Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking

(Inbunden)
Beskrivning:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - Experience the book that started the quiet revolution



"A smart, lively book about the value of silence and solitude."--Daniel Gilbert, author of Stumbling on Happiness



NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY People - O: The Oprah Magazine - Christian Science Monitor - Inc. - Library Journal - Kirkus Reviews



At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over working in teams. It is to introverts--Rosa Parks, Chopin, Dr. Seuss, Steve Wozniak--that we owe many of the great contributions to society.

In Quiet, Susan Cain argues that we dramatically undervalue introverts and shows how much we lose in doing so. She charts the rise of the Extrovert Ideal throughout the twentieth century and explores how deeply it has come to permeate our culture. She also introduces us to successful introverts--from a witty, high-octane public speaker who recharges in solitude after his talks, to a record-breaking salesman who quietly taps into the power of questions. Passionately argued, superbly researched, and filled with indelible stories of real people, Quiet has the power to permanently change how we see introverts and, equally important, how they see themselves.

    Är man intresserad av detta område finns det knappast en bättre bok att börja med. Välskriven, välinformerad och med en sympatisk grundton.
