"Quiet: The power of introverts in a world that can't stop talking" is a a non-fiction book authored by Susan Cain. The purpose of the book is to correct the view that introverts are a bane to the society.

The author starts off with how we got to this stage where being an "extrovert" is considered an ideal. She describes the problem of seeking extroversion. Then she sets the record straight on what introversion is (being silent is not one), how to distinguish and nurture it.

The take-away from this book is that society needs diversity (of all kinds) and it should try to achieve a balance rather than move towards homogenization.
