At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They're the ones who prefer listening to speaking, reading to partying; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over brainstorming in teams. Although they're often labeled ""quiet,"" it's to introverts like Gandhi, Einstein and Rosa Parks that we owe many of the great contributions to society.Passionately argued, impressively researched, and filled with stories of real people, Quiet shows how dramatically we undervalue introverts, and how much we lose in doing so.This extraordinary book has the power to permanently change how we see introverts and, equally important, how introverts see themselves.
