Quiet by Susan Cain.. It's what I've been writing in my journals (that I show no one!) all along: Introverts will change the world, and we're already doing it. Read up. Fascinating observations. If you have an introvert in your life, you will better understand him or her.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"Cain offers a wealth of useful advice for teachers and parents of introverts…Quiet should interest anyone who cares about how people think, work, and get along, or wonders why the guy in the next cubicle acts that way. It should be required reading for introverts (or their parents) who could use a boost to their self-esteem.."

Fortune

"In this well-written, unusually thoughtful book, Cain encourages solitude seekers to see themselves anew: not as wallflowers but as powerful forces to be reckoned with.."
