    Hello Mrs Cain,

    I’m beginning to read your book since this morning. Of course, I’m an introvert too !
    Your book is very reassuring. I was waiting for it for 50 years ago ! In those times, it would have been daring to be such persons becoming famous in spite of themselves… But if now, we shall be more socially accepted,it will be a revolution for meetings. Your book is also very well wrote, but a bit difficult for a stranger.

    P.S. : I apologize for my terrible English because I’m a French person.

    Beware! There is a counter-revolution starting.

    The Harvard Business Review posted a Blog entitled “The Seven Skills You Need to Thrive in the C-Suite” that perpetuates the myths of teams and relationship building, praising less self-oriented executives, please see:

    Congratulations for being vocal about this cause. The difference between women and introverts as groups is that there are plenty of extroverted women, many of whom were vocal enough to bring women to where they are today. For the most part, introverts are not interested in picking up this fight – because it involves doing what they don’t want to do – being in the spotlight. For the most part, they work behind the scenes, and make things work to their advantage in their own ways. So maybe, that is why it is a quiet revolution.

    Dear Susan, I am almost finished reading your book, and wanted to let you know what a fan I am! As a child, I was labeled “shy” by my beautiful, vivacious mother, who was loved for her outgoing personality. My father used to say “Why can’t you be more like your mother?” I was an only child, a bookworm, and serious student, although on the Myers/Briggs test I am just slightly to the left of center on the Introvert/Extrovert scale. When I was in my late 30s, taking a course on Jung and symbolism from an professor who referred to himself as an introvert, I had an epiphany. Maybe I wasn’t “defective,” even though “introvert” in my family was a dirty word, and I was one! If this man could publicly state he was an introvert (shudder!), perhaps it wasn’t the end of the world. It was the beginning of a revision of my sense of self. Your book has amplified that, and also validated my personality. Thank you so very much! I am 69 years old, and still going strong in my interior design business, as I do very well working one-on-one with clients. My husband, who is an “ambivert,” now understands why I need to get away from the crowds much sooner than he does (I’ve been quoting your book to him). Keep up the good work!
