"In this thought-provoking treatise on the quieter types, Dembling, the blogger behind Psychology Today's "The Introvert's Corner," proposes a wholesale rethinking of what it means to be an introvert.... Dembling's account is refreshingly candid and straightforward--"I am an introvert," she writes, "And there's not a damn thing wrong with me."
"Unlike ""Quiet"," it not only provides scientific and cultural background but also practical tips and a thorough-note of complete understanding of the introvert's nature. An introvert myself, I have never read a book that I have so truly felt myself in."
"Dembling urges introverts to embrace their need for solitude, reflection, and regeneration with no apologies. It's what makes us who we are."
"-Cleveland Plain Dealer"

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