To assemble this book, author Nancy Ancowitz, an introvert herself, evidently
interviewed a large number of prominent people. Indeed, the book starts out with
five pages of "People Who Have Shared Their Wisdom in This Book", listing some

though Gates is mentioned in the text as an introvert.

supported by quotes from these eminent people. However, we could not help feeling
