For anyone who loved Susan Cain's Quiet, comes this practical manifesto sharing the joys of introversion... This clever and pithy audiobook challenges introverts to take ownership of their personalities...with quiet strength. Sophia Dembling asserts that the introvert's lifestyle is not "wrong" or lacking, as society or extroverts would have us believe. Through a combination of personal insights and psychology, The Introvert's Way helps and encourages introverts to embrace their nature, to respect traits they may have been ashamed of and reframe them as assets. You're not shy; rather, you appreciate the joys of quiet. You're not antisocial; instead, you enjoy recharging through time alone. You're not unfriendly, but you do find more meaning in one-on-one connections than large gatherings. By honoring what makes them unique, this astute and inspiring audiobook challenges introverts to "own" their introversion, igniting a quiet revolution that will change how they see themselves and how they engage with the world.… (mer)

I was recently reminded that life's too short to persist in reading books you hate. Even worse, I am getting nothing out of this one. Very generalised mumbles and grumbles with little substance to sink teeth into. Susan Cain's "Quiet" is far superior in all respects. ( )

I found this to be uneven. I thought it would be more of a self-help book, but it's more of a manifesto. If you've never read anything on introversion but think you might be an introvert, this is probably a good book to pick up. The author discusses her various experiences at work, at parties and social gatherings, in childhood and while observing children, utilizing social networks, etc and how introverts might interact in those situations differently.

It tended to drag here and there, although I could identify with a lot of what the author wrote. Some of it seemed repetitive (interaction in group settings, whether it's at school or at work or at parties) and just a rehashing of how introverts deal with each situation. If you have read various books (Quiet, The Introvert Advantage, etc.) there probably isn't much that's new here. However, I did find some of the reminders towards the end of the book (about being sure to get people time, why it's okay to be who you are) helpful.

It's not a terrible book, but I don't recommend it by itself if you're new to introversion. I personally recommend 'The Introvert Advantage' as a starting point, and perhaps buying this one on sale as a complement. ( )

A very refreshingly humorous book (if I may use that term). This book has a very light way of dealing with the issues of introversion compared to the other sombre books that I have read on the subject matter. Sophia teaches introverts to be proud of their introversion.

I especially like her humour. Some of the tidbits I really enjoyed were:

"We didn't know that you were an introvert. We simply thought you were a bitch" and how introverts can use "diarrhoea" as an excuse to leave a boring extrovertish party. I also had a good laugh and thoroughly enjoyed myself.

Sophia deals with almost all of the issues that plague introverts including the need to make friends, partying, raising introvert children, working in a "privacy sucking cubicle", exercising, etc.

She also dismisses some of the very important claims of psychologists that introverts seem to be less happy than extroverts. The problem with these kinds of claims being that extroverts are likely to choose extreme answers. This means that if an extrovert is happy, she is likely to circle 5 on a scale of 1-5 whereas if this is true of an introvert, she is likely to circle 3 or 4 NOT because she is less happy but because she is very likely to choose a balanced answer.

I also like the Irish bits of the book especially how extroverts party when they go weeeeeeeee....

Some reviewers are quick to jump and compare this book to Susan Cain's Quiet: the power of introverts in a world that can't stop talking". I feel that this is a bit unfair. I believe that we, introverts, should support each other in expressing our ideas in writing and in Susan Cain's words "support a Quiet Revolution".

A quick, easy read. Lots of very short chapters written in a very breezy style. In fact they read like blog posts, which is unsurprising given that she has long maintained a blog about introversion.

I found many of the many more thoughts that she mentions to be familiar ones, but at the same time they were revealed in the book as though they are all self-evidently introverted feelings. While it was satisfying to see that someone else has knows about such feelings, I consider a number of them to be rather less than respectable and in fact I'm a pretty fucked up human being. So I'm not convinced on her say-so that all of them are indeed signals of introversion.

That said, one of the points she made was something I had not paid much attention to before, which is that in descriptions of extro and introversion, extroversion is always presented as normative and introversion as a deviation: the consequence of having poorly developed extroverted behaviors rather than a legitimate characteristic in its own right. For whatever reason that caught my attention and is something I can't not notice now. ( )

I was unimpressed and bored. I began to scan, and then simply quit reading. While there were some interesting thoughts, it seemed more of a rant. The author did not seem comfortable inside her own introvert nature.
