Spreading the Quiet Revolution

Over the weekend two signed copies of Quiet (by Susan Cain) arrived on my doorstep.  I am an introvert, and this book was fundamental for me in coming to terms with that aspect of my personality.  It’s a great starting place if you are trying to understand introversion for whatever reason.

These books are for my dad and my sister, both of whom share some of my introversion.  And they also read a lot.  (Mom, I’d love for you to read it, too!)    It’s my way of spreading the Quiet Revolution, which is Susan Cain’s current initiative to empower introverts all over the world.

You, too, can get an autographed copy of Quiet, courtesy of Pickwick Bookshop.  Yes, that’s right: to order a book about introverts, you must call a store on the phone.  Bwahahaha.  It’s kind of like a sick joke.  Or maybe it’s just a good opportunity to stretch our extrovert muscles.  In fact, I had to call the store twice because they lost my order the first time.  Just chalk it up as another Introvert Challenge.

    I read this book a few months ago. I was so glad that Susan Cain wrote and published it! As an introvert too, it meant a lot to me. I’m glad to see someone else who found it inspiring! I hope your father and sister enjoy it too!

      I hardly even knew I was an introvert before I read it! Very enlightening.
