      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Description

    Quiet is a book full of impressionable stories of real people. The book shows how much we undervalue introverts and take them for granted, and in the process we turn out to be the ultimate losers.

    Summary

    In the book, Susan takes the reader’s on a journey from Dale Carnegie’s birthplace to a seminar by Tony Robbins. She very effectively maps the rise of the Extrovert Ideal and seeks out far reaching results. Susan Cain goes by step forward in the book by talking to Asian-American students and how they feel left out at school. She dwells deeper into the topic by drawing on cutting edge research in psychology and neuroscience to show the vast differences between introverts and extroverts. This book can be most inspiring as she introduces the readers to some very successful introverts, a record-breaking salesman, a witty public speaker. She also advises her readers how to better deal with an introverted child.

    A wonderful book in the Lowest quality paper and the Smallest font available

    For the book: 5/5
    For the book quality: 1.5/5

    It took around 7 years for the author to write this wonderful book and it would take just
    glance for you to hate it. Not because of what it's written inside, it because of its worst quality paper and small fonts.
    At first Publisher,Penguin India, charging 320 rupees may make you think that it quite less what earlier publisher,Crown Publishing Group, used to charge, but believe me, as soon as you'll get this book in your hand you'll get to know w...

    Amazing book!

    This is one of the best books that I've read, and hats off to Susan Cain for this amazing work. The book talks talks about introversion in detail and the various behaviors and tendencies of introverts and what they seek. Susan, herself an introvert, is able to easily put the reader at ease, especially an introverted one. Quiet talks about the role an introvert can play in a world that is increasingly tending to overvalue to extroverted ideals, and this is why the book is extremely relevant. E...

    Masterpiece on this subject: Kudos to the author

    First of all I would like to salute the author for the kind of research she has done to come up with such a masterpiece. Not only she has provided enough research references to make her point but at the same time she has taken care that the message is being delivered to the readers without writing anything wrong about being extroverts/introverts.. She has handled the subject very beautifully and has explained both temperaments the best way..

    One thing I want to clarify is that the book is no...

    Quietly making Noise!

    This book found its way to my library through a chance introduction to this book in the authors' TED talk.

    It suits my temperament to read/write than to speak and this book attempts to explain why is this so. This the author does it with relevant research studies and examples and is impressive for comprehensiveness if not for thoroughness (of course, one would not expect this in this genre - popularization).

    It is a great read to all introverts and extroverts. One thing I noticed was that...

    I appreciate silence!

    I loved this book! It's all about introverts in a culture that celebrates extroversion. We have a personality worshiping culture and the new social media has only made it worse. Everyone on Facebook is a performer. Despite 1/3 to 1/2 of the population being introverts, everything in our culture from parenting to school to work to socializing celebrates and rewards extroversion. Some of the most creative and brilliant creators and thinkers in history were introverts. The theme of this work is ...

    An excellent book

    I haven't read a better book in 2015. Quiet explores the humane minds of introvert people. If your'e an introvert you'll understand the numerous difficulties you've faced so far in life and learn how to overcome them in the future and if you're an extrovert you'll see introverts in a new light of empathy.
