About The Book The power of silence is often underestimated in the world you currently live in. Quiet: The Power of Introverts in A World That Can't Stop Talking is a rare book that highlights the benefits of introverts in a modern society. The author takes you to the place where Dale Carnegie was born, a Tony Robbins seminar, and Harvard Business School.

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
