The book Quiet written by Susan Cain: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking. It is one of those kinds of books that make you think about the book long after you’ve finished reading. I will say it is one of my go-to and good-read books. Susan Cain delves into the world of introverts in an insightful way. She brings valuable understanding in how to either live life as an introvert or interact with the introverts you know. Her study helps to improve our relationships as we interact with one another. As I was going through this book I felt, besides offering some genuinely interesting material, the narrative is readable. Each chapter takes you through numerous case studies connected with real-life people making the results or conclusions of the case studies relatable and often applicable to someone you may know, within family or your known circle. We live in a kind of society where we identify introversion as a weakness because of the extroverted world in which we live. Our culture celebrates “personality” which can affect an introvert's self-esteem. However, the reality is that an introvert’s powerful qualities are often overlooked or downplayed. Susan Cain’s message is - Embrace who you are and your purpose in life. The world needs introverts equally. And when introverts and extroverts team up and utilize each other’s strengths, they are unbeatable. "Quiet" changed the way I look at myself and the world around me. It helped me understand so many of my tendencies and I could identify and recognize the value in what I have to contribute in a world of extroverts. If you think you or someone you know- might be an introvert, I would be sure to add this to your bucket list of books to read.
