    The Introvert Advantage dispels common myths about introverts - they’re not necessarily shy, aloof, or antisocial - and explains how they are hardwired from birth to focus inward, so outside stimulation such as chitchat, phone calls, parties, or office meetings can easily become "too much". Most importantly, it thoroughly refutes many introverts’ belief that something is wrong with them. Instead, it helps them recognize their inner strengths - their analytical skills, ability to think outside the box, and strong powers of concentration.

    Story

    As an introvert, this book has been really insightful. I have read other books related to the subject. However, this book not only presented new information on the subject I was never aware of, for instance the reason I tend to lose a thought or my mind seems to go blank during overstimulating activities.

    This book also goes a step further by providing great ways to cope with overstimulating activities and ways to start and maintain conversation.

    This book to me is a must read for an introvert, I intend to go back and take notes from about chapter 7, to help me increase my ability to carry on conversations.


    Other note, The authors use of the term "inny" and "outty" to describe either introverts or extroverts respectively had a tendency to annoy me. Otherwise, fully recommended.

    Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, this piercing work distills 3,000 years of the history of power into 48 well-explicated laws. This bold volume outlines the laws of power in their unvarnished essence, synthesizing the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun-tzu, Carl von Clausewitz, and other great thinkers.

    Story

    Not for the squeamish, it is a great listen and you learn a bit about how some other people apply this to the world.

    The author wrote this in a way that made it seem like everything to do with power requires deception, which I don't agree with, but if you are able to see the value of the principles outlined with or without the "inherent need" for deception, I think their's a lot to be gained.
