520    This book demonstrates how introverted people are 
       misunderstood and undervalued in modern culture, charting 
       the rise of extrovert ideology while sharing anecdotal 
       examples of how to use introvert talents to adapt to 
       various situations. At least one-third of the people we 
       know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer 
       listening to speaking, reading to partying; who innovate 
       and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working 
       on their own over brainstorming in teams. Although they 
       are often labeled "quiet," it is to introverts that we owe
       many of the great contributions to society, from van 
       Gogh's sunflowers to the invention of the personal 
       computer. Filled with indelible stories of real people, 
       this book shows how dramatically we undervalue introverts,
       and how much we lose in doing so. Taking the reader on a 
       journey from Dale Carnegie's birthplace to Harvard 
       Business School, from a Tony Robbins seminar to an 
       evangelical megachurch, the author charts the rise of the 
       Extrovert Ideal in the twentieth century and explores its 
       far-reaching effects. She talks to Asian-American students
       who feel alienated from the brash, backslapping atmosphere
       of American schools. She questions the dominant values of 
       American business culture, where forced collaboration can 
       stand in the way of innovation, and where the leadership 
       potential of introverts is often overlooked. And she draws
       on cutting-edge research in psychology and neuroscience to
       reveal the differences between extroverts and introverts. 
       She introduces us to successful introverts, from a witty, 
       high-octane public speaker who recharges in solitude after
       his talks, to a record-breaking salesman who quietly taps 
       into the power of questions. Finally, she offers advice on
       everything from how to better negotiate differences in 
       introvert-extrovert relationships to how to empower an 
       introverted child to when it makes sense to be a "pretend 
       extrovert." This book has the ability to permanently 
       change how we see introverts and, equally important, how 
       introverts see themselves.
