Publisher Comments:

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 readers 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, 8 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.

Synopsis:

After dispelling myths about introverts, the author explains the real issues. Introverts are hardwired from birth to focus inward, so outside stimulation can easily become too much. The book is for all introverts and people associated with them.

Synopsis:

For the 25 percent of people who are introverts, this book reveals the latest scientific research on temperament and offers dozens of introvert coping strategies for love, marriage, parenthood, work, and friendship.

I found this to be a very useful resource for an introvert like myself. It has examples of how to navigate social, personal, and work relationships without losing oneself. The best part about it, though, is that it is very positive about introverts' attributes and contributions to society.

This book is an "ah-ha!" offering information and insight that makes so much sense. Laney describes the concepts of introversion and extroversion so clearly and shows a deep understanding of what it can mean to be an introvert in an overwhelmingly (and often overwhelming) extroverted world. I especially appreciate her tips for introverts who may struggle in social situations gracefully navigated by extroverts. The Introvert Advantage is a powerful affirmation and tool to those who may feel isolated and view their introverted personality as a disadvantage.
