Free Advanced Reader’s Copy of Susan Cain’s Quiet

Common Reads is feeling very generous these days, and luckily you all are the ones who benefits! We’re very excited about author Susan Cain’s upcoming book, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking and we’re offering free advanced reader’s copies here!

The book isn’t officially on sale until January 2012, but the title has already created quite a lot of buzz. Cain’s incredibly insightful article, “Is Shyness an Evolutionary Tactic?” was featured as one of the most emailed articles in The New York Times Opinion Pages this past weekend.

Cain makes the point that the personality traits of introversion and shyness (two very different things, as she makes clear) are largely undervalued and negatively judged in today’s highly extrovert society.  Yet there are a surprising number of valuable assets that come with these “quieter” traits. Reading Quiet will hopefully bring us all much cause for reflection and leave us with a new outlook on embracing all personality types, quiet or loud.

Susan Cain, a self-proclaimed introvert, is a consultant to major corporations and law firms on negotiation strategies and personal presentation style. Not to shabby. Visit her website at: ThePowerofIntroverts.com.
