More than a third of all the people we will meet in our lifetime are introverts. They are those who would rather listen than speak; who prefer working in solitude than in teams; who create and innovate but aren’t as inclined to promote themselves. Steve Wozniak, Dr. Seuss, Chopin, and Rosa Parks are only some of the names of the introverts who have moved the world.
Author Susan Cain claims that introverts are terribly undervalued in society. Beginning from the 20th century, Cain traces the rise of the Extrovert Ideal and discovers how deep it has been embedded in our culture. In Quiet, she introduces us to introverts who have found success in life (despite being told otherwise)—from a clever and spirited public speaker who retreats into solitude once his talks are over, to a trailblazing salesman who has found power in asking questions.
Quiet is written with passion, its arguments supported by thorough research and experiences by people in the real world. It contains the power to reframe society’s view of introverts for the better, and just as important—if not more—introverts’ view of themselves.
