I find myself smack in the middle of the scale of introvert and extrovert. Probably a bit easier for me to identify with introverts so this book was instantly funny. It was the type of humor that is written seriously, you are reading along, reading along and then something totally outrageous is slipped in. It totally catches you off guard in the best way!

There are some hilarious illustrations throughout the book and I would have loved to have seen more. At times the chapters got a bit long but

You know how you read that post on that one guy's website, and you thought it was hilarious, the funniest thing you'd ever read? And then you read more of his posts, and yeah, they were funny, but the more you read, the more you were, like, "Ok, yeah, you covered that bit already" and "This is a lot like that other bit I read earlier"? And by the end, you're like, "Yeah, he was kind of funny, but it got kinda old after a while"? That right there. That's how I felt about this book. Don't get me w ...more

I thought this was one of the funniest books I've ever read. Maybe I need help.

Every so often I'll flip through it and invariably there's something there to make me laugh - even just the sub-headings, like "Putting the 'end' in 'friend'" and "Getting in touch with your inner somebody else", resonate. Or maybe you just have to have really lousy self-esteem.

As an introvert (though not particularly young or feeble) I found this book hilarious. Social interaction can be hard for some, but with this book and the "advice" it provides, it can be practically impossible!

Yay! Introverts Unite (but only for a little while before we have to go home and be alone to recharge and cuddle up with a good book)!

Short somewhat funny look at talking with strangers. It wasn't bad, but it definitely didn't seem to achieve what it was hoping for.

The man himself though has plenty of humor writing available online worth looking up.

Hilarious. I don't know if his methods work because I don't consider myself much of an introvert. Come to think I'm not even sure if they are meant to work. The book was so funny, that may have been the entire point all along.

I could count on one hand the number of times this book was actually funny. Most of the time it was tedious and often pathetic.
Witty, charming & totally Jason!

Galley, read this one at the behest of my boss. A tongue-in-cheek how-to book for those of us who are, shall we say, socially disabled.
