Would you prefer to sit in the house alone over going out for a drink with friends? Would you rather listen to a speech as opposed to giving a speech? Do you prefer working on your own as opposed to working on a team? These are all qualities of an introvert. If you consider yourself an introvert like me than this book will make you feel like your quietness is meaningful and not meaningless. "Quiet" by Susan Cain is the one book that took me years to read. This book is not an easy read at all (you can't just breeze through it) but it's important because it tells you that the things that you think prevent you from excelling in life are actually the things that make you great.
I like this book because Cain explains the value of silence as she speaks about traits that famous introverts like Rosa Park, Dr. Seuss and Steve Wozniak each have. Although these individuals are introverts they also have extroverted qualities that allow them to contribute to society in ways that you would never guess if you were to meet them. "Quiet" by Susan Cain allows readers to understand the importance of introverts and how solitude can lead to greatness.
