The Secret Strengths of Introverts
Based on the monumental book, Quiet, which has spent nearly three years on The New York Times bestseller list, comes a new version, which focuses on the strengths and challenges of being an introverted kid.
The original book focused on the workplace, and Susan realized that a version for and about kids was also badly needed. In this book, kids will be able to read about their own sphere— school, extracurriculars, family life, and friendship. They’ll read about actual kids who have tackled the challenges of not being extroverted and who have made a mark in their own quiet way. They’ll hear Susan Cain’s own story, and they’ll be able to make use of the tips at the end of each chapter. There’s even a guide at the end of the book for parents and teachers.
This insightful, accessible, and empowering book, illustrated with amusing comic?style art, will be eye?opening to extroverts and introverts alike.
