Bittersweet
The author of the bestselling phenomenon Quiet reveals the power of a bittersweet, melancholic outlook on life, and why our culture has been so blind to its value. With her mega-bestseller Quiet, Susan Cain urged our society to cultivate space for the undervalued, indispensable introverts among us, thereby revealing an untapped power hidden in plain sight. Now, she employs the same mix of research, storytelling, and memoir to explore why we experience sorrow and longing, and the surprising lessons these states of mind teach us about creativity, compassion, leadership, spirituality, mortality and love. Bittersweetness is a tendency to states of longing, poignancy, and sorrow; an acute awareness of passing time; and a curiously piercing joy when beholding beauty. It recognizes that light and dark, birth and death--bitter and sweet--are forever paired. A song in a minor key, an elegiac poem, or even a touching television commercial all can bring us to this sublime, even holy, state of mind--and, ultimately, to greater kinship with our fellow humans. But bittersweetness is not, as we tend to think, just a momentary feeling or event. It's also a way of being, a storied heritage. Our artistic and spiritual traditions--amplified by recent scientific and management research--teach us its power. Cain shows how a bittersweet state of mind is the quiet force that helps us transcend our personal and collective pain. If we don't acknowledge our own sorrows and longings, she says, we can end up inflicting them on others via abuse, domination, or neglect. But if we realize that all humans know--or will know--loss and suffering, we can turn toward each other. And we can learn to transform our own pain into creativity, transcendence, and connection. At a time of profound discord and personal anxiety, Bittersweet brings us together in deep and unexpected ways.

Bittersweet
In this inspiring masterpiece, bestselling author Susan Cain shows the power of the "bittersweet" -- the outlook that values the experiences of loss and pain, which can lead to growth and beauty. Understanding bittersweetness can change the way we work, the way we create and the way we love. Each chapter helps us navigate an issue that define our lives, from love to death and from authenticity to creativity. Using examples ranging from music and cinema to parenting and business, as well as her own life and the latest academic research, she shows how understanding bittersweetness will allow us, in a flawed world, to accept the loss of past identities; to fully embrace the loves we have; and to weather life's transitions. Bittersweet reveals that vulnerability and even melancholy can be strengths, and that embracing our inevitable losses makes us more human and more whole. This is a book for those who have felt a piercing joy at the beauty of the world; who react intensely to art and nature; and in a culture that celebrates toughness, who yearn for a wiser and more meaningful world. For bittersweetness is the hidden source of our love stories, moonshots and masterpieces.

El Poder de Los Introvertidos
Un libro que rompe paradigmas y demuestra la manera dramática en la que nuestra cultura ha malentendido y subestimado a los introvertidos, y que además provee las herramientas con las cuales aprovechar sus fortalezas. Al menos un tercio de tus conocidos son introvertidos. Aquellos que prefieren escuchar a hablar; leer a salir de fiesta; aquellos que prefieren trabajar solos a formar parte de un equipo. Muchas veces descritos como "callados", es a los introvertidos (Rosa Parks, Chopin o Dr. Seuss, por ejemplo) a quienes debemos muchas contribuciones a nuestra sociedad, desde los girasoles de Van Gogh, hasta la invención de la computadora personal. Apasionadamente escrito, investigado y repleto de historias de gente real, El poder de los introvertidos cambiará para siempre la manera en la que vemos a los introvertidos, y mejor aún, como ellos se ven a sí mismos. Susan Cain analiza el alza del Ideal Extrovertido durante el siglo XX y explora la manera profunda en que ha llegado a permear nuestra cultura. A través de investigación en la biología y psicología del temperamento, este libro provee diferentes ejercicios que nos benefician a todos, incluyendo ejemplos de cómo socializar si odias hablar de trivialidades, como modular tu personalidad dependiendo de las circunstancias, y como empoderar a los pequeños introvertidos.
