I have read several other books that offered hope but no real help. This book gave me my life back. It worked for me. I judged this book by its cover and it sat on my shelf for a month while I read other books that did nothing. I am so glad I bought, and finally read this book.

saved my social life

This book is amazing. It truly holds the key to unlocking the door that social phobia bars shut. It works as a workbook, allowing you to write in your own stress management and anxiety charts, fears, goals, and a step by step guide on how to face those fears, overcome them, and literally better your life. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has even the slightest phobia's about meeting new people, or even self doubt, low confidence, or even to improve your social skills for everyday life. Before I was done with half the book, I was already the most optimistic, confident and happy, socially, then i've ever been in all my twenty years. And believe it or not, your social life variably effects all other areas of your life by determining the way you feel about yourself, in turn how you present yourself and how others view you, and setting the standard on your personal happiness. pick up this book! you wont regret it.

Useful, Encouraging, Great Book

This book is an excellent source of help for anyone suffering from social phobia/social anxiety (sometimes mislabeled as shyness but actually a lot deeper than that). I found this book very easy to read and follow, unlike some other books I've read that seem to be aimed at therapists or people studying the phobia rather than trying to gain help for it. This book has step-by-step plans outlined in each chapter that will help you get closer to overcoming your fears and anxiety. Of course, you have to work at it every day, and this book is very encouraging and supportive. Things like the authors considering our negative self-talk "maladaptive" (non-productive) as opposed to "irrational" (they don't feel we are irrational by dictionary definition) made me feel a lot better about myself and made me want to stick with it. I highly recommend this book.

great, best book I've ever read on the subject!!

I suffer from social phobia and this is the first book I have read that describes social phobia so adequately. The author seemed to read my mind. I could relate to so many of the situations in the book. The treatment plan is very helpful. I've read a lot about anxiety and phobias and even though I know what to do to help overcome their hold on my life, it is very hard to do on a daily basis. When you are trying to hold down a job and not let your co-workers know you have this problem, it creates more anxiety. But this book is extremely well written with good advice for anyone suffering from social phobia. I highly recommend it. It has been a source of great strength for me. It rests on my nightstand where I can refer to it at anytime. Thank you for writing this book.

A book that provides practical answers for anxiety

This is a very interesting books. Unlike many books on the subject that promise a great deal and fail to deliver, this book lives up to its promises providing practical guidance from every thing from answering a telephone to public speaking.The techniques recommended are those gleaned from cognitive behavior therapy through with the reader is led to confront his/her deepest fear:disapproval.After reading the book for the third time I felt as though it had come thirty years late. So many people have allowed great opportunities to pass them by or fail to make the most of their god- given talents because of fear.There is a strong temptation to think that with such a book in hand one could have could have gone farther in life.However, it is better late than never.
