Up to 40% of people consider themselves shy. You might say you're introverted or awkward, or that you're fine around friends but just can't speak up in a meeting or at a party. Maybe you're usually confident but have recently moved or started a new job, only to feel isolated and unsure. If you get nervous in social situations - meeting your partner's friends, public speaking, standing awkwardly in the elevator with your boss - you've probably been told, "Just be yourself!" But that's easier said than done - especially if you're prone to social anxiety.

The subject matter of this book is something that we all assume we had a handle on. Listening to it however shows us our cognative biases and how they're affecting our relationships. Ellen Hendriksen helps us navigate the foggy territory of ourselves with facts, anecdotes and genuinely helpful advice on perspectives.
They're good books, Bront.
