Quiet by Susan Cain At least one-third of the individuals we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to talking; who innovate and create but detest self-promotion; who favor working on their own over working in groups. It is to introverts—Rosa Parks, Chopin, Dr. Seuss, Steve Wozniak—that we owe numerous of the incredible commitments to society. In Quiet, Susan Cain argues that we significantly undervalue introverts and shows how much we lose in doing so. She charts the rise of the Extrovert Ideal throughout the twentieth century and investigates how profoundly it has come to penetrate our culture. She too presents us to successful introverts—from a witty, high-octane public speaker who energizes in isolation after his talks, to a record-breaking sales representative who discreetly taps into the control of questions. Enthusiastically contended, eminently investigated, and filled with permanent stories of genuine individuals, Quiet has the control to forever alter how we see self observers and, similarly vital, how they see themselves.
