Reviews

"Cain offers a wealth of useful advice for teachers and parents of introverts..."Quiet "should interest anyone who cares about how people think, work, and get along, or wonders why the guy in the next cubicle acts that way. It should be required reading for introverts (or their parents) who could use a boost to their self-esteem."
--Fortune.com
"Rich, intelligent...enlightening."
"--Wall Street Journal"
"An intriguing and potentially life-altering examination of the human psyche that is sure to benefit both introverts and extroverts alike."
"--Kirkus, " Starred Review
"Cain gives excellent portraits of a number of introverts and shatters misconceptions. Cain consistently holds the reader's interest by presenting individual profiles, looking at places dominated by extroverts (Harvard Business School) and introverts (a West Coast retreat center), and reporting on the latest studies. Her diligence, research, and passion for this important topic has richly paid off."
"--Publishers Weekly"
"This book is a pleasure to read and will make introverts and extroverts alike think twice about the best ways to be themselves and interact with differing personality types."
"--Library Journal"
"An intelligent and often surprising look at what makes us who we are."
--"Booklist"
"In this well-written, unusually thoughtful book, Cain encourages solitude seekers to see themselves anew: not as wallflowers but as powerful forces to be reckoned with."
--"Whole Living"
"Those who value a quiet, reflective life will feel a burden lifting from their shoulders as they read Susan Cain's eloquent and well documented paean to introversion--and will no longer feel guilty or inferior for having made the better choice!"
