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

readaholic, January 3, 2013

For someone who has struggled my whole life (well into the 6th decade) with feeling out-of-step with the more sociable and talkative people all around me, this book was a breath of fresh air. It explained why I react as I do, that I'm not at all alone, and maybe most important, that there's nothing "wrong" with my reactions and I have a right to them. Contains great ideas for living and getting along well in a world dominated by extroverts and ambiverts (those who are balanced between the two poles). I just wish I'd found this book and its ideas about 40 years ago.
