Is anyone else confused about how it is already March of 2015 yet? When are we getting those dry it themselves jackets and hovercars that Doc Brown showed us?
Since it is a new month, it is time for us to start a new book at the #NovelTea Book Club, and a new hostess for the month, Amy Schubert whom is the creative genius behind Lemon & Raspberry.
What are we reading in March? It’s nonfiction. Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking. From the cover:
The book that started the Quiet Revolution
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. It is to introverts—Rosa Parks, Chopin, Dr. Seuss, Steve Wozniak—that we owe many of the great contributions to society.
In Quiet, Susan Cain argues that we dramatically undervalue introverts and shows how much we lose in doing so. She charts the rise of the Extrovert Ideal throughout the twentieth century and explores how deeply it has come to permeate our culture. She also introduces us to successful introverts—from a witty, high-octane public speaker who recharges in solitude after his talks, to a record-breaking salesman who quietly taps into the power of questions. Passionately argued, superbly researched, and filled with indelible stories of real people,Quiet has the power to permanently change how we see introverts and, equally important, how they see themselves.
