    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.
