Quiet by Susan Cain- Insightful and Valuable!
A valuable volume for the understanding of yourself and others.
The world seems to be catered to the extrovert. Whether in the job search market, the workplace or the classroom to name a few, experience and studies in everyday life seem to follow this rule. This book is a treasure trove of information in the presentation which follows the history and science of the study of introverts and extroverts and the underlining differences between the two personality types. Shows the extrovert ways of bringing out the valuable contributions of introverts whether a loved one, a teacher, a coworker, friend or neighbor. Also gives suggestions for introverts on how to gain confidence and adapt to the extrovert world. Highlights many stories that enhance the material being presented.
Extremely interesting and thought provoking research has went into the creation and execution of this book. As a mostly extrovert personality who lives with and interacts with introverted personalities I found that once I started reading I couldn't stop reading. The material was presented in a knowledgeable and compassionate style as I recognized others within the pages and gained valuable skills I can apply to my own relationships. Very well written no dull or broken parts. I was highly entertained and will recommend this book to others. I received this book for free from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing Group for my review. Very easily 5 stars!
