Audiobook Review: Quiet Power: The Secret Strengths of Introverts

Quiet Power: The Secret Strengths of IntrovertsQuiet Power: The Secret Strengths of Introverts by Susan Cain
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Confession: I did not finish listening to this audiobook.

It wasn’t that I didn’t like it. I didn’t NOT like it. I do think that it would probably be much better in print format. The narrator was good, but the material itself is on the drier side – because it’s not fiction, obviously! As an introvert, I wish I had this book to read when I was in high school. Mostly because I think I would have felt more confident and secure with myself (maybe) if I had known what an introvert was and that it was OK that I just wanted to stay home sometimes instead of going out with friends. Not that I had a super exciting social life or anything. I think having the print form of this book would be really helpful so teens can skip parts that don’t feel relevant to their own situations – that is really the only drawback to listening to this book as opposed to reading it. Listening to half of it did make me want to read the adult version for myself. As a teen librarian, I do think it is a good resource to have in the collection to recommend to teens.
