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.

It was quite an interesting book to read and I did recognize myself in several occasions.
Some pieces of advice also helped me but only a few because I live in France and it's of course completely different from the US.

I think that book can be interesting to both introverts (to show them they're not alone and that's okay to be introvert) and extroverts (to help them understand that not everyone can do as they do) although I found the author was sometimes a bit "harsh" with extroverts.

Comment survivre, quand on est introverti, dans un environnement scolaire puis professionnel qui survalorise le contact social, les interactions, le collectif ? C’est le défi qu’a vécu l’avocate Susan Cain. Elle en livre une analyse passionnante et étayée. L’alerte interpelle : les sociétés occidentales valorisent excessivement l’extraversion. C’est ainsi presque la moitié de la population qui ne trouve pas naturellement
sa place, et dont la valeur n’est ni reconnue, ni utilisée à sa juste mesure. Communiquer, réseauter, collaborer, prendre des risques, faire sa propre promotion, sont les comportements les plus valorisés en entreprise. Or si le collectif a des vertus incontestables, beaucoup soulignent aujourd’hui le besoin d’un retour à plus d’équilibre. Les démarches exclusivement collectives font courir le risque d’une pensée unique, d’erreurs
d’inattention, de précipitation ou de prises de risque exagérées. Savoir écouter, prendre le temps du recul et de la réflexion avant d’agir, imaginer des solutions sans contrainte avant de partager ses idées avec le groupe : ces comportements spontanés des introvertis sont tout aussi nécessaires à la performance de l’entreprise.
L’auteur met en garde les introvertis sur leur tentation fréquente d’imiter les extravertis. Elle leur conseille au contraire de rester eux-mêmes et d’utiliser leurs qualités distinctives, comme une grande capacité de concentration, une facilité à résoudre des problèmes complexes, leur
lucidité face au risque.

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.

Pas vraiment passionnant !
Une expérience personnelle dont finalement on ne tire pas grand chose et des illustrations et rapports d'échanges sans aucun repère.
Cependant quelques bonnes choses au milieu de longs verbiages : bref il vous faudra être patient !
Nous sommes loin de nos attentes : une réflexion, des repères et une méthode.

Un livre ennuyeux, long et décousu !

Je conseille un arrêt définitif...après quelques pages (j'ai tenu entre 70 et 100 pages, et encore en survolant les dernières)

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.

This book is very interesting. It can help you to understand and appreciate the value and challenges of introverted (and extroverted) personality tendencies in yourself and others.
This book is well written and full of interviews, scientific studies, anecdotes, and advice.
I recommend this book.

I wanna thank Susan for this incredible book about introverts and extroverts and I invite EVERYBODY to read it for what insights, changes and inspiration it can bring to our lives.

I found some aspects of this book helpful and educational. I'm not a big fan of the anecdotal format and found myself skipping over some of the countless stories.
