    Inhaltsangabe

    Brought to you by Penguin. 

    Quiet, the Sunday Times and New York Times best seller by Susan Cain, will permanently change how we see introverts - and how you see yourself. 

    Our lives are driven by a fact most of us can't name and don't understand: whether we're an introvert or an extrovert. This defines who our friends and lovers are, which careers we choose and whether we blush when we're embarrassed. 

    At least a third of us are on the introverted side. Some of the world's most talented people are introverts. Without them, we wouldn't have the Apple computer, the theory of relativity and Van Gogh's sunflowers. 

    Yet extroverts have taken over. Shyness, sensitivity and seriousness are often seen as being negative. Introverts feel reproached for being the way they are.

    In Quiet, Susan Cain shows how the brain chemistry of introverts and extroverts differs and how society misunderstands and undervalues introverts. She gives introverts the tools to better understand themselves and take full advantage of their strengths.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "I can't get Quiet out of my head. It is an important book - so persuasive and timely and heartfelt it should inevitably effect change in schools and offices." (Jon Ronson, The Guardian)

    "Susan Cain's Quiet has sparked a quiet revolution...perhaps rather than sitting back and asking people to speak up, managers and company leaders might lean forward and listen." (Megan Walsh, The Times)

    "Quiet is a very timely book...maybe the extrovert ideal is no longer as powerful as it was; perhaps it is time we all stopped to listen to the still, small voice of calm." (Daisy Goodwin, The Sunday Times)

    One of my favorites

    This book exceeded my expectations. Ever wondered whether you are an introvert or extrovert? It is probably not that black and white, right?! This book will make you look at yourself and others from a new perspective. You will surprise yourself.

    Challenges ideas which have become common wisdom, dense and to the point, great narrator, entertaining, thoughtful, insightful, eye opening, worth to re-read.

    Very insightful

    This book had a significant impact on how I see myself and others. Well researched, thoughtfully written, and well narrated. I couldn't stop listening.

    Diversity is the real power

    That every human being is different and that depending on the circumstances an assumed weakness can be a strength and vice versa is not a major enlightment. Susan Cains story of the intraverts who indeed sometime achieve more than those assumed "achievers" is very well crafted. She has also embedded skillfully a couple of modern theories about the functioning of the brain, which are an interesting read, but lack somewhat substance. On the whole it is an interesting read but the writer falls into the trap of taking the audience for too stupid to understand the theories to their full extend: a real pity for a very interesting topic. As far as the narator is concerned: once you get used to the voice, it makes the story real as the softspoken voice reminds you that it is indeed a story of an intravert. Yes, I have learned something from the booK : extraverts & intraverts : it is the right mix that brings the real power.

    Die Geschichte ist gut nur leider zu lang

    Es ist einfach viel zu oft viel zu lang und versucht alles in Introvertiert und Extrovertiert zu unterteilen, obwohl es viel mehr Menschen gibt die irgendwo in der Mitte sind also Ambervertiert.
    Aber für Eltern mit Introvertierten Kindern sind am Schluss noch einige gute Ratschläge!

    Brilliant!

    Well researched and therefore quite long. But, hugely encouraging and freeing for Introverts! Thank you!
