The Chic Geek Book Club meets every two months and we explore literature on a range of topics including female leaders, entrepreneurship, technology and startups. It’s a chance to meet some other (really cool) Chic Geeks, learn something new and have a great discussion.
Our August book is Quiet by Susan Cain. Here’s a little information about the book:
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.
