I first came across Susan Cain when I saw her Ted Talk – The Power of Introverts and was so compelled by what she was saying I went out and bought the book.  As an introvert myself it was refreshing to read the evidence highlighting the benefits to both the individual and society of the quieter approach.  As usual the answer is not that one is better than the other they are different ends of a continum. The important thing is to be comfortable with who you are be it introvert or extrovert and to take the time to understand the “other”.  As we can all benefit from exposure to the “other”.

Cain has a good, clear writing style which is not 0ver-burdened by too many references in the text, however, they are all there in the notes so you can follow-up on any specific areas of interest.  For further information visit Susan Cain’s website.
