Quiet

Quiet-Susan-Cain-150 I found this book after I watched Susan Cain: The Power of Introverts on TED. I recommend watching the short presentation as it gives an overview of what this fascinating book is about.Susan shares studies and anecdotes about extroverts, introverts and ambiverts (those that fall in the middle of the spectrum) and how different cultures value the quiet and the loud. I liked Susan’s argument that western business culture in particular gravitates towards extrovert types and how we should not always believe the hype. Also, the section on why open plan offices aren’t always a good thing was very interesting.
