Quiet: The Power of introverts in a world that can’t stop talking

Susan Cain is my hero! Yes there I said it. Her book is brilliant, half way through it and I am already saying it’s brilliant. The book encompasses everything that every introvert needs to know from the scientific jargon to the single handed thought out quotes. I think that it all started when I started researching or rather wanting to know why “they” don’t understand me, is there really something wrong with me the way “they” say.  As usual, the thoughts just kept circling around the track of my mind around and around I couldn’t make sense of it so I leapt for the next best thing “Google”. Google the most glorious modern technology that was ever invented, yes some may argue against it but I love it thank you to the inventor of google!

I scourged the web as usual and there it was Susan Cain’s book called “Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a world that can’t stop talking”. I started reading it and immediately it felt like it was a heavenly intervention. Thank you Father! I literally could not stop reading it. It was like a breath of fresh air to know that everything that “they” were saying was because I am introvert and there is nothing wrong with being an introvert. Introverts are people just like everybody else. Scripture says that we are all different with different gifts and abilities BUT we are all made in the image of God. Cain’s book is an attempt to show the world who introverts are and that we are not what the extroverted dominated society makes of us, the book also demonstrates the both negative and positive sides to the matters discussed.

All the excitement that I feel and the joy that I feel when reading the book and when thinking about what Cain discusses cannot be explained on paper , it’s one of those “awww” moments. Cain makes reference to research and interviews completed. Half way through the book and this is what I think of it, it’s a must read for every introvert’s bookshelf this doesn’t rule out that anyone is welcome to read the book not just introverts. Quiet, has made it big and it is a best seller you can check out Susan Cain’s blogsite, TED Talk and book reviews for more details.  Happy Reading!
