Bookworming: Quiet

Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking, Susan Cain, ****
I will say up front that I am an extremely introverted person, and that informs/influences my interpretation of this book. It would have been handy to have had twenty years ago, and perhaps even better had my parents been able to read it. I'm not in a position to evaluate the rigor of the scientific research presented through the book's many anecdotes, but it does ring true to my experiences. Quiet is an easy read, with some interesting things to say to all sorts of people. If the subject sounds interesting to you, give it a go. Plus I would especially recommend it to anyone raising a shy or sensitive child.
