I don't read many non-fiction books in a year, but this one caught my attention because I am very much an introvert. Susan Cain explores how Western society came to value the "Extrovert Ideal" and how much is missed out on by doing so. She also looks at the biological differences between introverts and extroverts and talks about how these two types can better relate. The book was very insightful and well-researched, but never dry or boring.

Recommended reading for any introvert or an extrovert who has a spouse/child/close friend who is an introvert.
