Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan CainDirections & Maps
About a third of us are introverts. The author demonstrates how, in our urbanized society, such individuals are often at a disadvantage. Our culture values outgoing, participatory individuals and often looks askance at those who are inner-directed and contemplative. From the Harvard Business School to a Tony Robbins seminar, Cain travels around the country observing various groups that value and promote extroversion. She makes a thoughtful case for the undervalued contributions introverts can make to society. Insightful and engaging, this book is especially validating for those who have always felt out-of-step with others.
