A good beginning examination but perhaps too hastily researched without thorough attribution to people like Ernest Becker and Viktor Frankl, the originators of some of the ideas mentioned. The corporate "self-help" sections were off putting and perhaps the least well thought out.

Highly recommended for anyone who thinks they are weird because they don’t like being around people. This book explains the diversity of human nature and how so much of the external world is built just for the loud people. It will make you realize you’re not that weird after all.

If you are an introvert reading this book will be like a validation of your whole life.

If you know an introvert, reading it will help you understand their behavior.

I wish that everyone I knew would read this book.
