Publisher's Summary

Imagine you could be more social without all of that fear and anxiety holding you back.

How would your life change? Would you have more friends? Better relationships?

Social anxiety and shyness are a problem for many. With so much technology, it’s like we forget how to talk or interact with another face to face. Think back to the last time you considered approaching someone, but for some reason you didn’t. Even though you had something to say, you just couldn’t bring yourself to speak those words.

But what are you afraid of? Is it that you’ll be rejected? That the conversation will go nowhere? Or maybe you just don’t feel like you have the necessary confidence to keep the other party’s interest.

Well, this book is about the simple yet effect methods to help you interact with others and build lasting relationships. It’s time to stop worrying about what others think of you. I’m going to change your perception of why it doesn’t matter, and how you can overcome social anxiety. To help you be more confident. To overcome your shyness. To become a charismatic personality that can talk for days!

Inside this book, I will show you:

  • How to make a door-busting first impression that people remember for life
  • Secrets to start great conversations that float like leaves on a river
  • Powerful techniques to tap into charisma and confidence on command
  • A series of weird tricks to persuade people and get respect at a snap
  • How to know exactly what other people are thinking even before they do

Social anxiety is not a road block, but a speed bump. All you have to do is take the first step. Then take another and another. And in this book, I’ll show you the exact right steps to take to overcome those fears and worries once and for all.

When you finish this book, you’ll know exactly what to do. You will know how to approach people. How to persuade them. How to make them want to be around you. After that, it’s up to you. You just take action and watch your life begin to change.

This is something that really works

Suffered from shyness and social anxiety for much of my teenage and adult life and i have tried everything from hypnosis to numerous books. This one was different. It had actual advice I could follow. Am i totally cured? No of course not, it is not that simple but i am a LOT better and feel i get better every single day. Narration was good but at times her voice could be a tad irritating.

Opened my eyes

The way that this book describes the psychology behind social anxiety and why our brains react the way that they do is incredible...I feel that this book had been written specifically for me, it was that accurate. It will educate you and provide awareness on social anxiety and other things you may lack or are not aware of. If you have social anxiety and experience extreme fear and anxiety attacks, this book is for you.

Excellent audiobook on social anxiety

I am a cognitive behavior therapist specializing in anxiety disorders, and I recommend this audiobook for anyone suffering from social anxiety. It has a strong emphasis on cognitive skills to help you change your thinking about anxiety. The anxiety that genuinely provides tips and talks you through anxiety without coming off as condescending.

Amazing worth much more

It's one of the best books I've read or heard about on social anxiety. The author has been through similar experiences as I have with social anxiety and in his words, you can feel his passion. It breaks down to simple terms how to deal with your social anxiety, which is so simple that you almost laugh!

I can understand the hype

I got recommended this book by several people and I can really see why. Superbly written and narrated, easy to understand, not full of fluff and pointless information like some of these books. Shyness is a horrible thing and I have had it most of my life but so far so good, I am feeling a lot better and have a lot more confidence in my everyday life, thanks to everything I have learned in this book.
