Segment #3: Guest interview
This week I speak to my good friend Susan Cain, who is the New York Times bestselling author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking, out today in Paperback. In the past year, Susan has taken the world by storm and has become a source of inspiration and admiration among introverts and extroverts alike. Her book has received a lot of recognition including People Magazine’s 10 Best Books of 2012 and Fast Company’s #1 Best Business book of 2012. It has been translated into over 30 languages and was the subject of a TIME Magazine cover story. Her articles appear in the New York Times, The Atlantic and The Wall Street Journal. In this discussion, she talks about her journey from when the book was published to now, her appearance at TED which has garnered nearly 1 million video views and her advice to aspiring authors.
