A paradigm-shifting book that shows how dramatically our culture has come to misunderstand and undervalue introverts and gives introverts the tools to take full advantage of their strengths.
At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking, reading to partying and who favor working on their own over brainstorming in teams. Although they are often labeled 'quiet,' it is to introverts that we owe many of the great contributions to society--from van Gogh's sunflowers to the invention of the personal computer.
Passionately argued, superbly researched, and filled with indelible stories of real people, Quiet has the power to permanently change how we see introverts and, equally important, how they see themselves. Author Susan Cain charts the rise of 'the extrovert ideal' throughout the 20th century and shows how it has come to permeate our culture. She explores cutting-edge research on the biology and psychology of temperament and outlines practical skills that can benefit nearlyall of us, including how to network if you hate small talk, how to modulate your personality according to circumstance, and how to empower introverted children.
