Last year before I headed off on my big trip to New York, I wanted to load up some books onto my Kindle app for the flight, so I asked for some book suggestions on Twitter. Thomas Baekdal tweeted about Susan Cain’s book Quiet, the Power of Introverts in a world that can’t stop talking and I’m grateful for his recommendation …I really enjoyed it. Now, this isn’t a sponsored post. It’s one of those coincidental things where I liked a book, and Penguin happened to offer me five copies to give away!
Susan’s book is wonderful because it gives introverts permission to be creative without having to put on big, bold personalities. You can watch her TED talk here (Bill Gates recently named it as one of his top 13 TED talks!)
Creativity doesn’t have to be big, bold and assertive either. It doesn’t have to make an announcement when you see it “I’m HERE!” to make an entrance. And as Susan Cain points out in her TED talk, some of the most creative people are not the loudest.
So, if you would like to get your hands on her book Quiet all you need to do is this:
1. You’ll need to live in Australia – sorry, but postage costs would make it too expensive for me to post overseas.
2. Leave a comment below before midnight Sunday 10th March 2013
linking to one of your own photos (I’ll make it easier for you…just leave a comment!)
3. I will draw 5 random people from the comments below and email them to arrange delivery of the book.
