4.0 out of 5 stars The Shyness and Social Anxiety Workbook June 5 2011
I like the functionality and practicality of the format of this workbook. It a down-to-earth-no-beating-around-the-bush workbook. I would recommend this to anyone who either is a parent of a child suffering from social anxiety or a professional who is working with someone with that profile.
Go buy one. It's a good resource guide to keep in handy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very well compiled workbook/ March 27 2013

Very methodical book. However the Labels Meditation and Oneness Meditation CDs that I bought from through Amazon, was more useful in helping me overcome my shyness and gain confidence in myself.

5.0 out of 5 stars not bad Dec 8 2011
By comfy girl - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought this book because it was hard to find a sitter so I can see a counselor once a week. I worked through the entire book and gained much needed self confidence. The book helped pin point the reason for being shy and become bold enough to get out more and make some great friends. Would recommend to anyone struggling with social anxiety or shyness

5.0 out of 5 stars Cured March 20 2013
By Warren - Published on
This book has helped me get rid of the emotional discomfort that comes from interaction with people. Im sure that I might still act silly or aloof but it does not bother me or is it associated with a bad emotional feeling or me getting down on myself. I used to always feel uncomfortable with eye contact and my eyes would kind of do the watering thing. No more, it only took the first couple chapters and all the discomfort was gone. I finally feel normal after many years of being emotionally detached from society, I still sometimes dont communicate well or avoid some people, but it is not longer a big deal like it used to be, its just part of life. Ive read the "overcoming" book thats available on amazon, this book is far more effective, at least for me. The authors here are clear and ask very effective questions for the reader to process. So this book is proven to work, and without much effort I might add. Highly recommended
