As a fellow introvert, Cain’s book resonated with me in a meaningful way. In her engaging treatise on the unique strengths of introverts, she points out that introverts make up about a third of the world and have important gifts to share. Having lived the early part of my career halfway “locked” in my introversion and not leveraging my full capacity to contribute — the book Quiet stood out to me as a resource that empowers introverts to realize their full potential in the workplace, and in life. This book is a winner for leaders of all types. It’s also worth noting that it doesn’t matter whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert; virtually all leaders are managing both types so even if you’re not introverted — some of the people you are leading most definitely are — and you can benefit from the insights in this book.
