In our go get 'em, grab the bull by the horns society few people take the time to notice the one third of us who are introverts and wonder what talents this quiet constituency possesses. Proud introvert Susan Cain is clearly an exception. When asked by an interviewer on our website why she wrote this book, she answered, "For the same reason that Betty Friedan published The Feminine Mystique in 1963. Introverts are to extroverts what women were to men at that time—second-class citizens with gigantic amounts of untapped talent...Our bias against introversion leads to a colossal waste of talent, energy, and, ultimately, happiness." With its superb research and telling case studies, Quiet serves as a refreshing corrective to decades of ignorance and woeful neglect. Now in trade paperback and NOOK Book.
