I can't wait to get into this book! I caught wind of it somewhere, I don't remember where, and have been on the library wait list for about 3 months. Now I have it in my hot little hands.
She discusses and I believe it's true that our society has created an "extrovert ideal" and that it's easier to function in this society, if you fit into it. So I can't wait to see what she has to say, and the research she's compiled. With 2 or 3 introverts in my house, and me pretty much smack dab in the middle of the extroversion/introversion scale, depending on the situation, I think it'll be a good read. Already it brought up some good discussion with the 1st chapter and some other introverted family members, like my brother in law, saying, "Ya that's me!" And feeling like it's OK to be that way, rather than feeling like you "should" be different.
