiarity with the stories.
For me, this is more of a comforting listen, rather than a book to make my life better. The author discusses at length tips for parents and teachers of introverts- these suggestions may be helpful (I have no children and am not a teacher).
I don't find this book to be particularly helpful because the central issue of being an introvert in an extrovert world is still there. I suspect that it will be more helpful to an introverted individual to pretend to be an extrovert (even at the expense of productivity) than to maximize his own potential as an introvert. This is just my own opinion, however.
Great book! Susan pulls information from numerous sources and makes a great case for the need for introverts in a culture that promotes and praises extroverts more. She puts together valuable stories that supports her book. This book has help me appreciate who I am more and accept that not enjoying a lively party or an excessive talker is ok. :-)
