Quiet:  the power of introverts in a world that can’t stop talking by Susan Cain

Post by Caroline Podd.

This book is a must read for anybody who has been told “speak up”, “come out of your shell” and “you’re too quiet”.  Susan Cain celebrates the characteristics that introverts bring to society.  She discusses how introverts and extroverts have been valued and perceived across time and cultures.  Most importantly, this book encourages introverts to embrace their “quiet” characteristics in a world that can’t stop talking.

The author has also written Quiet Power for children.
