Susan Cain's forthcoming book shows some signs of being a hit. It is ranked high on Amazon before it has been released (approaching the top 100 today), and, in my little part of the world, there is a long waiting list for it at Denver Public Library.
From her bio page:
Before I became a writer, I practiced corporate law for seven years, representing clients like JP Morgan and General Electric, and then worked as a negotiations consultant, training all kinds of people, from hedge fund managers to TV producers to college students negotiating their first salaries. My clients have included Merrill Lynch, Shearman & Sterling, One Hundred Women in Hedge Funds, and many more. I went to Princeton University and Harvard Law School.
From all this you might guess that I’m a hardcore, wonderfully self-confident, pound-the-table kind of person, when in fact I’m just the opposite. ...
The book is titled Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking. From early indications, one might guess there are lots of introverts out there, and they like to read!
I wish Cain all success with her writing life after law.
