Quiet The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain
Our culture adores extroverts, and being an introvert I've often felt at a disadvantage to my louder, more charismatic and outspoken counterparts. Not anymore! :-) I was inspired by fellow Lancaster Christian Writers Group member and blogger, Lisa Betz to read this book. It was on her list of "Ten Books that Shaped My Life." (I borrowed the audiobook version from my local library.) Susan Cain's "Quiet" helped me to accept, appreciate and understand myself (and introverts in general) more, and also get a better handle on the extroverts in my life as well. Interestingly, my husband, Evan (based on Susan Cain's 'test') is an "ambivert" (a combination of both), which I didn't even know existed! :-) I highly recommend the book, especially for introverts. Cain also has a fascinating website called, Quiet Revolution. Check it out!
