Introverts, people who prefer to listen than to speak, make up at least one-third of the people we know.

We owe many-a-great contributions to introverts – Steve Wozniak, Dr. Seuss, Chopin.

In her book Quiet, Susan Cain states how we undervalue introverts to the extent that we lose a lot in doing so.

The “extrovert ideal” rose in the twentieth century and Susan shows how it has become deeply ingrained in our culture.

Filled with great arguments backed by superb research and stories of real people, Susan makes a great case for the introverts of the world and you will leave with a different perception of introverts by the end of the book.
