Quiet…Please!

It’s rare whenever I see two blogs discussing similar topics. So, it was pretty amazing to see two this morning on the same topic. These reviewed a book entitled, Quiet:
The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking
By Susan Cain.
I had never heard of the title, but it will certainly find a home with me fairly soon. The reviews, and a brief excerpt, discuss the place of introverted people in a world built on the idea that extroverts rule. For those who know me, I am definitely the former. I’ve told many folks that I much prefer books to people. Let me do anything, but let me do it alone. Of course, I’ve had people read that as selfishness, a lack of working to be a “people person” and any number of epithets that come from mostly extroverts who want everyone to be like them. Well, I’m not…and will never be.
So, I found the reviews refreshing. They were penned by kindred spirits that I can identify with. Here are links to the reviews:
