Quiet by Susan Cain

Quiet

I’m going to lie. The reason I initially picked this book up in the shop was because of the cover. Maybe it’s the association with Apple, maybe it’s the Beatles, but there’s something about that plain white cover that stood out for its sheer understatedness (not sure that’s a real word but it should be). As a read the description I got intrigued. As I read the book I found myself really enjoying it. It was different to every other book like this I’ve read. As Cain states we’re told to think that being outgoing, extrovert, a networking etc is the way to get ahead. In my own work as a trainer it’s those skills we often try to get people to improve in. But this was about a different way of going about it all. Certainly thought provoking and contains some ideas I am going to think about incorporating in my training.
