The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
In Quiet, the international bestseller, 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.
Passionately argued, superbly researched, and filled with real stories, Quiet will permanently change how we see introverts - and how you see yourself.

Susan Cain does an excellent job of unpacking and normalising the gifts of introverts. So often introverts are problematised and stigmatised - Cain demonstrates why this should not be so, and provides models of healthy interactions in homes, workplaces and other social settings. Highly recommended.
I learnt so much about myself reading this book, thoroughly enjoyed it!!!
As a self-confessed introvert, I gravitate heavily towards this book. However, the religious content is uncomfortable, and makes it all too difficult to take the author seriously. A pastor who feels "god" doesn't "love him" because of his introversion? Please. I get that the author is American, and has to cater to her market, but I was truly hoping for something a little more science-based, than stories about deluded humans who feel uneasy about their mythical rulers. Perhaps it is in an attempt to extrapolate on the overall, quite simple, point; there's nothing "wrong" with introversion.
