Any additional comments?

Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over while expecting a different result. Over and over I tried ignoring my anxiety and yelling at myself, but things weren't changing. Reading this book was something new for me and was well worth it. I was really surprised at how many times the book mentioned very specific thought patterns that were the exact same as my own. I think the book is written well and organized well and I feel like I have tools now to better recognize my anxiety and overcome it. This book is exactly what I needed.

Helping me a lot

Any additional comments?

So far, so good. 1 week since i have had this book and i am seeing a marked improvement in my shyness and anxiety issues in social situations. Last night i even managed to go to a birthday party in a bar, where i had to arrive alone and great everyone and then make small chat all night to people i did and did not know. This may seem simple to a lot of people, but until last week this was very very tough for me.
I am hoping the advice I have got so far will last!

This book is giving me the strength and knowledge to start again, to start over with my life, to no longer fear situations that “normal” people find so easy. I won’t be controlled by fear anymore. This book has already given me so so much.

A Complete Life Changer

What made the experience of listening to Social Anxiety the most enjoyable?

Listening to this book honestly changed the way I think about social anxiety completely. It covers all the bases - everything from protecting yourself online to coping with and preventing panic attacks - but there's something about it that's just different from other audio books on this subject. The tone of the book is comforting and conversational. You really feel like the writer is on your side, propelling you forward. Rarely have I experienced anything like that with another author.

What did you like best about this story?

This book really offers a fresh and current take on social anxiety. It's really engaging and insightful. Unlike other books of its kind which can be boring and repetitive, this book offers new approaches and a better understanding of social anxiety.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Absolutely. I'm not the type of person that's crippled with social anxiety. I can go out with my friends and pretend I'm okay most of the time. But I've always felt apprehensive about socialising and I've had more than a few panic attacks in my life. One thing that really stood out for me (and did make me tear up) were the case studies. In this book, there are accounts of other people who have struggled with, and overcome, their social anxiety. I found them all very moving and motivating.

Any additional comments?

If you have social anxiety to any degree, I really think this book will be a great help. It's a masterpiece in this field and I honestly think it will be the best book of its kind for years to come. Highly recommend!

Incredible book, really helped me

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

YES. If they were suffering from social anxiety or shyness (as I have for much of my life) then I would 100% recommend this book.

Who was your favorite character and why?


Which character – as performed by Rebekah Amber Clark – was your favourite?

?? It was not that sort of book.

Any additional comments?

I find a lot of books in this genre to either be far too medical or just to be full of endless tests. This book was, thankfully, different. It was practical. It contained information, advice and tips that I could implement in my own life.

It felt realistic. And most importantly, at least 80% of what it has recommended has worked within a week. I feel so much better already and last night I was able to strike up a conversation with a complete stranger, something i would have found very difficult in the past.

Very grateful for this book and i highly recommend it!

I learnt so much for this.

Any additional comments?

I learnt so much for this book, helping me to finally deal with some quite deep-rooted issues with social situations and the anxiety i had about these things. Its not been an overnight cure but a gradual process over the past few weeks which have made tackling these issues and social situations so so much easier.
