Product description

Review

Marvellous. The most important book published for a decade (Lynne Truss Sunday Telegraph)

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 (Daisy Goodwin The Sunday Times)

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 (Megan Walsh The Times)

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 (Jon Ronson The Guardian)

A startling, important, and readable page-turner (Naomi Wolf, author of The Beauty Myth)

I really enjoyed reading this book the last couple of months and I can easily see it being in the top-10 favourite non-fiction books list of every "quiet" person that comes across it. It is for me. Definitely one of the best popular psychology books that I've read and will probably ever read. The author does a good job discussing concepts like assertiveness, certainty, charisma, charm, confidence, introversion, sensitivity, seriousness, shyness, sociability and verbal fluency in an understandable, relatable and not overly academic manner. If you haven't already, it's worth listening to the one of the author's talks at TED (20 minutes) or Google (40 minutes) before getting the book.

This is a great book, sensible, well researched and well written. Susan Cain sets out her stall in a measured way making a powerful case for introversion as a valid and valuable way of being. This a balm and a resource for those of us labelled shy or quiet and a much needed balance to the prevailing cult of the glossy loud individual.

Thoughtfully and persuasively written, this book provides genuine insight and validation for those introverts amongst us and (hopefully!) a deeper understanding for all readers of what this means.

This was a brilliant read and I felt it was very relevant. I am a huge introvert and it really was insightful to read just how important introverts are in this extremely noisy world. I would definately recommend it.

As an ambivert with a strong leaning towards my introverted side this book really resonated with me. It is really well written and confirms everything I have learnt about my personality over the past couple of years. An excellent, worthwhile read for both introverts and their extrovert friends!
