Social anxiety and shyness can become so intense that they prevent people from enjoying life. This book is ideal for anyone who wants to learn to be more comfortable around other people. Drs.

The step-by-step strategies described in this book have been shown to be effective, are easy to understand, and are sure to help the reader cope better in social situations. Anyone who experiences significant anxiety when performing or when interacting with other people should read this book!"

Format: Paperback
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.

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

By comfy girl - Published on Amazon.com

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

HASH(0x9c253f00) out of 5 stars Changed my life almost immediately March 26 2015
By Jeffrey Gerardi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I hope this review gets someone to buy this book. I am 45 and developed pretty intense social anxiety late in life. I had no idea what was going on, though. I was beginning to think I was just a nut and I was pretty hopeless.
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.

By Warren - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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
