About the Author
Beth Buelow was 7 when she outlined the marketing plan for her first entrepreneurial venture, 23 when she learned she was an introvert, and 38 when, in 2010, she put the two together to create The Introvert Entrepreneur. Her message resonates with introverts who want to amplify their strengths, and the extroverts who want to understand why introverts are so doggone quiet. Beth is a professional coach, author, and speaker. She is based in the Pacific Northwest and serves introverts worldwide. She is the author of “Insight: Reflections on the Gifts of Being an Introvert” (2012) and “I is for Introvert: The A-Z Guide to the Quieter Side” (2013). Learn more at TheIntrovertEntrepreneur.com

I was interested in the book, but not sure how it would benefit me if I weren't an introvert. I think this book will answer many questions about the 'quiet types' in the workplace, clients who would rather communicate by email rather than phone, and individuals who seem to be shy or subdued. After reading the book, you realize (as an Extrovert) that just because someone isn't jumping up over an idea, doesn't mean they don't support it. Introverts appreciate time to think about things and consider their words before speaking too quickly. This was all valuable information for me. The overlying lesson learned in this book is that the world of business is filled with both introverts and extraverts and by appreciating each others' styles, we can all benefit from better communications and relationships, which combined, build a stronger bottom line for all involved.
I'm not inadequate, I'm an introvert and it's time I claimed that. This book gave me the insight and permission to do that. I recommend this to anyone who is wondering why they don't fit in or why they feel stuck or trapped. It could give you the answers you need to fully accept your unique self and find a place for you to thrive and fully express yourself.
I highly recommend this book both for validation and as a guide to expanding what Beth calls one's "capacity zone".
For extroverts, this book can help you understand the introverts in your life and, I hope, value them and what they have to offer more.
The "author's voice", in terms of having a qualified narrator, is both very readable and very credible, as it becomes clear while reading that Beth Buelow, the author, has been through a fair bit of difficult experience herself and can offer genuinely personal hard-won wisdom.
As well as enjoying the book yourself, if you're more introverted yourself, this book could be a good one to recommend/give to your more extroverted friends/closer colleagues/selected family members who have been bugging you for years to explain why you're so often 'a bit on the quiet side' and not always keen to join in big rowdy family games etc. :)
