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

quietAuthor Susan Cain has written an engrossing story of her triumphs and travails as an introvert in a world of extraverts. According to Crain, people who prefer listening to speaking, to working on their own instead in a group, have made great contributions to society despite the general population’s preference for the more visible extravert. Rosa Parks, Chopin, Dr. Seuss, and Steve Wozniak are just of the few introverts she names, even though an estimated one-third of the population fall in the category.
Cain talks about the need for introverts to adopt some extravert qualities – play the role – while suggesting that society become better at recognizing and using the special strengths of this oft-maligned group. If you are the parent of a quiet child, this book will give you help in understanding and raising your child to feel important and part of a society which often overlooks them.
