2.0 étoiles sur 5 few interesting parts lost in a long book
The subject of this book is very important. Personnality psychology could change your life or even the world. Thus, everyone should learn about his or her personnality. But this book may not be the best way to do it.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 few interesting parts lost in a long book, 29 septembre 2013
Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : Quiet: The power of introverts in a world that can't stop talking (Format Kindle)
The subject of this book is very important. Personnality psychology could change your life or even the world. Thus, everyone should learn about his or her personnality. But this book may not be the best way to do it.
It's very talkative, there's a lot of boring passages where the author talks in great lengths about all places she visited and the people she met or admires. My fast reading skills were very useful !
It's a very american book, it's all about american culture. There's an interesting part at the beginning about self-improvement in the U.S. but otherwise it's quite uninteresting for non-american people (for instance the whole chapter about asian-american students in california...). The chapter about education was also very "american" and since I don't have kids I just fast-read it.
There are interesting ideas and studies here and there but beware there's a lot of sorting out to do !
My advice : watch the lecture on TED and if you like susan cain, buy the book, otherwise find an other one.

Susan Cain's book shows how our society from school to the labor world is made for extroverts people and the difficulty introverts, who represents 30 to 50 % of the population, have to deal with it. She also put a chapter full of advices for parents with introverts children, which makes sense since our occidental societies's extroverts bias impacts their education.

At times I found it redundant but I really enjoyed her academic approach. I also think that this book might not only be helpful for introverts but also for the labor world actors.

My oldest son is an extrovert, my youngest an introvert and their father an extrovert. The kids didn't take the test, the category they belong to is really obvious. The funny thing is that you would think that I'll have more "affinities" with my youngest and their father with the oldest but the truth is that our entourage considers that my oldest son and me are as thick as thieves, not the other way around. And when I complain about my youngest to his father, his answer is that we are so much alike. So not funny, but it's the living proof that we need both types.

I liked Quiet. While you can feel the author has a bit of an axe to grind with extroverts, let's keep in mind this is an American book written in the context of contemporary American culture. Someone had to speak up for introverts (isn't that a contradiction though? ;0) in a world that only seems to glorify the qualities of grandiosity, self-aggrandizement, brashness, confidence. I even discovered my own inner introvert, and began paying more attention to her...!

I bought this book (Kindle version) on the basis of the Guardian review. I liked it so much, I was sorry when it finished, and I have just bought a paper copy to offer as a present to a family member. I find it particularly thought-provoking, perhaps because I would consider myself on the introvert side of the scale. It has some very interesting considerations for parenting a "shy" child.

Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking (Relié)
I'm not all the way finished but this book just doesn't really spark my interest. This book would have made a vaguely interesting article but instead is just a long drawn-out boring book. I feel this about most popular psychology books. The basic idea is that there are introverts and extroverts, and extroverts get all the breaks, and well it just isn't fair at all! The first section, like 3 or 4 chapters, is basically giving example after example of how the world values extroverts over introverts. I believed her after one example, and overall it comes off as bitter not factual, even though she is probably being factual. By the way I'm also an introvert. I finally skipped to the next section, but it just never really picked up. If you like this sort of book, she does write reasonably well, it is documented (she mentions studies with enough detail you could check up on them), so I am giving 2 stars instead of one. If you want some popular science that is orders of magnitude more interesting than this try The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, if you like fluff, and are a bitter introvert, stick with this.
