Thankful!

Thankful to have found this book - thankful because I have finally, finally, found a "cure" / solution to life long social anxiety, shyness, and low self-confidence / self-esteem.

The entire book is gold but the second half is where it really shines, with the practical advice on how to handle so many every day situations. THANK YOU.

Changed everything

To say this book changed everything for me, is an understatement in some ways. My life has begun again. I am no longer petrified of everything. I have a distance still to go but I already feel like a new person.

I dont usually...

I dont usually leave reviews but I felt compelled to do so this time, mostly to a say a huge thank you to the authors for writing this book, because of the ever increasing positive influence it is having over my life. I am now, day by day, able to do things I never dreamt capable of.

This is something that really works

Suffered from shyness and social anxiety for much of my teenage and adult life and i have tried everything from hypnosis to numerous books. This one was different. It had actual advice I could follow. Am i totally cured? No of course not, it is not that simple but i am a LOT better and feel i get better every single day. Narration was good but at times her voice could be a tad irritating.

Overcome it

Though I still often get social anxiety, I can see myself getting better, and I’m more hopeful. It goes into detail on overcoming social anxiety, shyness, and its negative effects. Many people struggle with social anxiety, but there is hope for a way out. It also talks about people-pleasing and how to cure it. This is the perfect audiobook to learn about various solutions for social anxiety. This audiobook is an incredibly fascinating and essential addition to your library, with many good, well-spoken points.

A decent guide on social anxiety

So this book should be great, it has a lot of information. The chapters are well organized and laid out.

This book feels like ALL the usual information on social anxiety in one package. And if that sounds good to you then great but it fails to feel like a book and is more like several extended blog posts in one. That's not a bad thing but it feels formulaic and almost too broad so it acts more like a reference book. But at the same time, that allows you to pick and choose which of their many exercises to choose from.

I like how they have encouraged professional help and used examples with their exercises and the voicing was good. I feel odd with audiobooks with only 5 star reviews and yet the kindle is undiscovered. In the end I set my expectations high and it didn't reach it.

Gave me a fresh perspective

I got a much much much needed fresh perspective on life but more than that I got actual tools, tips, methods and step-by-step processes on improving social skills and overcoming anxiety and shyness. Believe me, if *I* can overcome my social anxiety then anyone can!
