It doesn't focus on extroverts and how to become like them, but how to take advantage of the fact that introversion is an opportunity. Introvert Power is a shelf staple; a go-to guide for introverts that's practical and proactive.

“Immersed in research and chock full of compelling stories, Introvert Power is essential reading for introverts as well as their more extroverted friends, family, and coworkers.” -
“Extroverts have to read this remarkable book too. It's not just that we'll better understand the other 50 percent of the population but that they have so much to teach us. The party always ends, after all. Being alone is unavoidable. Helgoe and the introverts among us know a secret: It's after all the music and dancing stops that we often become our most graceful selves.” - Ethan Watters, author of Crazy Like Us: The Globalization of the American Psyche
“Laurie Helgoe's Introvert Power is The Bhagavad Gita for introverts....Laurie fans the embers of wisdom in each of us to honor yearnings that serve as both compass and anchor. I'm now giving myself permission to get a lock for my office door and replace my reading chair with something that would delight my younger self. I owe it to her.” - Mary Hershey, author for children & young adults, co-creater of Shrinking Violets, Marketing for Introverts
“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
“I love Laurie Helgoe’s book. I just wish I’d had it when I was growing up; it would have reduced the number of decades it took me to treasure my own introversion. Now as I read each page I’m saying “Yes!”” - Josephine Humphreys, novelist and winner of the American Academy of Arts and Letters Award in Literature
“It changed my life. No kidding. Dr. Helgoe's book opened the door to discovery that has helped free me be myself.” - Sophia Dembling, author of The Introvert's Way: Living a Quiet Life in a Noisy World
