Title: “Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking”

Author: Susan Cain

Rank: 6

Blurb: “Q: Why did you write the book? A: For the same reason that Betty Friedan published The Feminine Mystique in 1963. Introverts are to extroverts what women were to men at that time — second-class citizens with gigantic amounts of untapped talent.”

Review: “My final nail in the book’s coffin was the chapter on ‘Asian Culture’. The author went to wealthy Cupertino, CA and interviewed a half dozen Asian introverted students. She lists a few pithy, fortune cookie length ‘Wisdom Sayings’ from Asian and Western philosophers to prove that Asia values introverts and America does not.”

Footnote: Introverts are also the property of their spouses, and were unable to vote until 1920.
