This book changed everything for me! I picked up this book in a small, independent bookshop in Berkeley and casually perused the table of contents. I was intrigued. After reading the first sentence, I knew that I must have this book! I took it to my favorite cafe, read the first chapter and everything suddenly became clear: I am an Introvert! And I learned that it is fine to be an introvert. I’m not asocial or withdrawn or excessively shy or a relationship-phobe. I’m an introvert! Laurie Helgoe (also an introvert) discusses the characteristics shared by introverts, how different societies view introverts and how every introvert can be successful in his or her career and relationship. Seriously, this is a great book for introverts and the extraverts who love them!
