Review: The Introvert’s Way: Living a Quiet Life in a Noisy World

The Introvert's Way: Living a Quiet Life in a Noisy WorldThe Introvert’s Way: Living a Quiet Life in a Noisy World by Sophia Dembling
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another of the increasing number of books written about introverts by introverts, this book particularly looks at the way in which introverts tend to act in the world, and how they can continue to avoid the usual labels attached to them by the large number of people who still do not grasp the reality of introverts.

I found myself nodding my head over and over again as I worked my way through the very short and pithy chapters, each looking at a particular aspect of behaviour as experienced by introverts. Each chapter also looks at ways in which introverts can manage to live in a world that still lives with the understanding that extroverts – and extroversion – are the norm, and introverts are, therefore, not.

For introverts, this book will reaffirm what they know to be innate to their own identity, and how to honour that while continuing to live in the world. For extroverts, this book will help them to understand the way in which introverts work and, therefore, to be a little more accommodating the introverts they encountered.

I highly recommend this book.

I should mention this was the first book I had read via an e-book reader. I had resisted the experience for a long long time, but my experience has made me a strong convert.
