4 Books Every Introvert Should Read

1.Quiet Power: The Secret Strength of Introverts by Susan Cain

Buy it from Amazon

No writer today is a bigger champion of introversion than Susan Cain. Her second book on the subject, geared towards the crucially vulnerable adolescent demographic, defends introverted tendencies through scientific studies and experiences from real teens.Quiet Power (and her first book Quiet) help their young readers navigate the push-pull of outgoing and reserved personalities at a critical point in life.

2.A Natural History of the Senses by Diane Ackerman

Buy it from Amazon

Diane Ackerman is a luscious poet, able to dive deep into sensory details without losing the emotional thread. In classic introvert style, she muses over universal, animal instincts (Why does music move us? How did kissing on the mouth begin?) with a sincerely personal, human perspective.A Natural History of the Senses is one of her most refined works, and an outstanding example of the inner thoughts of an introvert expressed clearly.

3.Walden; Or, Life in the Woods by Henry David Thoreau

Buy it from Amazon

Of course this book is on this list! It’s the first and last word on self-reliance, on transcendentalism, on self-actualization. Thoreau’s two-year stint in a self-made cabin off Walden Pond is practically a manual on how the introvert interacts with his world. It’s encouraging to have a written affirmation that time spent alone can be on equal footing, if not more spiritually fulfilling, than anything else.

4.Subliminal: How Your Conscious Mind Rules Your Behavior by Leonard Mlodinow

Buy it from Amazon

Introverts are often accused of being “too heady” and “over-thinking”, and often they can’t quite express their reasons why. Leonard Mlodinow’s Subliminal does it for them – and without apologizing. Mlodinow’s exhaustive research picks at the unpredictable and occasionally combative relationship between the conscious and the subconscious. Heavy as that sounds, the author’s genius exploration of perception, thought process and misinformation are balanced by his witty, grounded tone.
