Collection of topics relating to introversion. Typical of these kinds of books combining the author's personal anecdotes and descriptions of research and what it means. After having read dozens of these kinds of books over the past few years, this one underwhelmed me during the bulk of the book, but redeemed itself somewhat at the end, with some specific recommendations to parents of introverted children and a good summary. I listened to the audio and found it a bit too monotonous -- I wouldn't recommend the audio. From a business perspective, a couple of takeaways include asking for creative ideas individually before sharing with a group, giving the introverted the environment that allows for their participation. Also, there's some discussion of how open office plans don't help the introverted work.
