Quiet Book Review - www.randomolive.com

Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain is a book that documents the science and success of introverts in an extroverted society.


Cain tells personal stories and the stories of other introverts to illustrate the perspective of the introverted mind. The stories (and research cited) are more narrative than outline format. The book covers topics of the current extroverted ideal in society, the introverted psychology, and recommended actions of how to co-exist.


As sometime who is quite introverted, I appreciated reading about the background of how we tick. It was mostly useful to read about the common misconceptions and the cited research.

Useful For

Everyone who is an introvert or works/lives with an introvert. This will increase the ability to understand background personality differences and what it means to really re-charge. The book is pretty information-dense; a feature (not a bug) of its comprehensiveness.
