(August 2, 2016) Barbara Florio Graham has posted a review of The Irresistible Introvert by Michaela Chung on Amazon. Bobbi says, "As an extrovert, I haven't bothered reading about how to deal with being an introvert. And when Michaela Chung came to me for help in reviewing the contract Skyhorse Publishing had sent her, I still didn't feel obligated to read her blog or any of her articles. Skyhorse had asked her to write this book, and my job was to ensure that the contract was fair and protected her interests. But then I had a signed copy of The Irresistible Introvert in my hands, and felt I should at least read the introduction. It was a revelation."
