really liked it

This book gave me lots of insights into the two main introverts in my life, my husband and my oldest child. Most notably that introversion absolutely has a physiological basis--"innies" brains are physically different from extrovert brains, and that's just fine. Laney uses these physical differences to explain behavior that can otherwise seem off-putting. She emphasizes appreciating introverts' strengths and fostering their potential, giving advice about what won't work and what will. Having read this book, I feel empowered to better parent my introverted child.
