Ever feel like your introvert personality is holding you back in life? Keeping you from meeting new people, making new friends, chasing your dreams? Maybe it’s time you embraced the extrovert side that’s just dying to come out. That’s exactly what Jessica Pan did for a year. Instead of remaining shy and trying to avoid a lot of contact with people, she decided to push herself in a bunch of different ways – talking to strangers on the train, traveling alone, taking an improv class, even doing some public speaking! Along the way, she meets many interesting people who advise her on the best way to be more social and open to surprises in life.
As an introvert myself, I could relate 100 percent to the anecdotes Pan includes. I too would run the opposite direction from stand-up comedy classes or dinner parties (I hate small talk!) Although I’m not as brave as Pan, I really admired her courage to face her fears. She writes with a funny, yet emotional tone, so it’s easy to connect with her. I really loved the writing style and tone of this book and will definitely recommend it to my fellow introverts.
