Quiet Much?

Normally, the books I read tend towards classics, Christian, fantasy, or juvenile fiction, with a little bit of educational philosophy thrown into the mix.  Lately, however, I've been reading a wonderful book by the name of Quiet:  The Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking.  Written by Susan Cain, this book explores the strengths of people who possess that personality called introversion.  Ms. Cain writes that approximately one-half or slightly less of our population are introverts.  Yet our society is definitely one that celebrates the qualities of extroversion.

For an excellent teaser, watch this TED talk, given by the author herself.
