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

I was first "introduced" to Susan Cain through her speech/talk  at TED conference. After I watched that video I was convinced that I had to read her book. So I went ahead and purchased it. 

Quiet is a great book for basically everyone - whether you're an introvert, an extrovert or in between. It's a great tool for understanding the way you're wired and accepting that. As well as learning how to use your strong points and enhance those that you need to in order to function well whatever your environment is.

I am an introvert and a Psychology graduate, so, I know how all this temperament thing works, but I can say I found this book extremely useful just because it approaches a lot of scientific information in an easy-to-understand style, and offers lots of practical advice and techniques. 

It is a great read - lots of scientific studies (great research!), true life stories and practical steps for both temperaments.
