In “Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking,” Susan Cain challenges the pervasive belief that extroversion is superior to introversion. She argues that introverts — who make up one-third to one-half of the population and are often marginalized by society — have many valuable qualities that should be appreciated and encouraged. Drawing on scientific research, she makes a compelling case for giving introverts their due, showing how they can achieve great things both professionally and personally by using their talents to their fullest potential.
