Summary of Quiet Book Description :

Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain | Book Summary This book is powerful in its own way, as it gives a voice to the introverts of this world.

Introvert refers to the people who prefer listening to speaking, reading to partying; who invent and create but are not likely to present their ideas; who are more productive working on their own rather than in a team.These people are usually labelled as quiet or reserved or even reclusive, but they also make many contributions to society - this is evident in everything from art done by van Gogh to the invention of the computer. If, like me and the author, you are an ...

Story Genius Book Description :

Following on the heels of Lisa Cron's breakout first book, Wired for Story, this writing guide reveals how to use cognitive storytelling strategies to build a scene-by-scene blueprint for a riveting story. It’s every novelist’s greatest fear: pouring their blood, sweat, and tears into writing hundreds of pages only to realize that their story has no sense of urgency, no internal logic, and so is a page one rewrite. The prevailing wisdom in the writing community is that there are just two ways around this problem: pantsing (winging it) and plotting (focusing on the external plot). Story coach Lisa Cron has spent her career discovering why these these methods don’t work and coming up with a powerful alternative, based on the science behind what o...
