Book Review – The Irresistible Introvert

The Irresistible Introvert book coverThe Irresistible Introvert: Harness the Power of Quiet Charisma in a Loud World by Michaela Chung

Michaela Chung, the author of the blog Introvert Spring, breaks down the myth that only extroverts can be charismatic. Instead of pretending to be extroverted, introverts can use their unique strengths to be just as successful in this loud world. The book does a good job of explaining introversion and how the extroverted worldview can misinterpret quiet and reserved for shy or snobbish. The writing was very accessible with a mixture of personal anecdotes and scientific research, but it was also a little too self-helpy for my taste, especially in the second half which deals with methods to be a better introverted you. Overall, as an introvert, I like books that boost the view that introverts are just as capable, talented, and magnetic. While not as good as Quiet by Susan Cain, I still recommend this book.
