Susan Cain: The power of introverts

I was so that kid who brought a suitcase of books to summer camp. I clearly remember my parents' frustration with my desire to read all the time, and how they urged me to go outside and play. What worked for all of us is when I found friends who shared my interests and temperament. My girlfriends and I would go to the pool and read. Mom was happy that I was "out with friends" and I was happy that I had some quiet time.  At 45 I am still trying to figure out how to be an introvert in an extroverted world. Ms. Cain's ideas resonate with me and I ordered her book from Amazon as soon as I heard her speak. Wow.
