Description

Quiet, the Sunday Times and New York Times Bestseller by Susan Cain, will permanently change how we see introverts – and how you see yourself.

Our lives are driven by a fact most of us can’t name and don’t understand: whether we’re an introvert or an extrovert.

This defines who our friends and lovers are, which careers we choose, and whether we blush when we’re embarrassed.

At least a third of us are on the introverted side. Some of the world’s most talented people are introverts.

Without them, we wouldn’t have the Apple computer, the theory of relativity and Van Gogh’s sunflowers.

Yet extroverts have taken over. Shyness, sensitivity and seriousness are often seen as being negative.

Introverts feel reproached for being the way they are. In Quiet, Susan Cain shows how the brain chemistry of introverts and extroverts differs, and how society misunderstands and undervalues introverts.

She gives introverts the tools to better understand themselves and take full advantage of their strengths. ‘I can’t get Quiet out of my head. It is an important book – so persuasive and timely and heartfelt it should inevitably effect change in schools and offices’ Jon Ronson, The Guardian’Susan Cain’s Quiet has sparked a quiet revolution…perhaps rather than sitting back and asking people to speak up, managers and company leaders might lean forward and listen’ Megan Walsh, The Times’Quiet is a very timely book…maybe the extrovert ideal is no longer as powerful as it was; perhaps it is time we all stopped to listen to the still, small voice of calm’ Daisy Goodwin, The Sunday Times
