What the community says about Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking
- "I am a teacher, a mother, and an introvert. This book was fascinating. This book is written by an introvert, and while it discusses extroversion, it focuses on the benefits of introversion. I usually have my high school students take a personality test. Students are always shocked to find that I am a strong introvert. They don't understand how I can speak in front of groups or lead a class if I'm introverted. This book talks about the power of introverts to go beyond their tendencies in situations where they are passionate about what they are doing. I am a thirty something secure person. I like myself, but reading this book made me feel like there are many other people who face the same feelings and worries that I do. It made me feel like I was part of a larger group of important people. Somewhere while reading this book, I stopped feeling like I was a good teacher despite my introverstion but that I am a good teacher largely because of my introversion. I have re-evaluated the way that I parent, and I am reconsidering the way that I do things in my classroom."
- "I would recommend this book for introverts and extroverts alike. It provides some great insight into the introvert's brain, and it definitely helped me harness my skills and personality. I have struggled with being an introvert in the past, and this book helped me realize that it can be powerful.""I really liked this book. It shares stories of real people that I can relate to. I think it will help me in my everyday life. ""This book encourages introverts to own and even be proud of their introversion, emphasizing the skills and intelligence introverts have that the extroverted don't. "
- "This book changed my life. I myself am an introvert and I have always found myself trying so hard to fit this mold of society. However, after reading this book I felt like I had to the power to just "be me." I also ended up listening to the TED talk that the gave after I read the book and I loved that as well. "
- "The book is a wealth of knowledge, about the positive aspects of introversion in people's lives. This book will help introverts understand and embrace the unique qualities of their introverted selves. It is interpretation however not science, so remember that fact. "
- "This book helped me discover what it really means to be an introvert and in turn, what it means to be me. Now I understand why I am the way I am and there is nothing wrong with me. Through this book I learned what jobs would fit me and what jobs would be really bad."
- "I think this book was a great meeting point about taking risks and being to yourself, like a silent giant. I thought it brought up good points with regards to how introverts are a powerhouse in a more quiet way; they stay to themselves and come up with their own solutions and problem solving without the influence of others' opinions. I consider myself to be an introvert and think this was a good read to see just how powerful introverts are and how influential introverts like myself can be in the world. Introverts like myself can make a world of a difference because much of our ways of thinking aren't influenced by the masses."
