    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.

    Story

    If you would like to know how humans evolved and the role of anxiety this is the book for you. However, if you are looking for specific help in overcoming shyness and social anxiety, then this is not. The author is a scientist and the book reflects that. There is much scientific information and it is obviously well researched. It is strong on cold hard facts but short on empathy and actual treatment of the disorders. It is certainly not what I expected.
