    I really enjoyed your book, quiet, where you have helped many thousands of people understand themselves and their gifts. But its been at those moments where you did what must have come hard for you, speaking in public, where you became my hero. To believe in something so much to be willing to have the courage to do the very thing you find so difficult is heroic. I watched the TED broadcast…and can tell you I probably would have chickened out. You came across clearly, and with an element of honest vulnerability that only served to connect with people like me even more. Most people don’t want to be called a hero, but sorry, you are my hero!

    As one of your British readers I’d like to say how pleased I am that you are visiting! I won’t be able to get to the live events unfortunately, but I wish you well and hope that you have a great visit. I will try to catch one of the radio interviews.

    Just started reading (and enjoying) the book yesterday after waiting more than a month for it to be available at the library. May you enjoy all of the success that comes your way.

    A friend of mine for forty years recently passed away. Everyone who knew him described him as a “quiet man.” I don’t think that necessarily means he was an introvert, but he definitely was more a listener than a talker. Do you know of any poetry which praises the virtue of being a quiet person?

    It was an experience that I would describe as long awaited revelation. Your soft speech about being an introvert even though not entirely original, has made a great impression on me and somehow it sorted out quite a few questions about my own life.
    Above all it helped me to summon enough courage to stop trying to be bold and expansive.
    As I reflect on my past actions I can see, that I always tried to suppress my quiet side and be more outgoing. Maybe it was because of the kind of books I read. But the truth is that although I tried really hard I have never forsaken the introvert inside me. I even learned to appreciate it, but it never occurred to me, that I should embrace it. And for that I wanted to thank You.

    I just started your book Quiet. I find it fascinating and logical the evolution of the extrovert ideal. Mostly, though i feel liberated. I use to think I was agoraphobic but that didnt really fit. Then maybe on the spectrum. Now I feel peaceful in the knowledge that I’m an introvert! No apologies! Thanks!

    Really enjoyed your interview with Pat Kenny this Morning. It is wonderful to hear someone speak positively about being an introvert. I look forward to reading your book.

    First of all i wanted to thank You, even though You probably heard it like thousands of time. I’m also a law student and i was just doing my project on comparative law,when I decided to watch something at and of course there are many of profound, smart, and serious speeches but yours was just truly overwhelming (in good sense)! I was amazed and grateful that you have thrown the light on such a supposedly easy case. I learned a lot from that video, and i want to congratulate You the book! I hope it will be soon available in different languages (especially in Polish). Your idea spreads to the world! You can be proud of yourself. Best regards, Veronica :)

    I’m declaring you my virtual mentor, and I’m going to take your quiet response to be all the affirmation you have time to give and that I, ultimately, need. Here’s to quietly making the world a better place for all of us and all our collective children.

    Just heard your BBC Radio 4 interview and had to write to say how much it struck chords with me in so many areas that I’ve observed in life. A revelation. It was a great interview. I hope you have an enjoyable time here in the UK; I’m sure it will be a great success.

    Hi, Susan! I’m so happy to hear you are doing so great! Looking forward to April and to see what is next for your book tour. Just FYI, the L.A. Times Book Festival is taking place at USC on April 21-22, so think you might want to come to that? :)
