    1. This little book is aimed at the introvert entrepreneur and is a collection of blog posts, Facebook contributions and articles on being successful in business when you would rather stay safely within your comfort zone of home alone with the dark chocolate, comfortable clothes and cats. Written in a peppy style suited to social media this contribution is a light weight in comparison to Susan Cain's 'Quiet' which was heavily researched and stuffed full of examples and information. There are some t [...]

    2. As an introvert who is a little lost in this extroverted world, I was excited to read this book. Now that I am done, I have mixed feelings. Buelow provides meaningful and actionable, well, insights. Her tone is open and positive, so the reader gets the impression that she is conversing directly with him or her. As I understand it, the book is a collection of Buelow's blogs, which probably accounts for the casual feel. There is something to this sort of persuasive style, although I am not particu [...]

    3. Beth Buelow nailed the challenges for introverts who are trying to apply and practice conventional business development strategies. The chapters are brief and based on blog posts so they feel personal and authentic; very little lofty business language or psychological/sociological terminology. I immediately identified with example scenarios and found myself smiling all along the way, as I recognized both my personal strengths and weaknesses in Buelow’s wonderful storytelling.The value wasn’t [...]

    4. Introverts are not shy; they don't hate people either. They simply love to be alone. The world outside, depletes or drains his/her energy; so to recharge, he/she needs to be alone.Reading the book was like reading myself. Good enough book.

    5. Have you already read The Introvert Advantage: How to Thrive in an Extrovert World and Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking? Are you looking for something new to read on the subject of introversion? You’ll probably enjoy this recent release by Beth L. Buelow.Although not as meaty as the best-sellers mentioned above, Insight contains lots of worthwhile information, both for extraverts trying to gain a better understanding of the introverts in their life and for intr [...]

    6. Great book! Very satisfying to have introverts applauded and affirmed and not viewed as inferior or needing "to be fixed," or needing to work towards being extroverted in order to be viewed more positively or qualify for meaningful employment or leadership positions. The author states "you can overcome or work through being shy, but you don't "overcome" or "recover" from being an introvert. It's not something to recover from, it's a trait to understand and honor." The author notes that she has " [...]

    7. Such an insightful book! The author, Beth Buelow, who is a certified professional coach and introvert herself, takes the shame out of being an introvert. I'm embarrassed to admit that I also believed all the typical myths that are associated with introverts. Ms. Beulow does a wonderful job at defining the characteristics of an introvert, as well as how to utilize those traits to be a happier person. It's obvious that extroverts far outnumber introverts, so the advice in this book helps the intro [...]

    8. This would probably make a great first foray into the world of introversion books, although if you've been reading them for a while, there won't be a lot of genuinely new information in there (which makes sense, I guess, since I think it's the author's first published book)Like - I think - The Introvert's Way (if I'm remembering correctly), this is less a textbook and more a series of essays/blog posts, which means it's very easy reading for the most part. This is the sort of book you can comfor [...]

    9. This book is more of a guide to those who are of the introvert nature, it also give aid to those who know introvert's and how they can help them or make their life a little bit easier.It's a good book, full of interesting ideas and things I hadn't thought about; best of all certain things just clicked for me and made me glad that I wasn't completely alone.The negative side to it was that it did read more like a blog than a book, which obviously wasn't the intent but to me that took away the spec [...]

    10. The book has good little tips for introverts who dread going to parties and business events. For example, a good insight is the first time you go to a business event, you might not know anyone but you'll meet some people. The next time you go, you might see some people you know. Each time you go, you'll know more people. Then it won't be as uncomfortable as it once was. Also instead of referring to these actions as expanding your comfort zone, the author refers to it as expanding your capacity. [...]

    11. I bought it wishing it was as insightful as Susan Cain's Quiet. While expectations are sometimes met or exceeded, this time it has--as it often does--lead to disappointment.What did this book lack? Depth. The book is structured as unconnected short essays. This structure allows, unfortunately, repetition. The book constantly argues that introversion does not equal shy, that there is nothing wrong with being an introvert, that we should not desire to change ourselves. However, lack of depth and d [...]

    12. Beth Buelow covers much of the standard territory of introversion. She does mix shyness with introversion too comfortably. Much of the advise and management techniques aren't new ideas and the content has the depth of blog posts. Like most texts on introversion, the value of this book is accessibly and that one ancedote that unlocks the realization that introversion personality choices are not faults, but just traits. Acceptance in a world of extroverted media.

    13. I loved this book! I was amazed by how much each essay sounded like it was written just for me and my unique introvert foibles. It made me laugh, it made me think, and it gave me the comforting validation that there is a community of introverts out there experiencing the same sorts of things I am.

    14. As noted by another reviewer, this book is a collection of blog postings but is a good short read. Each "chapter" is a couple pages long and you can pick it up when you have a few minutes, page thru a chapter and then put it down. Susan Cain's book is much more in-depth but this adds some good information for those trying to understand why introverts are the way they are.

    15. One of the best books I have read this year. Opened my eyes and heart to realities of being an introvert. thank you for creating this Beth.

    16. If you have introverts in your life, then you must read this! You will understand and appreciate them in a whole new way!

    17. OK focuses on practical ideas and strategies that introverts can use in business not exactly the book I had in mind from reading the title.
