Review: Quiet, In defense of introversion

I loved this book!This is a compelling and very well-written book. I hope it will do very well. 

The author is raising very important points and has done so in a well researched and thoughtful work.  It's all about introverts in a culture that celebrates extroversion. We have a personality worshiping culture and the new social media has only made it worse. 

Everyone on Facebook is a performer. Despite 1/3 to 1/2 of the population being introverts, everything in our culture from parenting to school to work to socializing celebrates and rewards extroversion. Some of the most creative and brilliant creators and thinkers in history were introverts. 

The theme of this work is that introverts have a great deal to offer the world and that we are making a mistake by not accommodating and encouraging this important personality type.

As I read the book I felt that I was reading a how-to manual for me. I would recommend this book to anyone who is a much-misunderstood introvert or knows such a person. do not think you will be disappointed.
