Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain

I enjoy learning about psychology, and after repeatedly running across references to this quietbook, I decided to read it.  You’ll probably want to read it if you:

  • Have heard the terms “introvert” and “extrovert” and wonder exactly what they mean
  • Suspect (or know) that you are an introvert
  • Suspect (or know) that your spouse, child, or other loved one is an introvert
  • Teach, supervise, or work with introverts

Although one-third to one-half of people in the U.S. are introverts, our culture tends to applaud extroverts.  Many workplaces and schools are organized for extroverts, and some introverts feel that they can succeed only by becoming “pseudo-extroverts.”  This book can give any reader food for thought and a better understanding of himself and of other people.  There are tips for introverts and for extroverts who interact with them.
