The Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking
Author: Susan Cain
Category: Language Arts & Disciplines
A former Wall Street attorney, business coach and creator of ThePowerofIntroverts.com demonstrates how introverted people are misunderstood and undervalued in today's culture, charting the rise of extrovert ideology while sharing anecdotal examples to counsel readers on how to use introvert talents to adapt to various situations and empower introverted children.
Author Susan Cain claims that introverts are terribly undervalued in society. Beginning from the 20th century, Cain traces the rise of the Extrovert Ideal and discovers how deep it has been embedded in our culture. In Quiet, she introduces us to introverts who have found success in life (despite being told otherwise)—from a clever and spirited public speaker who retreats into solitude once his talks are over, to a trailblazing salesman who has found power in asking questions. Quiet is written with passion, its arguments supported by thorough research and experiences by people in the real world. It contains the power to reframe society’s view of introverts for the better, and just as important—if not more—introverts’ view of themselves.

But think of all the great introverts—Rosa Parks, Albert Einstein, John Quincy Adams, and Lewis Carroll, to name a few—who were great leaders and thinkers, but just have a different way of expressing themselves. Based on extensive research related to the latest psychology and neuroscience, and in-depth interviews with renowned psychologists and professors, Quiet looks at “the power of introverts” from a cultural point of view.

Before landing a spot on the megahit Netflix show Orange is the New Black; before wow-ing audiences as Lina on Jane the Virgin; and before her incredible activism and work on immigration reform, Diane Guerrero was a young girl living in Boston. One day, while Guerrero was at school, her undocumented immigrant parents were taken from their home, detained, and deported. Guerrero's life, which had been full of the support of a loving family, was turned upside down. Reflective of the experiences of millions of undocumented immigrant families in the United States, Guerrero's story is at once heartbreaking and hopeful.
