it was amazing

Thank you, Susan Cain, for writing this remarkable book! As an introvert who has always been regarded as not only quiet, but also timid and weak, this book is very refreshing. It puts into words what many introverts know intuitively; strength does not have to be loud, in your face, or aggressive. Strength and conviction can present themselves quietly without sacrificing effectiveness. Through impressive research, Ms. Cain clearly demonstrates the importance of both personality types and the value of introversion. I only wish that I could have read this book when I was younger so that I would have been more confident and accepting of my own nature. After reading it now, I do feel that I can better articulate the importance of my role in society and take pride in the contributions that introverts have made throughout history.

Demelza "I only wish that I could have read this book when I was younger" - absolutely agree. I feel that I'm only realizing now that it's OK to be quieter, and to want to spend time alone. There is nothing wrong with not being involved in a gazillion extracurricular activities, or in preferring to study alone, or take a walk alone.
