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

Extroverts may win "most popular," but author Susan Cain says their quieter counterparts deserve a second look. The talents of introverts may be less pronounced, but can be just as valuable at home, work and across society.

Cain explains her perspective in the bestsellerĀ Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking, Case Western Reserve University's 2013 Common Reading selection for first-year undergraduates.

The Common Reading Program was started in 2002 for first-year students. New undergraduate students are given a common reading assignment during the summer. The assigned book then serves as a basis for programs and discussions beginning at orientation and continuing through the fall semester. Learn more.
