The book that started the Quiet Revolution
At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over working in teams. It is to introverts—Rosa Parks, Chopin, Dr. Seuss, Steve Wozniak—that we owe many of the great contributions to society.
In Quiet, Susan Cain argues that we dramatically undervalue introverts and shows how much we lose in doing so. She charts the rise of the Extrovert Ideal throughout the twentieth century and explores how deeply it has come to permeate our culture. She also introduces us to successful introverts—from a witty, high-octane public speaker who recharges in solitude after his talks, to a record-breaking salesman who quietly taps into the power of questions. Passionately argued, superbly researched, and filled with indelible stories of real people, Quiet has the power to permanently change how we see introverts and, equally important, how they see themselves.

It is an intereting book with some science facts. I found it, however, boring in some chapters - the author goes on too much on repetitive stuff. I identified with the subject but it did not make much a difference to me. I only read it to the end because I am the persistent type - otherwise, I would probably have left 3-4 chapters unread.
I've constantly felt bad about being introverted, just like others made me feel bad about myself. This book helped me understand my personality and who I am. Now I feel so much better about myself and what I can do without having to change to fill in a certain type of stereotype that's always been associated with success. Thank you, Susan Cain, for such a wonderful book.
Price Gouging Much?...
Um, yeah Apple, I bought the book on Kindle for $3.36. Wanted to get it here, but with the whole $11.99….well, you know, not cool. Trying to understand right now.
