I'm Dan Wendler, and I wrote this book because I believe everyone deserves a place to belong, and I didn't want poor social skills to hold anyone back from friendship and community - even if they struggle with social skills.
I know firsthand how hard it is to struggle socially. Growing up I was bullied, harassed, and excluded - no matter how hard I tried to fit in. It wasn't until I was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome that I put the puzzle pieces together. I realized I struggled socially because I didn't have any social skills. And just like any other skill, social skills can be learned.
The guide you're about to hear is a compilation of the social principles I've learned during my lifetime of personal social skills study, as well as the techniques I developed while offering hundreds of hours of social skills coaching. These principles led me to a life full of close friendship and satisfying connection
I believe that you, too can live a life full to the brim with friendship, connection, and love. I hope that after listening to Improve Your Social Skills, you'll believe it too.

The book begins with a moving story about the author's experience with social awkwardness. The listener can identify with that. But the rest of the book is procedures meticulously broken down into sections. While helpful, it lacks the effectiveness of the introduction. Strangely, the author does not follow his own advice on story telling. More personal examples from his own life with lessons learned would improve this title.
