Everything you need to understand or teach Quiet The Power of Introverts in a World That Can t Stop Talking by Susan Cain.
Susan Cain's book is a paean to the power of introverts, people who prefer quiet and who are often forgotten in a world that prefers talk and action. The author explains the fallacies of prizing the qualities of extroversion over the quiet power that can come with introversion, and she blames our obsession with extroversion on fostering disasters such as the 2008 financial meltdown. She shows the ways in which introverts often feel disparaged in a world in which their quiet reserves are overlooked and explains how introverts can make their way in our extroverted culture without losing sight of their strengths. Cain concludes the book with advice to parents and teachers about how to make home life and schools more comfortable and encouraging for introverted children.
