I am only about 100 pages in with this book, and it has already changed the way I think about myself (100% Outie), AND about my husband (about an 85% Innie). I was starting to go down that dangerous path of 'Why can't he be a bit more like me at times?', and was not appreciating him for the differences that make "US" work. I now see that it's the way we think about our differences that counts.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who is at that 'hmmmmmm....' stage in their introvert/extrovert relationship.

There is so little information out there on Introverts. This book sheds light on the love relationship between introverts and extroverts. I am an introvert and have felt misunderstood all 52 years of my life. Not only should introverts read this but extroverts should too!

This book is a great complement to the first book as it goes into the different types of relationships between introverts and extroverts. It includes the information that was in the first book but has the added dimension of exploring relationships.

I found it very insightful and helpful! Introverts and extroverts can have a good relationship if they understand the dynamics as explained in this book. Instead of resenting or feeling uncomfortable with a partner that is of the opposite type, understanding and appreciating differences can work in a great way!

This book touches on some of the basics of introvert/extrovert relationships, but if you're looking for something with more depth and greater detail, I'd suggest Susan Cain's "Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking". "The Introvert & Extrovert in Love" didn't really do it for me.

I am an extrovert in a relationship with an introvert. This book is right on target, with the difference in between introverts/extroverts and men/women and how they process feelings, reason, and re-energize. This book has solidified the tools I need to help us thrive. Thank you!

My fiance is the introvert, I am the extrovert. I bought this book because we are struggling with our differences. There are so many places throughout the book that I can relate to. If you are in this type of a relationship...I totally recommend this book! A very interesting read.

I ordered this book and started reading it and was really liking it however about half way through IMO they got too bogged down with "if you and your outtie/innie partner are having conflicts in x, y or z areas, then try a, b, c" language. It started to sound a little too simplistic to me. However maybe this kind of language works for other people and if it gives an outtie/innie couple something to talk about, think about, work on, then the book is a worthwhile read.

Perhaps if this is the first book you've read about introversion vs. extroversion it could be helpful. I've done a little research and found this book to be a letdown - no new information here. I ended up skimming the chapters and sending it on to the thrift store.
