Quiet Charisma in a Loud World

April 08th, 2016

Among a culture of extroverts, Michaela Chung has worked to carve out a space for the quiet and the reserved. Her book, The Irresistible Introvert: Harness the Power of Quiet Charisma in a Loud World (Skyhorse $12.74), demonstrates the power of low-key charisma in a world of deafening noise. As an introvert coach, she argues that charisma is not reserved for extroverts. Her blog has over two hundred articles on the introvert’s way of life. “The biggest breakthrough for me in 2016,” she writes, “has been learning to truly and completely love myself. The art of self-love doesn’t always come easily to us introverts. We have years of guilt and shame about our introversion to contend with.” She lives in Nanaimo. 9781510704787
