No Marketing Blurb
Marvellous. The most important book published for a decade - Lynne Truss Sunday Telegraph
Quiet is a very timely book, and Cain's central thesis is fresh and important. Maybe the extrovert ideal is no longer as powerful as it was; perhaps it is time we all stopped to listen to the still, small voice of calm - Daisy Goodwin The Sunday Times
Susan Cain's Quiet has sparked a quiet revolution. In our booming culture, hers is a still, small voice that punches above its weight. Perhaps rather than sitting back and asking people to speak up, managers and company leaders might lean forward and listen - Megan Walsh The Times
I can't get Quiet out of my head. It is an important book - so persuasive and timely and heartfelt it should inevitably effect change in schools and offices - Jon Ronson The Guardian
A startling, important, and readable page-turner - Naomi Wolf, author of The Beauty Myth
