Kahnweiler (Quiet Influence) asserts that introvert-extrovert relationships are most successful when opposites stop focusing on their dissimilarities and apply approaches that steer them towards results. She posits a five-step, “ABC” process by which to do this: accept the alien, bring on the battles, cast the character, destroy the dislike, and realize that each can’t offer everything. Her advice to both intro- and extroverts to be patient with and learn from the other promises superior results. VERDICT: Helpful in comprehending and appreciating the differences in others.
