This book is for men and dating

What disappointed you about The Solution to Social Anxiety: Break Free from the Shyness That Holds You Back?

I was hoping to get ways to change my social anxiety as a female nd all I got was a couple hours of this author putting himself down for not knowing how to hit on women and how her over come that fear.

What was most disappointing about Dr. Aziz Gazipura, PsyD’s story?

Should have given the book a different title.

Aziz has been there & lived it. But, not what I expected.

Aziz is likable to listen to. He does a great job narrating. He covers all the social anxiety situations. He brings you right up to line of action.
Qualify by comments by saying I am 64 yrs. old, but still fighting the big corporation work battle every day. For me, I hoped the book would prepare me with tools to use when you are in those social situations. Then, armed with those tools, I would be more comfortable, even very comfortable in such interactions with people. So, Aziz gets you into meeting someone new or in a group setting, after the first pleasantries, what do you talk about? Apparently, that is in other books. What are the best topics to get conversations going? What do males verses females like to talk about? Different age groups? What able creating Charisma?We know the Dale Carnegie material. Sometimes, I am keeping a minimal conversation going, but I am bored out of my mind. And, I don't want to bore others with interests of mine if it is not their cup of tea. When it's something we share in common, it's easy. So what are tools I can use for everyone?

DR AZIZ NAILS IT!

What about Dr. Aziz Gazipura’s performance did you like?

Dr. Aziz is personable and easy to listen to. He makes you feel like he actually cares and genuinely wants to help people. Dr. Aziz also has a fantastic website that offers other videos and programs if you like the material in the book and want to take it the next step. He also puts on events in the Portland area I am actually planning to attend spring of 2016. I'll update this review afterwards. In my opinion if you are going to buy just one book or audiobook on the subject of social anxiety and how to kick anxiety's butt then this is the book for you!

What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Solution to Social Anxiety: Break Free from the Shyness That Holds You Back?

I have been to a therapist and tried CBT and it really didn't work that well for me. This book has already done more for me than the 9 months of CBT.

The Best Book on Social Anxiety !!!

If you could sum up The Solution to Social Anxiety: Break Free from the Shyness That Holds You Back in three words, what would they be?

This is the Best book I have read or listen to on Social Anxiety. The Author also is the Narrator and you can feel his passion in his words. He breaks it down to simple terms to how to deal with your social anxiety so simple it almost makes you laugh.

What does Dr. Aziz Gazipura bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I love his passion. you can hear it in his voice.

I was really skeptical at first, BUT....

This book has genuinely changed my life. I'm not that old, only a Freshman in college, but anxiety has really started to squeeze the lif out of me. When I was younger, I used to love school. I'd talk non-stop, I was that class clown, and had many friends. Then a switch flipped in high school. All of a sudden I was scared, ashamed of myself as a person, constantly obsessed with what the older kids thought of me. I had many girls express interest in me, but I ended up avoiding them, afraid they would reject me (even after they made the first and hardest step!). I was determined to change this year, and Dr. Aziz's book helped so much. The length looks daunting, but it feels short if you're determined. Have an open mind, let your pain drive you to change. I hope you truely listen and practice these exercises. Good luck and thanks to Dr. Aziz for help me break the chains of Anxiety.
