Introvert Revolution is an empowerment tool. By dissecting introversion into multiple theoretical and biological perspectives, Andy Johnson has created an excellent vehicle to persuade the notoriously hard-to-convince introverts that embracing introversion opens a treasure trove of signature strengths just waiting to be embraced and developed. It is an intellectually and experientially accessible book, providing a combination of rationale, examples and exercises to explore and overcome unconsciously internalized beliefs that can hold us back, like shame and doubt. The exercises are not only good opportunities to value individual differences but they enhance skills of mindfulness and gratitude that reap positive benefits on their own accord. --Pamela Rutledge, Ph.D., MBA, Director Media Psychology Research Center, Faculty Fielding Graduate University
"This well researched and compelling read makes the case for introverted leadership in a unique way. Author Andrew Johnson draws upon his own early career struggles blended with case studies and hard science to help introverts draw upon their authentic yin selves. He lays out a map for introverts to take courageous and practical steps to ramp up their leadership game." --Jennifer Kahnweiler, PhD, Author of "The Genius of Opposites"
"Introvert Revolution is a clarion call to open the eyes and ears of introverts and extroverts alike. In this bias busting book, Andy Johnson contends, one of the biggest challenges lies in reframing perceived weaknesses as strengths and allowing ourselves to reject culturally imposed standards of leadership. Introverts contribute something important to the world as leaders, as history attests. Johnson shares how they can do so authentically, powerfully and even quietly amid our noisy world." --Nancy Ancowitz, Author of "Self Promotion for Introverts"
About the Author

He's been married to his more extroverted wife for over twenty-seven years. He contributes regularly to his blog, Revolutionary Thoughts, on introvertrevolution.com and conducts two-day intensives for introverted leaders called Yin Leader Workshop.

Johnson teaches to be authentic, and live in harmony with the extroverted leaders around you. Nothing disqualifies an introvert from becoming or being a leader. Both bring insight and differing perspectives to the conversation and decision making. Their brains are wired differently, which has many benefits. optimally, a societal balance between these two complementary halves can be found, affirmed and embraced. This book is about a personal revolution, an internal change of mind. Both the way you view yourself as well as others get inspiration for renewal. You can revolt against the current culture and its impact on you personally and become the leader, in the fullest sense, you were destined to be. The book has several appendices on measuring introversion and extroversion, extroverts who get it, and whole person coaching, Johnson's service besides writing books.
If you are one of those who have experienced the repressive force of “extro-world” then this book is for you. If you are a hard-wired extrovert then this book will provide you with an invaluable tool for living in community with your introverted family, friends and co-workers.
At the end of the day he argues that all any of us want is to be who we are. All of us want to be accepted and valued for what we contribute. As Johnson puts it--“Happiness is found in fulfilling the ultimate purpose for which we exist, our why.” He puts the world on notice that an introvert who succeeds in that makes a great leader.
