Read The Introvert's Way: Living a Quiet Life in a Noisy World Online Free - Introversion Is a Gift.
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 honoring 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.

"I have to admit, there were times over the course of my life...when even I wondered if maybe I were some kind of coldhearted snob. Why was I so reluctant to go to parties and why did I want to leave them shortly after arriving? Why did I get annoyed if a date with a friend turned into a group ou...

This is a nice, peppy book that seems designed to make introverts feel better about themselves. At least, it made me feel better.
Dembling, who writes a blog for Psychology Today, delves into research about the differences between extroverts and introverts. I especially appreciated the information...

Chapter 27: "Fact 1: Some People Are Boring. Fact 2: You Are Not Obligated to Listen to Them."
This book is boring. Dembling writes about introversion almost exclusively from within her own experience of that trait. There's a sprinkling of science, but mostly The Introvert's Way is a memoir of Dem...

I wish I can quote almost half of the book. Sophia Dembling's The Introvert's Way: Living a quiet life in a noisy world was sharp, witty, and an easy read with a touch of research, psychology, insights from introverted people around the world, and her perspective of introversion, which is the hea...

The Introvert's Way is a collection of Dembling's blog posts about introversion. It's engaging, but she writes as the royal "we" which I found distracting. No one has the authority to speak for introverts as a group. Right, introverts? *crickets*
I loved how she cleared up some rather major misund...

'The Introvert's Way' makes a nice companion to Susan Cain's 'Quiet', another book about the glory of being an introvert, though it is also great as a stand-alone title. (I only mention it in conjunction with the latter because I read and loved them both) Dembling doesn't make the case that intro...

My extrovert wife and our two extrovert sons bought this for me for Christmas almost as a joke. There is a lot of truth in what the author says: there is nothing wrong with introverts. My introvert son gets to read read it next. Then maybe my annoyingly extrovert mother and brother.
There is one t...

4.5 stars. I got this from my library, but this is the type of book that I will be buying and rereading so I can highlight specific passages that really spoke to me. The author did a fantastic job of addressing every aspect and type of introversion. No one got left out! A must-read for anyone who...

This is the second book I've read on the subject of introversion. I was lead to this book through Amazon recommendations after I read "Quiet: The Power of Introverts In A World That Can't Stop Talking" by Susan Cain. I loved that book and I always knew myself to be an introvert but had never done...
