Quiet is a startling, important and readable page-turner. It will make quiet people see through themselves in a whole new light.' Naomi Wolf, author of The Beauty Myth

'Once in a blue moon, a book comes along that gives us startling new insights. Quiet is that book: part page-turner, part cutting edge science, it will change the way you see yourself, other people, and the world.' Adam Grant, The Wharton School of Business

'Quiet legitimizes and even celebrates the 'niche' that represents half the people in the world. Think Malcolm Gladwell for people who don't take themselves too seriously. Mark my words, this book will be a bestseller.' Guy Kawasaki, author of Enchantment

'Happiness is . . . Quiet, an extraordinary book that will change for ever the way society views introverts. Superbly researched and deeply insightful, Quiet is an indispensable resource for anyone who wants to understand the gifts of the introverted half of the population.' Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project

'An intriguing and potentially life-altering examination of the human psyche that is sure to benefit both introverts and extroverts alike.' Kirkus Reviews

Industry Reviews

Marvellous. The most important book published for a decade -- Lynne Truss * Sunday Telegraph *
Quiet is a very timely book, and Cain's central thesis is fresh and important. Maybe the extrovert ideal is no longer as powerful as it was; perhaps it is time we all stopped to listen to the still, small voice of calm -- Daisy Goodwin * The Sunday Times *
Susan Cain's Quiet has sparked a quiet revolution. In our booming culture, hers is a still, small voice that punches above its weight. Perhaps rather than sitting back and asking people to speak up, managers and company leaders might lean forward and listen -- Megan Walsh * The Times *
I can't get Quiet out of my head. It is an important book - so persuasive and timely and heartfelt it should inevitably effect change in schools and offices -- Jon Ronson * The Guardian *
A startling, important, and readable page-turner * Naomi Wolf, author of The Beauty Myth *
