This book is for all, but particularly for those who are considered to be shy, socially awkward or inept for any reason. They may be introverts, meek, submissive, or disturbed. Even people who are good at conversations, friendships and extroverts may feel shy sometimes. This creates hurdles for them because being a social beast and being a bold person is considered as a great strength nowadays. A survey report compared such people with their opposites and found that they are likely to be more successful than others. So, why not to learn the rules to being social and overcoming shyness.
Often times, we fail to enjoy life fully due to shyness. It keeps us away from developing our social skills, and creates more hurdles for us in our social life. We develop negative feelings about ourselves like people will not like us now, or nobody will become our friend, and as a result we lose many golden opportunities and we are left alone.
However, the good thing is this weakness is reversible. Anyone can improve their abilities just by practicing the seven ultimate rules to improve social skills and becoming a social beast.
These rules not only polish your skills but also make you an interesting, cool and likeable person with hundreds of friends and acquaintances. These are written after much research, meeting with some of the actual socially awkward people and recording their experiences. I also wrote my personal experiences in the book.
This was all common sense. I know what I need to do to overcome my shyness. I needed practical actions to put into place I order to do it and this book did not provide that. I know I need to talk to people first. But after all of the “How are you’d” and “don’t you think the weather is nice’, what more can I say to keep the conversation going. Horrible book!!!
Thanks for this inspirational book! This book has helped me tackle my own social anxiety. The tips and advice in here are priceless for any person who would see themselves as being shy.
Would you consider the audio edition of The 7 Ultimate Rules to Overcoming Shyness and Becoming a Social Beast to be better than the print version?
I would consider the audio edition because I am an auditory learner. I also like listening to these type of how to books while jogging.
