Quiet: the power of introverts in a world that can't stop talking by Susan Cain — At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. People who prefer listening to speaking, reading to partying; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over brainstorming in teams. Although often labeled "quiet," it is to introverts that we owe many of the great contributions to society--from van Gogh's Sunflowers to the invention of the personal computer. Passionately argued, impressively researched, and filled with indelible stories of real people, Quiet shows how dramatically we undervalue introverts, and how much we lose in doing so.

While her books did not receive critical acclaim, Ms. Dailey preferred to listen to the opinions of her readers and was quoted as saying, “One of the things that to me is the biggest compliment any writer can get is hearing from the ones who say, ‘I used to think reading was boring until I picked up one of your books.’ That’s great, because I know that if they read my books they’re going to read other books; they’re going to go back to reading again.”
