Insightful, heady, game changing, and totally worth sharing. I discovered my own pattern of seeking introverts as intimate partners despite being a classic extrovert. I get now why that is, what the barriers which caused friction, and what I can do moving forward. Fantastic book.
I've taken MBTI and Firo-B assessments and had explanations of them from organisational behaviour experts which didn't give me anything like the deep insights that I got from this book.
My wife and I are both introverts, as are our children, and I feel that we understand ourselves and our family better thanks to this book. I also got really actionable advice for living in a society with an extrovert ideal. Sometimes I felt that there was a little bit of extrovert bashing, but I had to challenge myself: was I simply sticking to the societal norm where my style is undervalued? In the end I had a more nuanced view of my own strengths and weaknesses. I would strongly recommend this book to extroverts and introverts, both adolescents and adults.
I think this is a great book for anyone to read because whether you are an introvert or not a lot of people you know and interact with in the world are. This book has given me a lot of insight on myself and my children. Thank you.
This was a decent book providing perspective on how different people approach the world. I'm not sure how scientific this was; it was perhaps more of an investigation or survey into other people's works on extraversion/introversion. definitely worth a read especially if you're am introvert.

I love this book and I definitely recommend it to a friend, I like the way the Susan Cain explains introverts are as normal as loud people, specially when about one third to a half population are introverts even they don't recognise or don't accept to be an introvert. I think she makes a good balance between both personalities and makes us understand that it's ok being a quiet person no matter how much other people push us to be talkative and no matter how much society thinks wants us to be in the same room all the time.
If I had to describe this book I would say is about tolerance and understanding other people.
It's my first time whit this topic.
She reads as calm and relaxed as if she was an introvert, I love her performance.
A wonderfully rich book clearly painstakingly researched. A must read for anyone who wants to understand people.
The choice of reader was superb to fit the information being read.
l enjoyed the content and the narrator. I will listen to this book many timed in the future.
