Quiet, by Susan Cain

by stephenpalmersf

Interesting book about the differences between introverts and extroverts, focussing on what it’s like to be an introvert. Opening with the crucial point that “introvert” does not equal “shy” and “extrovert” does not equal “social butterfly” (very important distinctions), the book goes on to discuss how introverts react to the world around them. There’s perhaps a little to much psychobabble, and the book, written by an American, has an American style and feel, but it is undoubtedly interesting and a good read. I felt that I learned a few things from it.
