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.

Used a free credit to get this book. It sucks.

What would have made The Solution to Social Anxiety: Break Free from the Shyness That Holds You Back better?

If you have struggled with anxiety and shyness and tried to get rid of those, then you would have already done everything this book says. Nothing new or surprising. The book is only filled with stories of other sufferers. Stories that many people could easily relate to. That's it. No convincing "solution" to be seen/heard from this book. I suggest that you should just put yourself in more uncomfortable social situations and eventually you will get used to it. Avoid this book. :)

Any additional comments?

A must for sufferers of Social Anxiety & Shyness!

Picked this book up after suffering from Social Anxiety and depression for as far back as I can remember. That's a lot of pain in 43 years !

Following the exercises and taking on board all the advice has helped me overcome a particularly difficult time in my life ! I no longer fear meeting new people or become overwhelmed in crowds or endure the constant abuse of my 'Self Critic!'

This has been my Anxieties silver bullet ! I really hope it works for you to !

Thank you 😊

Do not bother with this if you are not a man

Written entirely from a male perspective for males.
The author makes a poor attempt to explain why in the beginning - for “ease” and “clarity”.
It doesn’t strike me as difficult to change he/him pursuing she/her to they/them. Poor excuse.
I got through a couple of chapters but couldn’t stand the brazen male-centric language and had to can it.

If I’d bought this in hard copy I would have returned it.

Amazing

This book has been wonderful . I didn't even know help existed for this type of fear. It opened my eyes to how much I hold myself back and don't live a full life. I'm so excited to start trying all the tools I have learned to overcome this type of anxiety. Highly recommended.
