The title resonated with me when I saw it was available at the library and thought it would be a good and different pick to read. The author takes us through what social anxiety is, how people can experience it (although it can be different for everyone), how we can overcome it and how to cope in general.

It's not heavy on the science and more of a how-to/self-help which was kind of boring for me. I didn't want science and talk about studies and hormones or brain structure or anything like that but at the same time I also felt there wasn't much here that was of use to me. It just seemed like there was a lot that was familiar or told to me before in some way and that this didn't bring anything new to the table.

That said, it might be good for someone who has experience SA but doesn't know how to cope or is new to this part of themselves. Would recommend the library, though. ( )

Finally was able to finish this one! This is a very informative and helpful book for social anxiety and confidence issues. Might even use the tools mentioned in my own life. Definitely worth the read if you have these problems. ( )

An exploration into the various issues which go into social anxiety and methods derived from the work of social psychology regarding how to allay them.

The author's primary purpose is to assure the reader, who she assumes has some level of social anxiety so as to wish to read said book, does not lack social skills or social ability: instead, they are hindered by (and often in fact actively sabotage themselves through) feelings of social inadequacy which lead to the types of reactions which the person fears in the first place. She attributes these to the aspect of self deemed the "Inner Critic," the voice which is heard by those with social anxiety to justify why certain situations are to be avoided or certain avoidance behaviors should be manifested.

The author speaks of her own challenges in terms of social anxiety and points out how social anxiety has its place and existence for a reason and how those who are hindered by it have many positive personality traits of kindness, care, concern, etc., parallel to it. She explains well the kinds of things which can be done to help overcome social anxiety: to push back on the "inner critic," fake it until you make it, persist and it becomes easier, realize that no one is really noticing the things you think are really obvious, but they are noticing the ways you're trying to hide, etc.

The author ends with the challenge of finding and making friends, and does well to advise people to find those in proximity who are kind and to be kind in return, and in such ways make friends.

In short, the author encourages those with social anxiety to be themselves, because they are sufficient, even if they don't recognize it.

Worthwhile for anyone who, in some aspect or another, has pronounced social anxiety. ( )
