  • Great book

    By CTW123
    This book helps you understand introverts!
  • Wonderful

    By Siwithlove
    I love this book!! The author supports nearly everything she shares with a study or fact to back it up, too! Very encouraging for people who feel like they don't quite fit in, and that they are too quiet. She reminds us that there are a lot of valuable things about being an introvert.
  • Amazed

    By Topsy056
    one of my favorite books. very informative and comprehensible. well done!
  • It was tiring.

    By efcos
    It’s a good book, based on lots of research and its credibility is unquestionable. Yet, for me, it was a constant comparison between introverts and extroverts that got very tiring. At times I felt the point of the book was to see how good it is to be an introvert and how bad it is to be an extrovert. Although it boosted my confidence and I feel now I understand certain things that I do unconsciously, I really felt like i didn’t have to go through the entire book to get it. It got tiring and a bit boring after a couple of hours in.
  • Price Gouging Much?...

    By jtharrice
    Um, yeah Apple, I bought the book on Kindle for $3.36. Wanted to get it here, but with the whole $11.99….well, you know, not cool. Trying to understand right now.
  • Someone understands!!!

    By Pastor gas
    I loved this book mostly because I am an introvert myself. I had always been told I was too quiet, and that I should "come out of my shell". I was feeling pretty bad about myself, until I found this book and found that I am an introvert. I liked reading the stories of people who started out as quiet geeks and ended up starting big things like Apple and Rosa Parks. While I was reading, I thought, "wow, these people were just like me." It made me feel warm and fuzzy.
  • Could not put it down

    By sunsetlily
    I already knew I was an introvert and knew several of the unique research behind introvertedness, but this book still managed to captivate me and introduce me to a myriad of knowledge I had never heard. Not a day passes since I have read this that I don’t bring up this book in casual conversation with people; it has so many interesting facts about human behaviors!
  • Great for Everyone!

    By ElizaTaurus
    I have felt uncomfortable in my life because of not wanting to speak up. I now understand why. This book has helped me to accept who I am. I highly recommend it to all who are or know introverts!
  • Very insightful.

    By P. Conley
    Makes you look at things from a much different perspective.
  • Thank you!

    By D.A.H., Jr.
    Currently reading the book. So far, it’s worth it.
