    Susan Cain: Quiet - The Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking. "You're told that you're "in your head too much", a phrase that's often deployed against the quiet and cerebral. ---- Or maybe there's another word for such people: 'thinkers'.”

Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain. Passionately argued, impressively researched, and filled with indelible 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.
