Jul 30, Abbey rated it it was amazing Shelves: psychology-and-brain-science , favorites , multiple-readings. This book describes my inner life so well and so compassionately that it feels as if I finally find myself defended and acquitted before a jury and culture of extroverts.

It makes me feel valued for my strength of a contemplative, observational life rather than being misjudged as snobbish, socially withdrawn, or too bookish. I get weary of Facebook's judgmental This book describes my inner life so well and so compassionately that it feels as if I finally find myself defended and acquitted before a jury and culture of extroverts.

I get weary of Facebook's judgmental count of friends and posts and status updates that recount a frenetic pace of life.

Here's the status update I want to post: 'I'm busy thinking interesting thoughts and would enjoy a long conversation without the interruptions of your many electronic devices. Until we have time for a meaningful conversation, please leave me alone. View all 5 comments. May 26, Karen rated it it was amazing. If I could have given this book ten stars, I would have. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say this is the best nonfiction book I have ever read. If you are an introvert, or know an introvert, this book is a must read.

It's like the author has been living inside my head for my entire life. I can't begin to explain how throughly and utterly she gets it. What's so surprising is we comprise a little more than half of the population!

I always thought I was in some small minority. This book teac If I could have given this book ten stars, I would have. This book teaches you that it's okay to hate parties, and we don't need to apologize for hating parties.

I am comfortable in my own skin. I don't get bored, and I'm not afraid to be alone with myself. If I get bored, it's usually when I'm stuck in a large group with people trying to out do the other talking. I have actually had people ask me if I got bored or scared while camping alone. No, why would I?

To be alone walking a trail with just me and my dog is pure heaven. Travel is especially wonderful, because you can be completely yourself and just view the world around you. The author towards the end of the book said, "Introverts have remained introverts despite incredible pressures to adapt.

Wonderful book and I highly recommend it! I wish I'd been given this book 20 years ago. I've been fighting this thing called "introversion" as if it was a disease - wrong approach, I see it now. Not that I ever tried to fit in This is not a self-help book. There are no formulas. This is about acceptance, thriving and celebrating who you are. I am completely and truly amazed at what I read because I kept thinking "hey, that's me" and I said it in nearly every page.

The author blames American cult I wish I'd been given this book 20 years ago. The author blames American culture over and over, but truly, it's everywhere in the West, at least. I'm in Portugal and it's no different. I truly never met anyone like me: who dislikes parties, chit chat and hanging out with many friends. No wonder I opened a bookshop now closed, unfortunately. I placed myself in a position where I could connect with who people really were and get to talk about books.

I loved the people I met there - great characters - and it's nice to meet some of them now on the street and hear them say they miss me and they miss talking to me. I have kept some in my close circle of friends, of course. They know who I am and accept me fully. I have to go read other people's reviews and see what other introverts are saying. I feel like giving the author a hug right now. I might edit this later. View 2 comments.

I owe a ton of thank-yous to the author, Laurie Helgoe. This book surprised me by being more than what I wanted out of a "self-help book" about my introversion - it helped me to understand myself and it helped me to love myself better.

I never fully understood why I felt bored or withdrawn during some conversations, why a rush of activity and movement seems to flood me so badly I actually panic, or why I crave alone time a lot, apparently more than most people aka more than I should And wors I owe a ton of thank-yous to the author, Laurie Helgoe. And worst of all, why I feel so painfully guilty about feeling those things. This book taught me more about accepting who I am, tuning out those very painfully false assumptions in our culture, and finding a balance between my desires and society's expectations, while never sacrificing my personal comfort at the same time.

Thank goodness I found this book! Sep 07, Paloma Etienne rated it liked it Shelves: creativity. Well, I found the magic of this book at the beginning, but to be honest I'd say that two thirds of the book are really redundant, I'm sorry to be so blunt and harsh about it.

Enough said about introverts not liking to go to parties, mate, it did my head in. Now, the book does dally on a certain whiff of self-help babble, grrr, but the core o Well, I found the magic of this book at the beginning, but to be honest I'd say that two thirds of the book are really redundant, I'm sorry to be so blunt and harsh about it.

I am not into the "you go girl! What did it do for me?
