Do you have to be an extrovert to be successful in today’s hyper-social world? Author Morra Aarons-Mele says no: She argues that the common belief that success can only be the result of constant networking, deal-making and “leaning in” is nonsense.

In her new book, Hiding in the Bathroom: An Introvert’s Roadmap to Getting Out There (When You’d Rather Stay Home), Aarons-Mele covers how she and others approach everything from schmoozing to FOMO to open-plan offices, demonstrates that there is more than one “type”, and highlights how each of us can reach our goals without conforming to a one-size-fits-all lifestyle.

As a successful entrepreneur who shares many of her personal experiences and anxieties, Aarons-Mele knows what it takes to make your mark on the world no matter your personality type. Her insights, coupled with proven tools and simple exercises, and more than 100 interviews, will empower you to evaluate your own work/life balance, take control and build a life based on your own version of happiness and success.
