Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking

By: Susan Cain

In Quiet, author Susan Cain explores the genesis of our pro-extrovert culture and delves into how the bias in favor of those who are outgoing plays out in the American workplace. She challenges the current dominant values of American business culture, which includes forced collaboration and the belief that introverts aren't strong leaders. Drawing on cutting-edge psychology and neuroscience research, Cain reveals surprising differences between introverts and extroverts. She also provides examples of successful introverts and advice on how to manage a variety of introvert/extrovert issues.
