Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a world that can’t stop talking

Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking By: Susan Cain

As an Introvert I absolutely loved the title of this book! As an introvert, I have heard all the stereotypes, and felt the push to be more outgoing, and felt the pressures of living in an extroverted world. Cain points out through the first few chapters that being ‘quiet’ is not a negative, that being an introvert is not a bad thing, introverts simply approach problems and life from a different perspective.

Cain approaches this book from a scientific perspective and uses many sources and surveys as well as personal experiences  to back what she is saying. Cain continues throughout the book to remind us of introverts throughout history who have made a difference and has made a powerful impact in the world. This book is research based and focuses primarily on introverts and how they are succeeding in an extroverted world. Cain offers advice for introverts, but it can be advice for anyone.

I recommend this book for anyone to read, especially for those self-proclaimed introverts, this book will open your eyes and help you to realize and understand some of your thought processes as an introvert and why you may feel uncomfortable in certain circumstances.

I received this book complimentary from Waterbrook Multnomah through the Blogging for Books program in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

    I will be picking this one up. My hubby recently shared an article with -from Newsweek I believe it was- titled The Power of Shy. He was elated to discover an article that described him as an introvert. Not the stereotyped introvert but the real him. It is very good for people to understand the differences in our thinking especially as a spouse or a teacher. Thanks for the review!
