A self-proclaimed introvert, Adam Sloyer is the managing director of New York's Sequence Events
and president-elect of ISES New York's Metro Chapter. Of this Susan Cain book
, he says: "I found this to be a fascinating read, regardless of whether you consider yourself to be an introvert or an extrovert—and after reading this, you may have a different opinion. Quiet
dispels many of the standard biases against introverts and also showcases some of the competitive advantages. Yes, events is a 'people business,' but I found this book to reinforce how introverts can be just as successful."
