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

by Susan Cain

You know you are an introvert if ….you prefer listening to speaking, reading to partying; you favor working on your own, over brainstorming in teams. Author Susan Cain charts the rise of the Extrovert Ideal in the twentieth century and explores its far-reaching effects. She examines both brain science and psychology to show how introverts move through the world.

Quiet offers advice on everything from how to better negotiate differences in introvert-extrovert relationships, to how to empower an introverted child when it makes sense to be a "pretend extrovert." You may find yourself in this book, or perhaps someone you know.

Regardless, it is an interesting read, and I recommend this book to introverts and extroverts alike.
