    How many introverts do you know? The real answer will probably surprise you. In our culture, which emphasizes group work from elementary school through the business world, everything seems geared toward extroverts. Luckily, introverts everywhere have a new spokesperson: Susan Cain, a self-proclaimed introvert who’s taken it upon herself to better understand the place of introverts in culture and society. With Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking, Cain explores introversion through psychological research old and new, personal experiences, and even brain chemistry, in an engaging and highly-readable fashion. By delving into introversion, Cain also seeks to find ways for introverts and extroverts to better understand one another--and for introverts to understand their own contradictions, such as the ability to act like extroverts in certain situations. Highly accessible and uplifting for any introvert--and any extrovert who knows an introvert (and over one-third of us are introverts)--Quiet has the potential to revolutionize the “extrovert ideal.” –Malissa Kent

I loved Susan Cain's insightful and dead-on TED talk about the power of introverts and will make time to read her book on the same subject.

Everyone should read this book. It will give you new insights into the behavior of your friends, neighbors and employees, whether they are introverts or extroverts.

I love reading (and one of my favorite things is quiet family reading time!), but there's somethin...

The power of a book…!! never left the habit of book reader if u are!!!!!!!coz its good habit that can change our life<<<#book quote

This book looks very interesting for both parents and teachers: wholebrainchild.com/ "Your toddler throws a tantrum in the middle of a store. Your preschooler refuses to get dressed. Your fifth-grader sulks on the bench instead of playing on the field. Do children conspire to make their parents’ lives endlessly challenging? No—it’s just their developing brain calling the shots!"

Quiet – The Power Of Introverts by Susan Cain. “Now that you are an adult, you might still feel a pang of guilt when you decline a dinner invitation in favor of a good book. Or maybe you like to eat alone in resturants and could do without the pitying looks from other diners. Or you’re told that you are ‘in your head too much,’ a phrase that’s often deployed against the quiet and cerebral. Of course, there’s another word for such people: thinkers.”

Parents....read to your kids, let them see you read, and encourage them to read!!
