A refreshed and updated edition of the 17k+ selling book with great reviews A self-help book for introverts, treating introversion not as a hurdle to overcome but a personal attribute to embrace. Unlike another book in the category, The Introvert Advantage, this title tells readers not how to adapt and blend in, but how to thrive as they are. It doesn't focus on extroverts and how to become like them, but how to take advantage of the fact that introversion is an opportunity and not a weakness. It also talks about how readers can become authentically and confidently introverted, discusses society's ideas about what is healthy re: intro and extroversion, and look at America's values in contrast with a society like Japan. America is reportedly a nation of extroverts, but the latest research shows that more than half of Americans are in fact introverts and of course many introverts like to read, and will be drawn to this title. Helgoe will strengthen the draw of this book by addressing the huge variation of introverts, detailing the different shades of introversion. Introvert Power will become a shelf staple as the go-to guide for introverts that's practical and proactive.
