"If you have introvert inclinations and are doubting yourself, this is a must read. Or if you know someone who exhibits introvert symptoms, read this book before calling the shrink."
- Bhante Yogavacara Rahula, author of One Night's Shelter: An Autobiography of an American Buddhist Monk

EMBRACE THE POWER INSIDE YOU
Are you an introvert? Psychologist and introvert Laurie Helgoe reveals that more than half of all Americans are. Introverts gain energy and power through reflection and solitude. Our culture, however, is geared toward the extrovert. The pressure to enjoy parties, chatter, and interactions can lead people to think that an inward orientation is a problem instead of an opportunity.

Helgoe shows that the exact opposite is true: Introverts can capitalize on this inner source of power. INTROVERT POWER is a groundbreaking call for an introvert renaissance, a blueprint for how introverts can take full advantage of this hidden strength in daily life. Supplemented by the voices of several introverts, Helgoe presents a startling look at introvert numbers, influence, and economic might.

Revolutionary and invaluable, INTROVERT POWER includes ideas for how introverts can learn to:

Claim private space
Carve out time to think
Bring a slower tempo into daily life
Create breaks in conversation and relationships
Deal effectively with parties, interruptions, and crowds



QUIET IS MIGHT. SOLITUDE IS STRENGTH. INTROVERSION IS POWER.

Awesome title for a book. It sounds to me like the author is saying something like, "it is better to contemplate on one's feelings about what happens and on what an appropriate response would be, and indeed on what makes a response appropriate in and of itself, rather than to merely react blindly and unthinkingly to what goes on around you as if there is no core being there, no internal processes, no actual character, just an empty shell being bounced around by the viccisitudes of blind chance." At least, that's my own take! I'd love to read this book, thanks for the link Steph!

Yes I am buying the book .. along with a bunch of others. Now that the semester is over I tend to get caught up on reading and on the site and gaming and all sorts of stuff.
