Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Experience the book that started the quiet revolution "A smart, lively book about the value of silence and solitude."—Daniel Gilbert, author of Stumbling on Happiness NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY People O: The Oprah Magazine Christian Science Monitor Inc.Library Journal Kirkus Reviews 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.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Experience the book that started the quiet revolution

"A smart, lively book about the value of silence and solitude."—Daniel Gilbert, author of Stumbling on Happiness

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY People O: The Oprah Magazine Christian Science Monitor Inc.Library Journal Kirkus Reviews

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.

      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Susan Cain argues that the current American culture of personality values charismatic extroverts but that society would benefit if we valued empathetic introverts a little more. Introverts are not shy; they just prefer less stimulation. Introverts are also effective leaders and communicators provided that the cause is their passion. Kathe Mazur is the perfect narrator for this work. She has a lovely, calming, and reflective voice--yes, quiet--yet she still sounds friendly and engaging. Her tone is captivating and humorous as Cain navigates the world of extroversion--including such sites as Harvard Business School, a mega-church, and a Tony Robbins self-help seminar--as a fish out of water. She promotes creating stronger bridges between introverts and extroverts and recognizing the traits of introversion in children. A.B. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine
