We will be reading Susan Cain's

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

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Experience the book that started the Quiet Movement

“A smart, lively book about the value of silence and solitude.”—Daniel Gilbert, author of Stumbling on Happiness


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.

Each time I partake in a Wild Within offering I am blow away by the people showing up. The facilitators, Kelly and Alasdair, have a unique approach to gathering that creates a safe, supportive space for everyone to share their true thoughts, feelings, views etc. I always feel I can show up authentically and that has been so empowering. I most recently attended the book club for Brene Brown's Braving the Wilderness. I really loved the book and attending the book club gave me such a deeper understanding of the material. I did not know most of the participants before hand and I was truly amazed and appreciative of their insights! Highly recommend!!

Great discussion and application to daily living. As moderators, Kelly and Alasdair do a great job of monitoring the discussions and drawing all participants into the conversation, connecting the discussions back to the tenets of the book. Participants were free to ask questions of the group and were encouraged to take the discussions in a direction that further led to understanding, created deeper meaning, or served the curiosity of the readers. I have found these discussions honor each participant in an inclusive environment, and create a great community of readers sharing a common experience. Highly recommended.

Excellent facilitators of the discussion. Kelly and Alasdair skillfully monitored the discussions and made adjustments to include every participant. They asked open ended questions specific to the general group, as well as drawing out individuals. The discussion took a variety of paths that all had a common thread back to the readings for deeper meaning and understanding. Additionally, the facilitators sought individual reflections based on knowing the group’s prior experiences and backgrounds. Rapport was established quickly in an accepting environment that honored each participant. I would sign up again for another book discussion with this group just to be in a community of learners that seek to understand. This was a stellar experience.
