I know a lot of people out there are head over heels for this book however, it wasn't exactly life-changing for me. Some people might find it hard to believe, but I am actually very much an introvert. I had to work very hard to get to a place where I felt it was okay to speak up at meetings. When I go to a conference - no matter where it is held - I'm the person who just wants to sit in the hotel and read at the end of the day. I do not like crowds and would rather be at home with my hubby than out on the town with a group. That being said, I think my biggest issue with this book was the portrayal of extroverts. I found at least the first 1/3 of the book to be very anti-extrovert, rather than pro-introvert and it was kind of hard for me to swallow. I think the final bit about schools and parenting was my favorite.
