Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain does something that few other books do: it helps you to better understand everyone in your life, including yourself! As the author skillfully explains, everybody - your friends, children, spouses, parents, coworkers, etc. - all fall somewhere along the spectrum between highly introverted and highly extroverted. Cain's meticiulously researched, yet very readable book, helps the reader understand how these types of personalities vary, how they can successfully interact with one another, and how they can excel in different aspects of their life, from home and family to school and work.
