Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop

Jul 9 2015

Stuart Ralsky, Ph.D.

I read this volume with deep interest and through two sets of lenses; one as a Psychologist, and the other as an Executive Coach. I believe Cain’s basic mission in publishing this book is to bring the reader’s attention to how underutilized and undervalued introverts really are. She begins with the premise that we live in a broader value system she calls the “extrovert ideal”. That is to say, “there is an omnipresent belief that the ideal self is gregarious, alpha, and comfortable in the spotlight.”

The Advantage was published in March of 2012 and is his first book that doesn’t employ a fable format. However, it shines in its ability to organize and convey with clarity the important teachings in his previous books, including the three I mentioned above.

Apr 23 2015

Terre Tuzzolino

Cairo (former professor at Columbia University) set out to answer the questions of ‘why do obviously talented leaders make poor decisions, alienate key people, miss opportunities and overlook obvious trends and developments?’ And, ‘why do leaders who genuinely want to do the right thing end up doing the wrong thing?’
