Book Description

4 Dec 2012
This clever and pithy book 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 honouring what makes them unique, this astute and inspiring book challenges introverts to own their introversion, igniting a quiet revolution that will change how they see themselves and how they engage with the world.

So enjoy picking up this 'easy to read' book on a regular basis and reading about why I feel and behave the way I do. No longer do I worry that I am different from others around me. This book has made me realise that it is not just ok to be me but actually it is great to be me. Us introverts have so much to offer that extroverts dont. We are sensitive, thoughtful, kind, good listeners and quite often very intelligent. We dont need to have others around us all the time and are lucky enough to enjoy our own company so rarely feel lonely. We are not unsociable or shy but prefer to spend quality time with a few close friends rather than spend lots of time with large groups of noisy people who talk a lot of trivial nonsense. So refreshing, if you get any of what I have written above then this book is for you. Thank you so so much Sophia Dembling for this inspirational book

5.0 out of 5 stars Introverts should lap it up. 26 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you're looking for an in-depth psychological treatise on introversion, look elsewhere. If you want practical suggestions for how to get on in life while staying true to your introverted self, however, this book is well worth buying.

I was already familiar with Sophia Dembling's writing style from following her blog for several years,which is what prompted me to buy this book. I wasn't disappointed.

In short, if you're an introvert, buy this book. If you're not, buy it for an introverted friend!

3.0 out of 5 stars Wish washy self-affirmation 10 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book hoping to provide insight into a side of my personality I am only recently beginning to accept and after reading almost every review for every similar product decided this would approach the subject in my prefered way; inspirational yet quantitive. Whilst I enjoy some of the content and the author draws on both statistic and scientific evidence, for the most part this is based on her own personal experiences and feelings regarding the subject. Much of which I found didn't apply to myself. It also repeats itself on several occasions; I actually thought I was experiencing deja vu at one point. On the plus side it did goes some way to helping me embrace my personality. Although one month after reading I have almost completely forgotten it and don't think I will read it again.

4.0 out of 5 stars I wish I had understood introversion years ago 4 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As an introvert, I think I have gone through 69 years of life vaguely wondering "what is wrong with me". This book has brought a new perspective - " I'm an introvert, and that is great !" Introversion is explained as a difference but not a handicap. Indeed, many very successful people are introverts.

To be critical though, the book is rather repetitive. A text two thirds the length would have been more readable.

2.0 out of 5 stars very repetitive message 29 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
While this book provides some good insight into the life of an introvert I found the same messages being repeated over and over again. It kind of feels like the book was being stretched out. Chapters are short also! It's a shame because the writing style was quite nice.

I also couldn't help but feel it portrayed a very narrow view of extroverts. Social butterflies, shallow relationships, meaningless conversations etc while exuding the sense that introverts are smarter cos they are 'deeper' thinkers.

Relied heavily on anecdotal evidence e.g. "One introvert said this ... ", "another introvert said that ...". This reader felt a bit more scientific evidence or theory would have strengthened the book significantly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!! 1 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an amazing book, which really tackles many of the challenges and stereotypes that I face and I'm almost positive many other introverted people face. Its refreshing to hear someone who is like me and speak in such a confident, enlighting and humurous way - definitely makes me even more proud of who I am!

I think this book is great if your confused on your identity, if you want to get an insight on an introverts perspective on life or if you want to understand a loved one better. Its just really good even if u want to just read a good book! I got it today and ive already read half of it - soon to be all of it haha.

One of the best books I have read in ages (along with 'A Natural History of the Senses by Diane Ackerman- amazing)

*Buy It!! =)
