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

29 May

The title says it all!

Introverted, quiet people need more respect for being who they are. There is an extrovert ideal in this nation that began in the early 1900s. Before that, people were respected for their character and craftsmanship instead of their vibrant personality.

This book has made me very happy. It’s about time someone came out and said that half the population of the U.S. is introverted and they have so much to offer – including leadership abilities. They often get overlooked for management or leadership positions because of their discerning, quiet demeanor. But this kind of person often makes the best leader.

I enjoyed every bit of this book, which took years for Susan Cain to research and write. It was a labor of love to give quiet people the confidence to be who they are and know when to act the part of the extrovert.

Thank you Susan! I will highly recommend this book to many friends and family!

This book was provided by the publisher. I give it 5 stars!
