    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 ...

    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...

    I didn't end up finishing this book, because it just started to make me anxious and uncomfortable. As an introvert myself, I could relate to a lot of what the author said. However I didn't like that she kept pushing herself to be more extroverted even though it made her very stressed a...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    Sorry I'm Late, I Didn't Want to Come One Introvert's Year of Saying Yes by Jessica Pan This is a book I requested from NetGalley and the review is voluntary. This is a witty and clever book that I enjoyed reading. I can say relate to some of it. It has humor and is a good feeling ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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. ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Part memoir, part self-help, Jessica Pan takes on a challenge that literally makes my palms sweat and heart race, and lives to relay the tale. In recounting her experience ?extroverting? for a year, she shares tips and tricks that seem basic enough for a 10 year old, but are helpfu...

    I loved this book! It shows just how amazing those experiences that we think are going to be uncomfortable can be if we push past our anxiety and experience new things! ...

    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 ...

    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...
