Meeting the editor of the Japanese translation of Introvert Power
"Like a modern-day Thoreau, psychologist Laurie Helgoe leads us to a tranquil Walden Pond within our soul, and shows us the blessings of solitude we can find there."
--Stephen Bertman, author of The Eight Pillars of Greek Wisdom
“It changed my life. No kidding. Dr. Helgoe’s book opened the door to discovery that has helped free me to be myself.”
—Sophia Dembling, author of The Introvert’s Way: Living a Quiet Life in a Noisy World
“Laurie Helgoe's Introvert Power is The Bhagavad Gita for introverts. If I could, I'd organize a massive flash mob standing ovation outside her home. But I’d have to hire stunt double extraverts to do that---introverts (wisely) never show up for those things!”
--Mary Hershey, author for children & young adults, co-creater of Shrinking Violets, Marketing for Introverts
Introvert Power: Why Your Inner Life Is Your Hidden Strength. The book that started the conversation is back -- newly updated and expanded!
It’s no wonder that introversion is making headlines—more than half of all Americans are introverts. In the second edition of Introvert Power: Why Your Inner Life Is Your Hidden Strength, psychologist (and introvert) Laurie Helgoe, teaches introverts how to gain energy and power through reflection and solitude, live fulfilling lives, and challenge the extrovert-centered biases in our society.
In this groundbreaking call for an introvert renaissance, Helgoe offers an alternative to our deep-seated extraversion training and shows introverts how to reclaim their sources of power. Supplemented by the voices of several introverts, Helgoe presents a startling look at introvert numbers, influence, and economic might.
Revolutionary and invaluable, INTROVERT POWER includes ideas for how introverts can:
Claim private space
Carve out time to think
Bring a slower tempo into daily life
Create breaks in conversation and relationships
Deal effectively with parties, interruptions, and crowds
Quiet is might. Solitude is strength. Introversion is power.
