This is a summary of Susan Cain´s Quiet, 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 20th 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 in to 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.

This is a summary of Shonda Rhimes´ Year of Yes: How to Dance It Out, Stand in the Sun and Be Your Own Person. In this poignant, hilarious, and deeply intimate call to arms, Hollywood´s most powerful woman, the megatalented creator of Grey´s Anatomy and Scandal and executive producer of How to Get Away with Murder, reveals how saying yes changed her life - and how it can change yours, too. With three hit shows on television and three children at home, Shonda Rhimes had lots of good reasons to say no when invitations arrived. Hollywood party? No. Speaking engagement? No. Media appearances? No. And to an introvert like Shonda, who describes herself as ´´hugging the walls´´ at social events and experiencing panic attacks before press interviews, there was a particular benefit to saying no: nothing new to fear. Then came Thanksgiving 2013, when Shonda´s sister, Delorse, muttered six little words at her: ´´You never say yes to anything.´´ Profound, impassioned, and laugh-out-loud funny, in Year of Yes Shonda Rhimes reveals how saying yes changed - and saved - her life and inspires listeners everywhere to change their own lives with one little word: yes.
