Being an introvert in a cut-throat management industry where everybody is desperate to "climb to the top" I have always been at the back seat. People all around me just talk, all the time, most of the time just rubbish but they talk and in the end get noticed. That has been the case everywhere, school, college, Group discussion, work, parties, everywhere. I have always struggled and am still struggling to "fit in" to be precise.
This world has always been pro-extroverts and introverts have suffered unless they found the perfect place and profession for them. The book for the most part only explains and acknowledges and craze for extroversion in this world. It also explains the cause of it and to some extent the way out of it. Well actually there is no way out of it. The world is this way and there is nothing you can do but adapt to it by pushing yourself every now and then and also giving yourself some space and time for yourself to recharge, basically to strike a balance. If you are an introvert and struggling to fit in then this book is a must read for you. It will not help you but it will validate your thoughts about it. Here are a couple of quotes for you from the book:
"Don't think of introversion as something that needs to be cured...Spend your free the way you like, not the way you think you're supposed to.”
“There's zero correlation between being the best talker and having the best ideas.”
