Summary

At least one out of four people prefers to avoid the limelight, tends to listen more than they speak, feels alone in large groups, and requires lots of private time to restore their energy. They're introverts, and here is the book to help them boost their confidence while learning strategies for successfully living in an extrovert world.
After dispelling common myths about introverts-they're not necessarily shy, aloof, or antisocial - The Introvert Advantage explains the real issues. Introverts are hardwired from birth to focus inward, so outside stimulation - chitchat, phone calls, parties, office meetings - can easily become "too much."
The Introvert Advantage dispels introverts' belief that something is wrong with them and instead helps them recognize their inner strengths - their analytical skills, ability to think outside the box, and strong powers of concentration. It helps listeners understand introversion and shows them how to determine where they fall on the introvert/extrovert continuum.
It provides tools to improve relationships with partners, kids, colleagues, and friends, offering dozens of tips, including 10 ways to talk less and communicate more, eight ways to showcase your abilities at work, how to take a child's temperament temperature, and strategies for socializing. Finally, it shows how to not just survive, but thrive - how to take advantage of the introvert's special qualities to create a life that's just right for the introvert temperament, to discover new ways to expand their energy reserves, and even how, when necessary, to confidently become a temporary extrovert.

The book had a lot of good pointers, was well-writ

The book had a lot of good pointers, was well-written and well-organized. What I took from this book is that we, as introverts, must develop the art of listening. Listening = knowledge. And if we can't wow them with our effusive personality, we need to impress them in other ways.

Wonderful guide

There is a chapter about interviewing, also difficult for introverts, which could be helpful for anyone in this particular situation. It helps listeners understand introversion and shows them how to determine where they fall on the introvert/extrovert continuum.

Well written

The Introverts Advantage is a light hearted inviting guide discussing all the ins and outs of being an introvert. Of course extroverts are covered too but they aren't the main attraction. I am excellent public speaker, really enjoy it, the meet and greet after (as the author says) is a 'trial'.
