"Laurie Helgoe's "Introvert Power" is The Bhagavad Gita for introverts....Laurie fans the embers of wisdom in each of us to honor yearnings that serve as both compass and anchor. I'm now giving myself permission to get a lock for my office door and replace my reading chair with something that would delight my younger self. I owe it to her. --Mary Hershey, author for children & young adults, co-creater of Shrinking Violets, Marketing for Introverts

I bought this book because I was struggling to understand why I felt differently to my friends - they wanted to meet up and go out as much as possible, sing and dance etc, whereas I'm happy enjoying my own company, reading, or just doing my own thing. It was really getting to me why I wasn't enjoying all the things everyone else seemed to enjoy. I felt like I didn't fit in. But this book helped me to understand that I'm not weird, I'm an introvert. I would recommend it to anyone who feels like they don't fit in when out socialising, or who feels awkward at parties and wants to go home before everyone else. It helps you to accept the way you are instead of trying to fight it and feeling bad about yourself when you can't fake being an extrovert. It's been therapy for me. I'm glad I'm an introvert and this book helped me realise that.
Although this was the first book I have read on Introversion I would nonetheless recommend it to a fellow Introvert who needs guidance or anyone who wishes to gain insight into the depths of an Introverted personality.
Also, it's nice to know you're not alone.
I developed long forgotten creativity just by following this new acceptance and allowing myself the time inside I need and long for unabashedly, which in turn boosted my confidence and sense of self worth. I then took this acceptance to some get-togethers and managed to feel much more self-respect and centredness than I was previously used to.
I have not finished the book yet because I'm still following the wave of interconnected events that were sparked by my beginning to come home and feel more than ok about it.
It has not fixed my life, it has enhanced it already. There is much reference to the USA and virtually none to the UK and one gets a sense of an individuals perspective of an almost biased nature effected by the authors life experiences that may vary from others and still I gratefully received the messages that clearly related to me with ease and I will enjoy to continue reading this book.
