About the Susan Cain Interview

Dear Reddit Friends:

I'm Susan Cain, the co-founder of Quiet Revolution LLC and the author of the award-winning New York Times bestseller QUIET: The Power of Introverts in A World That Can’t Stop Talking. AMA.

I’m a writer at heart. When my book Quiet came out in 2012, I went on a global book tour and gave over 300 media interviews and dozens of speeches. The reaction to the book was beyond my wildest dreams.

But during those months of non-stop travel, I began to hear from people. And not just a few: I received hundreds of letters, emails, and messages. Then thousands. Then thousands upon thousands. It was like that scene in Harry Potter where a waterfall of letters to Harry cascades from the Dursley fireplace. They all said the same thing: Until now, they had felt alone and were amazed to discover that they were part of a vast and distinguished tribe.

They weren’t writing just to express relief—they wanted to take action. So I joined forces with an amazing group of people, and together we created Quiet Revolution—a mission-based company whose goal is to unlock the power of introverts for the benefit of us all.

Thank you for your passion over these past few years -- I am grateful Reddit has given me this opportunity to connect with all of you today!
