    I kind of like myself, thanks. Don't really need your approval, book selling guy.

    But get that Shamwow guy to pitch for you then come see me.

    Most Generals in the armed forces are introverts. They need the inner willpower to be able to succeed in that role. Many executives are also (though not always CEO's for a non-business reason of late).

    The thing about the shamwow guy is that I think he has OCD. (Who else spends twenty bucks on paper towels in a month?)

    Wow, I love the way the main page sells the book. It's brilliant, and I appreciate brilliance. It's perfectly straight to the point. This isn't going to trick anybody. People don't "fall" for this kind of thing. They're either going to look into something they want to learn about, or they'll laugh and leave the site. Everybody who is offended and talking about it is just helping to promote the book.

    The Popular Guy says "While youre living in fantasy land, Im milking the real world for everything it offers: popularity, admiration, endless friends, sex, and success. But you dont want that anyway, right? Lie to yourself."

    Well, you're either lying to yourself or you're not. I don't see what the big deal is. You're all getting defensive. It's funny. You're making it look like he's right. (Part of the brilliance.)

    The book is probably easily worth $30 if that's the kind of information you want. And I'm sure the guy has a lot of unique points that you won't find anywhere else. Sometimes bold language, straight talk, and facts are necessary for making an impact. It's his job to really make you think, but the thoughts you leave with are yours and yours alone. You're not going to believe anything you don't agree with. He gives you information that forces you to take a stance - essential for progress. Even if you'd never do anything with the knowledge directly, it would still be fun to read, and I certainly have respect for anyone who is trying to better themselves. You have to start somewhere, whether it's buying a book and realizing you make bad decisions or buying a book and actually examining everything it says to see what out of it you can utilize to improve your life. It's as simple as that.

    Keep in mind that none of you have actually read the book.
    "When a resolute young fellow steps up the great bully, the world, and takes him boldly by the beard, he is often surprised to find that it comes off in his hand, and that it was only tied on to scare away the timid adventurers." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

    True enough. However, the assertion that extroverted people don't live in a fantasy land is completely baseless. Is all I'm saying.

    Of course we're losers- and I'm DAMN proud of being one!
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    good find. i likke how the world looks as introversion as a disease when many times it is a gift.
