This is an interesting read! There are people in this world who are introverted & there are those who are extroverted. At the end of the day, when it is all said & done, people are going to be who they are. Those who are introverts will resort to the quietness of their soul, while extroverts will resort to speaking & sharing their soul. However, it is a great discipline to practice the opposite of your natural personality, so that you grow in your natural tendencies and grow in your unnatural tendencies. Extroverts need times of solitude, which will benefit their extroverted ways. Those who are introverted need times of speaking and sharing vocally, so that they benefit in reflection/solitude.

As for those who are public speakers, ministers, etc – you need the discipline of being quiet…so that your time in speaking reflects your time in solitude.

Some ideas & themes from the book are…

Solitude is a catalyst for innovation. “Quiet leadership” is not an oxymoron. Everyone shines, given the right lighting. For some, it’s a Broadway spotlight, for others, a lamplit desk. This book has some beneficial truths about introverts & the power of being in times of quiet. However, their a redundancy of addressing the nature & issues that introverts deal with. If you can sift through the redundancy, you may learn some essentials about introvertedness and the benefits of quietness.

I received this book for the purpose of review from Multnomah Publishers.
