A new take on introverts and how they interact with various cultures, environments, and groups. Being an introvert myself, I found it an especially fun and affirming read.

Amy Perry I read about this in The Guardian! Seems like a really intersting read - especially for those of us that feel more than a little lost at parties! Lol


Vicki I'd be totally happy at parties if I could turn invisible when I hit my limit. Then I could just go lean invisibly against a wall and observe.


John I should probably give this one a read; I am a life-long, hard-core, introvert and have had to learn all sorts of coping behaviors over the years.


Vicki I think you'd really like it. It helps you realize how, and even why, introverts are often marginalized and devalued in our culture (in the west, but particularly the US), and offers some possible ways to think about and deal with that.
