I give three stars when a books is good. I reserve four & five stars for plots that blow me away. Don't be disappointed by three stars, this was a good book & I do recommend it. I learned a lot about myself. Being quiet is not bad. If you want to know why, download this book.
I wish I had had this book while I was being raised and then updated when raising my child. By following the almost completely opposite path my parents took with me. My son has grown up to be a remarkable caring intuitive and kind "true to who he really is" person. He was insightful enough to not veer from what made him happy, an environment that was restorative and to do things that energized him.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone raising a child. It will give you tools and insights on how to positively shape your child and their ability to have more self confidence. The outcomes of relationships they have even as toddlers affects whether they can develop the long term behaviors and tools to interact in their social circles growing up.
Coming from a science background I appreciated all her research and study data.
Susan Cain has brought my attention to something that effects me and everyone else I've ever known, yet somehow we have all been completely oblivious to it, I feel tremendously enlightened, and for that I am very thankful.
Reader's voice is easy to listen to.
I'd recommend this book especially to parents and teachers. This information would have saved me a lot of angst had I learned about introversion earlier in life. It's really a great book for anyone looking to better understand themselves, coworkers, loved ones...
Couldn't stop listening. Excellent Book! I wouldn't have even thought to think this to be an actual subject!
Loved this with grateful joy. The views of both extrovert and introvert way of existance helped to start understand many familiar situations I've found myself in. Also the voice and way of narrating was pleasant.
I wish I'd had this context when I first entered the workforce. It will definitely be a "suggested" read to all future managers/teammates if they really want to get to know me because I CLEARLY will not be inviting them to lunch to get to know each other . . . At least not without a lunch "break" after. ;)
