‘Quiet – The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking’ shows how dramatically we undervalue introverts, and how much we lose in doing so. In this extraordinary book, Susan Cain draws on cutting-edge research in psychology and neuroscience to reveal the surprising differences between extroverts and introverts. She introduces us to successful introverts–from a witty, high-octane public speaker who recharges in solitude after his talks, to a record-breaking salesman who quietly taps into the power of questions. Finally, she offers invaluable advice on everything from how to better negotiate differences in introvert-extrovert relationships to how to empower an introverted child to when it makes sense to be a “pretend extrovert.”
This book has the power to permanently change how we see introverts and, equally important, how introverts see themselves.
