Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain
Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking

gogi, January 2, 2013

An important book, much more than a "psychology text." Quiet is not only an interesting read, it's on a topic that is (like introverts themselves) often overlooked, underestimated and/or misunderstood.

Cain's thinking is of immense value (and comfort) to anyone who is or has been labeled an introvert, or any creative person who is challenged by our culture's over-emphasis on the "squeaky wheel," groupthink, and the ubiquitous but often unproductive "team brainstorm."

It is also of great practical value to a whole range of folks (whether or not they themselves are introverted)-- a few that come to mind off the top of my head: HR people, CEOs, mid-level managers, creative directors, producers, space planners, interior designers and meeting planners. And, oh yes, PARENTS, PLEASE! (Especially extroverted ones.)

A MUST READ for anyone who collaborates professionally. (And finally out in affordable paperback, hurray!)
