Come Meet Susan Cain Tomorrow Night!

Tomorrow, Monday Feb 11, 2013 at 7:30 pm at our Historic Lodo store:

Award-winning journalist and bestselling author Susan Cain, whose record-smashing TED talk has been viewed over 3 million times, and was named by Bill Gates as one of his all-time favorite talks, will discuss and sign the new paperback edition of her acclaimed book Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking. Passionately argued, impressively researched, and filled with indelible stories of real people, Quiet shows how dramatically we undervalue introverts, and how much we lose in doing so.

Free numbered tickets for a place in the booksigning line will be handed out beginning at 6:30 pm. Seating for the presentation prior to the signing is limited, and available on a first-come, first-served basis to ticketed customers only.

The book that started the Quiet Revolution

At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over working in teams. It is to introverts—Rosa Parks, Chopin, Dr. Seuss, Steve Wozniak-- that we owe many of the great contributions to society.

In Quiet, Susan Cain argues that we dramatically undervalue introverts and shows how much we lose in doing so. She charts the rise of the Extrovert Ideal throughout the twentieth century and explores how deeply it has come to permeate our culture. She also introduces us to successful introverts–from a witty, high-octane public speaker who recharges in solitude after his talks, to a record-breaking salesman who quietly taps into the power of questions. Passionately argued, superbly researched, and filled with indelible stories of real people, Quiet has the power to permanently change how we see introverts and, equally important, how they see themselves.
