    I'm not a shintrovert (shy introvert - a term I was not familiar with before reading this book). I enjoy working with people and speaking to them. Yet, I do need my private time and space and reading to recharge my batteries. I have always been happy with this and a company of my fanta...

    This sounds ghastly. ...

    A lot of the stuff she forced herself to try was waaaaaay out of my comfort zone. Mad props to her for giving it a go and I was happy to live vicariously through her. The author is funny and has a way of making you feel a part of the story. I'm not sure if that's because I related ...

    I don't know if I'm an introvert. I know I'm perceived as an extrovert, so much so that when I moved into my current job, one of the librarians who would have to report to me sent me an article about how to care for introverts (ha!) But I have my own hill to climb to actually go out or...

    Like Jessica Pan, I?m a shy introvert (a ?shintrovert?) as well as an American in the UK, so I was intrigued to see the strategies she employed and the experiences she sought out during a year of behaving like an extrovert. She forced herself to talk to strangers on the tube, gav...

    As an introvert with occasionally crippling social anxiety, I regarded Jess Pan's book warily. I saw the cover online, laughed at the icing-on-the-cake image, and then gave the subtitle a little side-eye. An introvert? saying yes? for a whole year? Say it ain't so. Alas, Pan pul...

    This is the EXACTLY the book I needed. I don't think I have ever written a book, but reading this one makes me think I have. I too am a 30 something, shy, introverted, small town Texas girl who has no idea how to have a conversation (that doesn't involve ghosts or dogs) or make frie...

    I picked up this book solely because the title made me laugh, but the author's fabulously funny and vulnerable voice sucked me in. Over a year, Jessica chose to do things that terrified her, like talking to strangers on the subway, taking a solo vacation, and doing improv. In each chap...

    How far would you go in order to make friends (in a foreign country, in a busy city)? Jessica Pan goes the whole nine yards, which is admirable. She challenges herself to overcome her natural shyness, to leave her comfort zone and live as an extrovert for a year. And she does it by th...

    Well, this book made me a bit anxious reading it. As an introvert myself I really can't imagine myself for a year acting the way this woman did. Being social at parties,being involved in plays,public speaking etc. It makes me cringe to even imagine such a thing. Now there were admitt...

    Made me laugh so much! I loved the "mentors" along the way. Plus I loved the adventures in London, Paris, Edinburgh, and the forest. Funny, inspiring, brilliant. ...

    Introverts CAN have all the fun, or at least write about it in a way that has the rest of us laughing and turning the pages like our fingers are on fire... Guilty: I totally picked this book up because the title made me laugh. (And the cover was cute, too.) ?I assumed that life...

    I'm not a shintrovert (shy introvert - a term I was not familiar with before reading this book). I enjoy working with people and speaking to them. Yet, I do need my private time and space and reading to recharge my batteries. I have always been happy with this and a company of my fanta...

    A lot of the stuff she forced herself to try was waaaaaay out of my comfort zone. Mad props to her for giving it a go and I was happy to live vicariously through her. The author is funny and has a way of making you feel a part of the story. I'm not sure if that's because I related ...

    I don't know if I'm an introvert. I know I'm perceived as an extrovert, so much so that when I moved into my current job, one of the librarians who would have to report to me sent me an article about how to care for introverts (ha!) But I have my own hill to climb to actually go out or...

    Like Jessica Pan, I?m a shy introvert (a ?shintrovert?) as well as an American in the UK, so I was intrigued to see the strategies she employed and the experiences she sought out during a year of behaving like an extrovert. She forced herself to talk to strangers on the tube, gav...

    As an introvert with occasionally crippling social anxiety, I regarded Jess Pan's book warily. I saw the cover online, laughed at the icing-on-the-cake image, and then gave the subtitle a little side-eye. An introvert? saying yes? for a whole year? Say it ain't so. Alas, Pan pul...

    This book was at turns hilarious and caused much head-nodding by this reader in agreement and wonder. Yes, apparently many people think and feel the same way about various social interactions. It is always a comfort to realize you are not the only one to feel a certain way. This au...

    How far would you go in order to make friends (in a foreign country, in a busy city)? Jessica Pan goes the whole nine yards, which is admirable. She challenges herself to overcome her natural shyness, to leave her comfort zone and live as an extrovert for a year. And she does it by th...

    3.5 ? This book was really good. I know, it's just someone talking about a personal experience, and I'm not so into this things, but it was interesting and brainwarming. Reading this book I understanded that I'm not so introvert as I thought. Well, there are different kind of int...

    Yes I bought this purely based on the title I had seen on a couple bookstagram posts! I related to so many of the author?s introverted qualities (except I love hosting parties) and I loved that the book was split into chapters based on what new activity she was trying. I also enjoyed...

    This is a well-written account of Jess Pan, an introvert, challenging herself to do extroverted things: talk to total strangers, make new friends, travel solo, and do stand-up comedy. She is good at turning a disaster into a funny story. ...

    A lot of the stuff she forced herself to try was waaaaaay out of my comfort zone. Mad props to her for giving it a go and I was happy to live vicariously through her. The author is funny and has a way of making you feel a part of the story. I'm not sure if that's because I related ...

    I mentioned awhile back that I had bought this based purely on the title. I?m definitely an introvert and wanted to see how much of myself I could see in the book as well as how the author challenged herself to live like an extrovert for a year. Conclusion: I saw ALOT of myself in th...

    As a fellow introvert, I can definitely relate to a lot of Jessica Pan's experiences and struggles. Pan had a goal of breaking out of her shell and enlisted the help and advice of some experts along the way. Her story is shared with lots of insight and plenty of humor. This book was a ...

    Jessica Pan is an introvert and it is extremely difficult for her to make friends. She bails on engagements, is terrible at small talk, and the only friend she really has his her husband Sam. She decides to change all of this by going out into the world and researching the best way...

    3.5 stars ...

    I picked up this book solely because the title made me laugh, but the author's fabulously funny and vulnerable voice sucked me in. Over a year, Jessica chose to do things that terrified her, like talking to strangers on the subway, taking a solo vacation, and doing improv. In each chap...

    How far would you go in order to make friends (in a foreign country, in a busy city)? Jessica Pan goes the whole nine yards, which is admirable. She challenges herself to overcome her natural shyness, to leave her comfort zone and live as an extrovert for a year. And she does it by th...

    Well, this book made me a bit anxious reading it. As an introvert myself I really can't imagine myself for a year acting the way this woman did. Being social at parties,being involved in plays,public speaking etc. It makes me cringe to even imagine such a thing. Now there were admitt...

    Published May 28th I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. If you?re an introvert go get a copy of this book! full review can be found here: https://www.literarydragonreviews.web... OMG! This book! It was like reading a mirror. In my notes I wrote...

    This is a tricky one to review, in that Jessica Pan's writing is quite good in an informal, chatty, magazine style and is clearly well researched - but I'm not really sure about the concept. The synopsis is: "An introvert spends a year trying to live like an extrovert with hilariou...

    Upfront, I received a free copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for possibly reviewing it. I LOVED this book. I am an Introvert with a Myers-Briggs I. This book was on my TBR as soon as I saw the title. I'm not a shintrovert like the author. I have to pretend to be an extro...

    I mentioned awhile back that I had bought this based purely on the title. I?m definitely an introvert and wanted to see how much of myself I could see in the book as well as how the author challenged herself to live like an extrovert for a year. Conclusion: I saw ALOT of myself in th...

    As a fellow introvert, I can definitely relate to a lot of Jessica Pan's experiences and struggles. Pan had a goal of breaking out of her shell and enlisted the help and advice of some experts along the way. Her story is shared with lots of insight and plenty of humor. This book was a ...

    Jessica Pan is an introvert and it is extremely difficult for her to make friends. She bails on engagements, is terrible at small talk, and the only friend she really has his her husband Sam. She decides to change all of this by going out into the world and researching the best way...

    3.5 stars ...

    I picked up this book solely because the title made me laugh, but the author's fabulously funny and vulnerable voice sucked me in. Over a year, Jessica chose to do things that terrified her, like talking to strangers on the subway, taking a solo vacation, and doing improv. In each chap...

    How far would you go in order to make friends (in a foreign country, in a busy city)? Jessica Pan goes the whole nine yards, which is admirable. She challenges herself to overcome her natural shyness, to leave her comfort zone and live as an extrovert for a year. And she does it by th...

    Well, this book made me a bit anxious reading it. As an introvert myself I really can't imagine myself for a year acting the way this woman did. Being social at parties,being involved in plays,public speaking etc. It makes me cringe to even imagine such a thing. Now there were admitt...

    I'm not a shintrovert (shy introvert - a term I was not familiar with before reading this book). I enjoy working with people and speaking to them. Yet, I do need my private time and space and reading to recharge my batteries. I have always been happy with this and a company of my fanta...

    This sounds ghastly. ...

    A lot of the stuff she forced herself to try was waaaaaay out of my comfort zone. Mad props to her for giving it a go and I was happy to live vicariously through her. The author is funny and has a way of making you feel a part of the story. I'm not sure if that's because I related ...

    I don't know if I'm an introvert. I know I'm perceived as an extrovert, so much so that when I moved into my current job, one of the librarians who would have to report to me sent me an article about how to care for introverts (ha!) But I have my own hill to climb to actually go out or...

    Like Jessica Pan, I?m a shy introvert (a ?shintrovert?) as well as an American in the UK, so I was intrigued to see the strategies she employed and the experiences she sought out during a year of behaving like an extrovert. She forced herself to talk to strangers on the tube, gav...

    As an introvert with occasionally crippling social anxiety, I regarded Jess Pan's book warily. I saw the cover online, laughed at the icing-on-the-cake image, and then gave the subtitle a little side-eye. An introvert? saying yes? for a whole year? Say it ain't so. Alas, Pan pul...

    This review has been delayed by four days thanks to a) the distraction of Brexit mayhem, and b) having three visitors (two humans, one husky) to stay, but this is no reflection upon the book. I thoroughly enjoyed Jessica Pan?s voyage into the unfamiliar world of extroversion. After f...

    3.5 ? This book was really good. I know, it's just someone talking about a personal experience, and I'm not so into this things, but it was interesting and brainwarming. Reading this book I understanded that I'm not so introvert as I thought. Well, there are different kind of int...

    Yes I bought this purely based on the title I had seen on a couple bookstagram posts! I related to so many of the author?s introverted qualities (except I love hosting parties) and I loved that the book was split into chapters based on what new activity she was trying. I also enjoyed...
