 I'm so proud to share that In Search of Courage

 has won the SILVER AWARD from the       

 Nonfiction Authors Association, who noted:

Wallflowers of the world will rejoice upon reading Steve Friedman's account of his journey.

In Search of Courage: An Introvert’s Struggle with Addictive Behavior, is a well-needed book that really goes into depth about being introverted, the feelings involved, and how society views and treats introverts. The stories in this book go from heart-wrenching to heartwarming.

As an introvert myself, I can certainly relate. I cannot imagine how scary it must have been for the author to share so much of himself with the world but I think the fact that he has, proves that he has found the courage that he was in search of. Perhaps this book will help others to do the same!

Recluse. Loner. Anti-social. Broken! 

These words are often used to describe introverts today. More than 40% of Americans are reserved, yet introverts often remove themselves or their input is disregarded in the workplace and society.

Steve Friedman’s book, In Search of Courage: An Introvert’s Struggle with Addictive Behaviors, is more than just a deeply revealing and compelling memoir. It offers a relatable story about fear and the repercussions of making poor choices in order to attempt to cope with his own introversion. Along his bumpy path, Friedman shares the tools which led him to overcome many challenges in his pursuit of peace, serenity, and courage.

In Search of Courage presents an inspiring story that shouts to the reader,

“You are not alone!”
