I wish I had had this book when I was 13. It needs to be read by parents as well as teenagers
Whether you are introvert, extrovert or ambivert, there is plenty of food for thought here... this book says if you've got an introverted child, maybe they're quite happy - accept them for who they are'
Reading Quiet Power has given me a wake-up call, reminded me of my inner nature. To have some respect for the warning signs. Some of us need time to just be. Quietly'
For kids who want to roar - on the inside
Children and teenagers of distinctly non-volcanic natures will rejoice to meet their champion in "Quiet Power: The Secret Strengths of Introverts". (Cain's) narrative voice is kind and understanding as, with anecdotes, social science and practical advice, she extols the qualities of introverts in a culture that prizes noise and flash
Quiet discusses how extroverts in our society are bigged up so much, and if you're anything other than an extrovert you're made to think there's something wrong with you. That's the story of my life. Coming to realize that about myself was very empowering, because I had felt like, 'Oh my god, there must be something wrong with me, because I don't want to go out and do what all my friends want to do'
Marvellous. The most important book published for a decade
Quiet is a very timely book, and Cain's central thesis is fresh and important. Maybe the extrovert ideal is no longer as powerful as it was; perhaps it is time we all stopped to listen to the still, small voice of calm
Susan Cain's Quiet has sparked a quiet revolution. In our booming culture, hers is a still, small voice that punches above its weight. Perhaps rather than sitting back and asking people to speak up, managers and company leaders might lean forward and listen
I can't get Quiet out of my head. It is an important book - so persuasive and timely and heartfelt it should inevitably effect change in schools and offices
A startling, important, and readable page-turner
