    The number of people with some form of shyness has increased, and research now suggests that up to 50% of people experience it. Many of these are ""shy extroverts"" - people who are publicly outgoing, but privately experience painful thoughts or feelings. Social phobia, the more chronic form of shyness, is now thought to affect about 13% of people. People who are shy are also at increased risk of depression and anxiety.

    Would you be willing to try another one of Bob Sinfield’s performances?

    For fiction maybe, for self-help - not a chance.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was angered by the condescending tone of the narrator and prose. Perhaps if there was a different narrator I wouldn't have found this audiobook so downright offensive.


    Any additional comments?

    A lot of thorough research has gone into this book, the author needs to reconsider the tone she writes in.
