A must-read book for everyone

This book goes really deep in the cause of shyness and defines confident in a unique way. I had never thought of confidence this way. I thought I was'nt shy anymore, but I figured out that I am. With help of this book I'm working on it

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.

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.
