Quiet

I'm at the Sundance film festival in Park City, Utah this week, attending the world premier of LUV, a movie my brother-in-law wrote. I've been able to mingle with some fascinatingly creative people, including some big-name actors. I'm a total poseur here, if you hadn't guessed that already.

I'm typing this on my phone, so I'll keep it brief. I have talked up Susan Cain's book, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking, quite a bit, and today it finally releases! I absolutely love the book. Its vision is large, as Susan covers the extroverted bias in the corporate world, in education, and even in megachurches.

I'll tell you one thing: Hollywood types talk A LOT. Which is why I'm hiding out with a copy of Susan's book this afternoon.
