This book gives a good overview of the psychological features that are classically called "introversion." As an introvert, I found it interesting, affirming (Hey! I experience that!), as well and informative. My favorite parts were definitely her overview of research of the neurological correlates to traits common in introverts, and some of her tips for introverts on how to get by in a largely extrovert culture. Some of them, I already use, but it's always nice to have other tricks in the bag. This is a very broad book and does not cover one area of psychology, neuropsychology, and neuroscience of introversion altogether. It's an easy, enjoyable, non-fiction read.
