Review: Quiet Power: The Secret Strength Of Introverts

Quiet Power: 
The Secret Strength of Introverts
by Susan Cain 

Publisher: Dial Books
Publication Date: May 3rd, 2016 

In 2012 Susan Cain wrote QUIET: THE POWER OF INTROVERTS IN A WORLD THAT WON'T STOP TALKING, sparking a shift in what being an introvert means to people. QUIET POWER: THE SECRET STRENGTH OF INTROVERTS, is her guide for kids and teens, discussing everything from school to friends to extracurricular activities. As a self-proclaimed introvert, I was so excited to read this book, and it did not disappoint. Cain used her interviews with kids to illustrate the importance of understanding and staying true to oneself while using one’s “quiet power” to its full potential. While extroversion is often seen as more appealing than introversion, Cain’s book celebrates the special qualities possessed by introverts, and offers techniques for utilizing them. I would recommend Quiet Power to kids, teens, parents, and teachers looking to better understand themselves, their kids, their friends, or their students.
