    At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking, reading to partying; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over brainstorming in teams. Although they are often labeled "quiet," it is to introverts that we owe many of the great contributions to society--from van Gogh’s sunflowers to the invention of the personal computer.

    Thorough, inspiring, and comforting for any introvert who's grown up feeling misunderstood and awkward. I feel more comfortable in my own skin since reading this book.

    Story

    As a self-employed artist and busy stay at home mom and homemaker, I found the first half of the book to be extremely helpful. The second half seemed geared more towards white collar office workers and large company executives and went beyond my needs.

  • The Happiness Advantage: The Seven Principles of Positive Psychology That Fuel Success and Performance at Work

    Conventional wisdom holds that if we work hard we will be more successful, and if we are more successful, then we’ll be happy. If we can just find that great job, win that next promotion, lose those five pounds, happiness will follow. But recent discoveries in the field of positive psychology have shown that this formula is actually backward: Happiness fuels success, not the other way around. When we are positive, our brains become more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient, and productive at work.
