I had, over the years, searched on the Internet and never stumbled on "social anxiety" before. When I did, it was as if I was reading a transcript of what was going on in my head every day. All my quirks, fears, hang ups etc. were textbook examples of what defines SAD. I immediately bought about 7 books on the topic. This book so far has changed my entire outlook the most, almost instantly. I hope I am not jumping the gun, but I feel like a huge weight has been lifted, realizing that virtually every oddball symptom I have exhibited is actually quite common. Not wanting to eat in front of others, poor eye contact, assuming others are focused on my every move and mistake. All of these symptoms are very common for the disorder and quite manageable once you start dissecting what is going on in your mind. Cannot be happier I made this purchase.
