After this book, I have a new perspective on my own introversion. I understand myself better and walked away with a few strategies on how to deal with life, along with several scientific sources outlining key differences between introverts and extroverts.
Loved the content and loved the narrator!
Book gives an excellent overview of the topics of shyness, introversion, social anxiety, etc. and how they interact in a world with expectations that don’t work for quiet people. Scientific basis for phenomena are well-researched and presented in a way that is both informative and entertaining.
i liked the narrator. I felt her gentle tones was a perfect complement to the content. The message was clear, that we live in a world of extroverts, yet introverts have their own unique styles that are needed as well. Thank you for validating the introvert.
Thoughtful and well written, and great for leaders in the workplace to consider.
This was such an enlightening read, I wish I’d read it long ago. For that matter, I wish my parents had read it even longer ago. Had I known about this book earlier on in my parenting years (22yrs a mom now), I think I would’ve done so many things differently and seen all of my 4 kids in a healthier light. The narrators were great- I enjoyed them both very much. Highly recommend this read to anyone who is “quiet” and to everyone who doesn’t understand or know the importance of what it means “to be quiet.”
I enjoyed both the stories and the research Susan shared. This gave me a new invitation to be and embrace my authentic self. Thank you!
Susan Cain defies stereotypes of personalities with this book! She expands Introverts self - concept by explaining how we can be shy & timid, but also have the courage of a Lion. "Quiet Strength" Cain explains that 1/3 - 1/2 of ALL PEOPLE ARE INTROVERTS and supports her theories with facts and supporting personality complexity!
Very interesting and insightful and looking forward to listening to it again.
Interesting. I plan on listening to this book again as it was detailed and insightful.
I like the book but the narrator is so awful she is painful to listen to. Her voice is hard to hear and everything she says sounds the same,without intonation. The book was so good I battled through the terrible narration though.
Some audiobooks can be very interesting subjects but hard to get absorbed in.. There was no issue with that here, partly due to the great narration. Recommend!
Interesting and reflective informational. Well worth reading and understanding,
What an interesting way to look and work with people
I learned a lot about myself
Susan Cain has written a book that it interesting, insightful, and very relatable. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book, not only for the amazing content, but also because of the soothing and expressive tone of the narrator.
