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)

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.

Overwhelmingly engaging! One of the best books on personality (introversion v extroversion) that I've read in a long time. Very likely I will read it all over again!
