Bittersweet
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Sadness is your superpower. In her new masterpiece, the author of the bestselling phenomenon Quiet explores the power of the bittersweet personality, revealing a misunderstood side of mental health and creativity while offering a roadmap to facing grief in order to live life to the fullest. “Bittersweet grabs you by the heart and doesn’t let go.”—BRENÉ BROWN, author of Atlas of the Heart “Susan Cain has described and validated my existence once again!”—GLENNON DOYLE, author of Untamed “The perfect cure for toxic positivity.”—ADAM GRANT, author of Think Again ONE OF THE MOST ANTICIPATED BOOKS OF 2022—Oprah Daily, BookPage Bittersweetness is a tendency to states of longu00ading, poignancy, and sorrow; an acute awareu00adness of passing time; and a curiously piercing joy at the beauty of the world. It recognizes that light and dark, birth and death—bitter and sweet—are forever paired. If you’ve ever wondered why you like sad music . . . If you find comfort or inspiration in a rainy day . . . If you react intensely to music, art, nature, and beauty . . . Then you probably identify with the bitteru00adsweet state of mind. With Quiet, Susan Cain urged our society to cultivate space for the undervalued, indispensable introverts among us, thereby revealing an unu00adtapped power hidden in plain sight. Now she emu00adploys the same mix of research, storytelling, and memoir to explore why we experience sorrow and longing, and how embracing the bittersweetness at the heart of life is the true path to creativity, conu00adnection, and transcendence. Cain shows how a bittersweet state of mind is the quiet force that helps us transcend our personal and collective pain, whether from a death or breakup, addiction or illness. If we don’t acknowledge our own heartache, she says, we can end up inflicting it 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 one another. At a time of profound discord and personal anxiety, Bittersweet brings us together in deep and unexpected ways.

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.
