Quiet: The Power of Introvert's in a World That Can't Stop Talking

There's an old saying that "less is more" and in the world of the introverted it is really the truth.

As Susan Cain shows in her work most of the creative work of the world is conceived and completed by introverts. Could the painters Reubens or Homer have created their masterworks? Works that have influenced generations if they were not inclined to want to remain out of the way of others.

How about a patent office clerk in Bavaria? Could a gentleman with the humble name Einstein have postulated that there were certain universal truths about time and space and the speed of light, if he had been forced from the back room of the patent office where he did his major early work?

The funny thing is that though he was a man with many titles and degrees by the end of his life, Einstein could barely balance his checkbook. Maybe that gave him the freedom to look at the "laws of nature" from a different angle. You never know what you'll find when someone moves away from you or takes his work to another table so that he or she can be alone.

Cain, who has done meticulous research into the topic of introverted people, has found that introverts have done some of mankind's greatest work and thinking. Here's an example that, though it doesn't come from Cain's life, does, in fact from the life of Guglielmo Marconi. (Marconi, for the record, was not an introvert; he funded his company at the age of 20 with millions of dollars, all based on an idea that no one could see.) Many of Marconi's engineers - the men who build the transmit and receiving stations in the UK on the islands off the UK and in North America, were quiet, unassuming men who, when they were not with their families, wanted to do nothing more than spend time with their transmitting and receiving equipment; improving it. Indeed, the fellows who improved Marconi's "adherer" - the little device that made the radio work - did so after spending hours and hours in the lab by themselves.

Cain argues passionately about the value of introversion and sees nothing wrong with it. Why, just the art of creating the well-written and documented work, shows that it does take introversion to get anything accomplished.

Interestingly, Cain also looks at the latest work in extroversion and notes that some of the funnier or more creative work done when a person was in an introverted phase is important and, perhaps, funnier, than if the person had been an extrovert. There appears to be a delicate balance between introversion and extroversion and Susan Cain's excellent work shows where the fault lines fall.

The kids revolving bookcase is a unique concept that your children may find interesting. Revolving bookcases have always been featured in mystery novels and movies, as they provide a doorway to a secret passage that can only be opened by pulling on a certain book. You may find that you can give your children a sense of mystery by using one of these revolving bookcases, but they are not used in the same way as the massive bookcases used in the movies or books.

The kids revolving bookcase is usually a three or four sided bookcase or shelf, with only one side presented to the children at a time. When the kids want to get at a book on another shelf, they simply have to turn the bookcase which revolves on its stand.

You will find that these kids revolving bookcases will be the perfect solution to help you keep your kids' room organized, as the bookcase ensures that your kids have more than enough space for all of their books.

The best thing about the revolving bookcases is that they tend to be fairly flexible, and your kids can store all of their books and magazines on the shelf.

This will free up a lot of space in the rest of the room, and will provide your kids with a great place to store all of their favorite books, CDs, toys, and other items that would otherwise be strewn around the room.
