Written in bursts of easily absorbed clips, her book makes for easy, entertaining, and delightful reading.

The only thing that I found disappointing was the book was at times a bit repetitive.

I've just read Introverts at Ease: An Insider's Guide to a Great Life on Your Terms.
I'm finding it easy to read with its brief, useful chapters yet, as an extrovert, the insight I'm getting into my introvert husband, family, friends and colleagues is profound. I never realized there was actually a physiological difference between extrovert and introvert. I'm gaining much more appreciation for introvert strengths, and more compassion for the needs an introvert has. And also, for my own needs as an extrovert living with an introvert. For example, one thing I see now is that what I've sometimes thought of as obstinacy, was simply a desire for down time or quiet to replenish. This book is already helping me be clearer and more effective in my relationships with the introverts in my life. That's so wonderful.

After purchasing this book I feel compelled to write a more critical review for those who may be considering purchasing it. First you must understand this is not a book but a collection of articles previously published. Since each one was meant to stand alone they are highly repetitive with concepts explained over and over again for each new article. This format also lacks the depth I hoped for. The articles briefly mention a finding in research on introverts, and then describe how the author's experiences relate to it. If you are interested in how and why introverts are different, this book isn't for you.

My other issue is that despite being an introvert I just can't relate to many of the examples and strategies. I believe these are based largely on the author's experiences, and many are related to other personality tendencies beside introversion. For example, in one article she discusses how she is not a morning person and needs to wake up slowly. She ties this to introverts' physiological differences. However I know several strong introverts (including my husband) who wake up energized and ready to go enjoy their quiet time before the rest of the world gets up.

Relaxing and going slowly to manage your energy is a recurring theme that you may or may not relate to. I'm NOT a morning person either, but when I get up and get moving quickly I'm much happier and more energized throughout the day. You can be an introvert and not resonate with this author's reflections - just don't assume this book is for all introverts.

For introverts it will confirm their life experiences; for extroverts in relationship with an introvert it will provide much needed insight to understand and appreciate the real, often physiological differences. Nancy Okerlund writes from her own personal experience as a model, telling stories from her life that are revealing examples. She also refers to the latest research that helps explain why introverts experience life differently. The structure of the book, a collection of essays, makes this an easy read. I jumped back and forth picking stories to read. In a U.S. culture that puts extrovert on a pedestal as the superior model, now there is a real place for introverts to stand, acknowledging the strengths and contribution they make.

Format: Paperback
A must-read for Introverts (and Extroverts who don't understand Introverts) at home or at work.
Author Nancy Okerlund shows you how to get more energy, have a better work/life balance, obtain relief from the over-stimulation and a too-fast pace of life, stay focused and energized on a big creative project or make a big change in your career. Written in bursts of easily absorbed clips, her book makes for easy, entertaining, and delightful reading.

This book really changed how I thought about myself at a time when I was getting down on myself for being antisocial. It explained why it takes more energy for me to socialize and why it's not necessarily 'fun' for me. It's also a very pleasant read and can be picked up at any time to read a chapter or two.

I've kept this book handy and just read a random chapter, when I need a pick me up, and a way to connect with others who understand me. I've also taken words and phrases from it to add to my resume and cover letters. Plus the adorable cover, makes it a pleasant reminder to just be who I am, and not try to act like an extrovert. :)

This book is great for introverts as it points out your strenghths and discusses your weaknesses and the importance of protecting your energy.

I've been in a much better place mentally since I've been reading the book since I know the importance of maintaining my energy.

I've started looking into meditation and buddhism. I'm looking forward to see where this goes.
