Self-promotion for Introverts

The Quiet Guide To Getting Ahead

By Nancy Ancowitz

"Filled with tips ... The author‘s tone is supportive and she does not argue that introverts should become live wires."   --The New York Times "Whatever's behind your reluctance to speak out for yourself, [ Self-Promotion for Introverts] is the first book I've seen with serious research on the topic that leads to a new game plan; it may help you promote yourself without bragging."   --Los Angeles Times "Best Books 2009"   --Publishers Weekly "Best Book Gifts"   --ABC News "Best New Career Books"   --The Star-Ledger "Must-read Fall Books for IT Execs"   --CIO Insight "Offers a solid dose of practical advice - alongside humorous anecdotes - for introverts to assert themselves by using their inherent tendencies in the most effective ways ... Written in a practical, precise, and smart way, Ancowitz shows introverts how to take advantage of the unique qualities and strengths they can offer, but also how to network, build visibility, have a memorable impact on others, speak publicly, interview effectively, own their own strengths, and much more ... One important thing to note is that the book is not about teaching an introvert to become an extrovert. The aim of the book is not to change people to be something they are not, but rather to refine them into the strongest versions of what they already are."   --Positive Psychology New Daily "Written by an introvert for introverts ... If you're not an introvert, but have introverted customers or employees - this could be your lucky day. At first I thought this book was just for introverted people, until I realized how powerful my messages could be if I organized them in a way that my introverted audiences could appreciate and feel comfortable around."   --Small Business Trends " Self-Promotion for Introverts  is a primer on doing just that - helping 'quiet sorts' assert themselves by using their inherent tendencies in the most effective ways."   --Fort Myers Florida Weekly " Self-Promotion for Introverts" is excellent and a wonderful gift to the understanding of introverts. Much too often they have been considered neurotic! This book should help in changing that opinion and supporting the confidence of introverts."  --Katharine Myers, Coguardian and Trustee, Myers-Briggs Trust  Get noticed . . . and get  ahead!
