Description: Gabriela Casineanu is an award-winning author whose best-selling books about introverts have helped thousands of readers, world-wide, gain a clearer, stronger sense of their own potential. Her latest book, Quiet Lessons for the Introvert’s Soul, takes that inquiry into personal well-being to a deeper, more powerful level.

We all know how extroverts would go about writing a book like this—confidently proclaiming (in BOLD TYPE): “Five Proven Steps to Ensure Lifetime Success!” “The 8 Secrets of Perfect Relationships!” “Seven Ways You Sabotage Your Own Happiness and How to Fix It!” Extroverts, typically, are confident that they have the answer to your problems—and don’t mind telling you.

Casineanu’s “quiet lessons” are, instead, about reflective discovery—allowing the truth to emerge naturally from within. The book contains interviews with 11 introverts from a dozen countries. Each of the people whose stories come richly to life in this book faced and overcame difficult personal and professional challenges by drawing on strengths they initially didn’t know they possessed. To varying degrees, each needed to question their own limiting beliefs and to learn to see themselves as valuable, strong people in their own right—rather than as flawed, imperfect copies of extroverts. At the end of each interview, Casineanu highlights the strengths each interviewee discovered in his or her journey. She concludes with her own experience of self-discovery.

Casineanu calls these accounts “Introvert’s Hero Journeys”—and she’s right. I found the stories powerfully moving and thought-provoking.

This is not a book to rush through. Its purpose—and value—is in the insights that emerge for readers (introverts and extroverts) as they engage each story and then reflect on their own lives.

What also struck me was that the characteristic “introvert” strengths brought out in this book, like listening, respecting different viewpoints, acting with integrity and authenticity, working collaboratively towards shared goals, are desperately needed in the fearful, angry, and intolerant world we now struggle to live in. In a noisy world, perhaps we all need to tune into the quieter lessons of our souls.
