The Introvert Advantage: How to Thrive in an Extrovert World

The Introvert Advantage: How to Thrive in an Extrovert World - Marti Olsen Laney This book provides a very good overview of what is, and is not, considered introversion. Introverts think differently than extroverts. Introverts take time to think before they act. Introversion is healthy and normal, but not well understood by non-introverts. Introverts are less common than extroverts. Society often rewards extroversion and sees introversion as a deficiency and a problem.Reading this book hopefully will provide you with an understanding of how introverts think and think differently, and then learn to function effectively in a world that is predominately focused on extroversion.Topics such as parenting (parenting an introverted child), relationships, handling issues in work situations, and even what vacations are enjoyed by introverts, are all touched on in this book.A very good overview, and worth reading whether you are an introvert or an extrovert who wants to understand how introverts tick!
