If you are an introvert, or at least you regard yourself as one, it is a must-hear audiobook. Highly useful book for understanding introverts and extroverts, mainly certain chapters were great such as Difference between American and Asian society, Roots of Wall Street fall in 2008 and reasoning what is the reason why people are introverts from biological point of view.
Yes. The book offers insights that are definitely worth hearing again. Some of her examples would benefit from a second listen.
Cain's research regarding the societal acceptance of introversion in the United States vs Asia. Its remarkable how prized it is to demonstrate extroversion in the US, where as in Asia, quiet intellectualism and introverted values are highly respected. I wish the United States respected the quiet wisdom and intellectualism of introverts more.
The quality of her voice exemplified the essence of "Quiet". She has a soft, and soothing tone that I enjoyed. Although, to a distracted listener in a busy environment, her voice may fade into the surrounding commotion.
I would recommend this book to anyone willing to reflect on their own personality or to those who wish to understand the interworkings of the minds of introverts. I wish I had read this book sooner! It would have been such a huge gift while I was in high school trying to understand why I am the way I am and why others are the way they are.
Not only does Susan Cain do a thorough job of explaining the mechanisms of introversion and extroversion, but she offers many helpful strategies for thriving as an introvert in an extrovert - dominated society. I am sharing this book with all my introvert knowledge - seeker friends.
Amazing compilation of knowledge, sources, and unintuitive insights. This book explains and affirms a lot of the issues people on the quieter end of the spectrum face everyday.
I really appreciated the reader of this book. She had a very calm voice, but was audible at the same time. Great insight into the introverted personality.
