I read a little bit of this, and I found a few things that resonated, but mostly what I realized is that I am not a "self-help books" type of person. I've never read one all the way through. Probably that says more about me than the fact that I picked it up in the first place, but I won't speculate about that!

Got some really great information from this book. Lots of insight - except for that recommendation for listening to Bill Cosby audiobooks or routines. Gonna pass on that one.

If you're an introvert, or deal with us regularly, I'm sure you'll get something out of this book.

Helpful in getting a handle on how to best deal with one of my sons, but way longer than it needed to be. Fairly repetitive.

Wow. Just wow.

I learned a lot about how my brain works, specifically how it works differently from extroverted folks' brains. This book is also full of lots of tips on how to thrive and be yourself in our extrovert-biased society. She describes many of the things that are normal for introverts, based just on how our brains are wired - in these descriptions, I found SO MANY things that I've always thought were really, deeply, wrong with me. And hey, look at that. Not wrong with me at all. Normal for an introvert! Similar experience with a lot of her tips. Many (but not all) of the tips are things I've already figured out and have been doing to various degrees for many years. Some of these things, I've always felt like a freak for doing. I'm working on changing the way I think about all of this. The way I think about me.

I strongly recommend this book to all of my introverted family and friends. The more introverted you are, the more I recommend it. It might not be a bad read for my extrovert friends, either. Have a peek at what we may not be able to tell you about ourselves. :)

Life-changing. If I can retain it. :)
