At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over working in teams. In QUIET, Susan Cain argues that we dramatically undervalue introverts and shows how much we lose in doing so.
