Publisher's Summary

Are you scared to open up a conversation, even when you have something important to say?

Some people enjoy talking to others, and some few men and women are even making an entire living off of it!

But FOR some…

Talking to other people is extremely dreadful.

You might feel like your heartbeat gets uncomfortably fast, your mind, even though you want to talk to others and have a good time, tend to overanalyze people and their behavior, making the situation intensely awkward.

“Oh they must think I’m dumb…”

“Damn, I should have said this or that…”

And the worst part is… Seeking help and reaching out is also super hard when you are in this position. All you can do is hope and pray that someone will come to your aid and make all these feelings go away.

That is why I want to help you.

Today, you will discover the techniques and mindsets which will help you big time.

Here’s to name a few:

  • Make conversation (and keep conversation flowing smoothly!)
  • Read body language (and send positive signals with your own body language!)
  • Tell stories in conversation (that don't bore your audience!)
  • Combat shyness and social anxiety (A little courage every day adds up!)
  • Date successfully (without manipulation or sneaky tricks!)

It’s not YOUR fault if you feel this way, and honestly, you shouldn’t blame yourself or anybody else…

It’s just that, sometimes, life’s a b*tch.

The question is “What are you gonna do about it?”

Gives concrete suggestions for those who have a difficult time making inferences, but still provides some flexibility for individuals to make their own rules and follow them.

Love it



I love how the author gives vivid examples and compare them so the reader could actually grasp the idea. I have read and listened to other self-help books and audio books and find this one the easiest to understand. Many other books do not give good examples like this one does. This audio book also made me understand better people who are different than me, which helps the way I interact with people.

Socializing Simplified


This audio book is a great way to get started with socializing. Yo won't find advanced tecniques . What you will find is straight forward and simple tips that seems like would work. No trying to remember a bunch of tech issues.

Not worth buying if you are an adult

Too basic, suitable for kids in school but not for adults. Narration is also poorly pronounced, e.g she uses ‘axed’ instead of ‘asked’.

The importance of knowing your own values.

ln today's world of blame, blame, blame, I really appreciate this book for underscoring the importance of knowing your own values (hopefully good values) and taking responsibility.

Very interesting book.

Very interesting book. There are definitely parts that are obvious but I like the way the author breaks down social interactions. It was cool to read another persons perspective on social interactions.

This is a great guide to have. I now have a better understanding of social skills and am putting to use what I learned from here. I believe the principles will led me to a life full of close friendship, satisfying connection, self confidence and tender romance.

Most of the information in the book.

Most of the information in the book is from the author's website, and it has helped transform me from an awkward, quiet, anxious person into someone who is comfortable conversing with anyone and who can easily make friends. I mostly bought this book to support the author and say thanks. The information has changed my life and can change yours too.

This book comes with direct answers.

This book won't tell you things like "be a good listener and interested in people" to make friends. It will not give vague answers like most social articles out there do. This book comes with direct answers to any social question I have ever had.

I wish I had it before



When I was younger, I was awkward and I am still at times talking to people. Some of this book I have learned by myself by making mistakes. However if you have shied away from people before and now want to be more social, this would be a good stepping stone to
start on.
