Publisher's Summary

Everyone feels foolish, embarrassed, judged or criticised at times, but this becomes a problem when it undermines your confidence and prevents you from doing what you want to do. Extreme social anxiety and shyness can be crippling, but they are readily treated using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).  

In this fully revised and updated edition, Dr Gillian Butler provides a practical, easy-to-use self-help course which will be invaluable for those suffering from all degrees of social anxiety.  

Overcoming self-help guides use effective therapeutic techniques to treat long-standing and disabling conditions, both psychological and physical.

maybe just not for me

a lot fluff. might help you understand why you feel or act a certain way. I've noted all the exercises lists for note taking to create cards or pages to practice socializing or breaking bad behaviors. might add a star based on that.

start at section 2 if the first part is a slog.

The overall message of this book is be yourself

I love the overcoming books, but this one was the least helpful. Yes it makes sense to be yourself in relationships and friendships, but you cannot be yourself at work. At work you are required not to tell customers or workmates what you think of them and their behaviour - which I would if I were able to be myself and give an honest response. If work is the cause of your social anxiety, I would recommend reading etiquette and body language books instead, or at least as well as this book, because they helped me far more than this book.
