An excellent and helpful guide

Being a shy person all my life, I find conversation and social events very tough but this guide was great for laying out the stepson advice to overcome this. Already (a week after getting it) I am a lot better and able to handle events and situations with ease. I am not totally 100% fine yet but I feel this book has helped me a lot.

Complete Game Changer

This book is a complete eye opener when it comes to how much our confidence and ability to engage in face to face conversation is regressing. It's definitely a book for anyone with an introverted personality that struggles with face to face interaction. It gives you the vital skills that are often neglected when it comes to successful everyday human interaction.
The guidelines offer invaluable wisdom that help you to show to remain present in the moments rather than looking awkward and rude. After listening to this book, I have definitely noticed that my confidence has increased in everyday interactions after learning how my social awkwardness translates to looking plain rude!
What I liked in particular about this audiobook was the fact that it was written by someone that previously suffered with social shyness. I will definitely revisit this book frequently!

Any additional comments?

This book has given me a huge help in my life, allowing me to deal better with situations and conversations that used to really frighten me or not know what to say. I feel a lot more capable now, a lot more confident and always seem to know what to say.
