Susan Cain, Writer

Susan Cain is the author of "Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking," published in 2012. The non-fiction book, which took seven years to write, immediately became one of the most talked about books of 2012 — a New York Times Bestseller, Washington Post Bestseller, Los Angeles Times Bestseller and a Book of the Month Pick from both Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

Cain was also featured in a TIME magazine cover story. A self-described introvert, Cain later embarked on a year of speaking engagements, including a 2012 TEDTalk where she received a standing ovation. A Princeton University and Harvard Law School graduate, Cain's first career was as a corporate attorney.
