Editorial Reviews

Review

“Social anxiety and shyness can become so intense that they prevent people from enjoying life. This book is ideal for anyone who wants to learn to be more comfortable around other people. Drs. Antony and Swinson have taken proven treatments for social anxiety and adapted them for a non-professional audience. The step-by-step strategies described in this book have been shown to be effective, are easy to understand, and are sure to help the reader cope better in social situations. Anyone who experiences significant anxiety when performing or when interacting with other people should read this book!”
—Aaron T. Beck, MD, university professor of psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania



“If you have trouble with social anxiety, you will find the book by Drs. Antony and Swinson to be an excellent resource. This highly experienced duo has provided an excellent road map to guide you through your efforts to overcome your anxiety and improve the quality of your life. Based on the tried and true methods of cognitive-behavioral therapy and on the results of many scientific studies, the techniques described in this book will help you feel better when you are with other people or the center of attention. The only thing you have to do is work hard and apply them. Best wishes for your journey along that road.”
—Richard Heimberg, Ph.D., director of the Adult Anxiety Clinic of Temple University, Philadelphia



“Drs. Antony and Swinson provide practical advice in a highly readable format. This book will be invaluable to people whose social anxiety prevents them from leading full and happy lives.”
—Murray B. Stein, MD, professor of psychiatry and director of anxiety and traumatic stress disorders program at the University of California, San Diego



“This is an excellent resource written by world-renowned and skilled clinicians and researchers in the area of anxiety disorders. Drs. Antony and Swinson present the most up-to-date information about social anxiety and its treatment in a way that is clear and, most importantly, that provides step-by-step tools for overcoming this disorder. This is a must-read for persons suffering with social anxiety.”
—Michelle G. Craske, Ph.D., professor of psychology at the University of California, Los Angeles



“This workbook by Antony and Swinson gives the millions of people whose lives are limited by social fears the hope to control their future. The book is clear, practical, easy to follow, and, above all, based on solid, scientific ground. The sections on troubleshooting are especially valuable to really help fine-tune the techniques. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who is serious about overcoming their social fears.”
—Ronald M. Rapee, Ph.D., professor of psychology at Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia, author of Overcoming Shyness and Social Phobia

The book can be used alone or in conjunction with therapy. The authors are experts in their field and they offer strategies that are solidly grounded in the latest research literature. The workbook format provides readers with the exercises and worksheets they need to do the difficult work required to overcome their shyness and social anxiety.”

Bought this book because it was hard to find a sitter so I can see a counselor once a week. I worked through the entire book and gained much needed self confidence. The book helped pin point the reason for being shy and become bold enough to get out more and make some great friends. Would recommend to anyone struggling with social anxiety or shyness

I hope this review gets someone to buy this book. I am 45 and developed pretty intense social anxiety late in life. I had no idea what was going on, though. I was beginning to think I was just a nut and I was pretty hopeless.
I had, over the years, searched on the Internet and never stumbled on "social anxiety" before. When I did, it was as if I was reading a transcript of what was going on in my head every day. All my quirks, fears, hang ups etc. were textbook examples of what defines SAD. I immediately bought about 7 books on the topic. This book so far has changed my entire outlook the most, almost instantly. I hope I am not jumping the gun, but I feel like a huge weight has been lifted, realizing that virtually every oddball symptom I have exhibited is actually quite common. Not wanting to eat in front of others, poor eye contact, assuming others are focused on my every move and mistake. All of these symptoms are very common for the disorder and quite manageable once you start dissecting what is going on in your mind. Cannot be happier I made this purchase.

By Warren on March 20, 2013
Format: Paperback
This book has helped me get rid of the emotional discomfort that comes from interaction with people. Im sure that I might still act silly or aloof but it does not bother me or is it associated with a bad emotional feeling or me getting down on myself. I used to always feel uncomfortable with eye contact and my eyes would kind of do the watering thing. No more, it only took the first couple chapters and all the discomfort was gone. I finally feel normal after many years of being emotionally detached from society, I still sometimes dont communicate well or avoid some people, but it is not longer a big deal like it used to be, its just part of life. Ive read the "overcoming" book thats available on amazon, this book is far more effective, at least for me. The authors here are clear and ask very effective questions for the reader to process. So this book is proven to work, and without much effort I might add. Highly recommended

I've been going over this workbook with my young adult daughter. It's been slow going; however, she is receptive in giving it a try. So far the first chapter is easy to follow. As I have glanced through the rest of the workbook, it looks like it's easy to follow and perfect for my daughter's issues.

I am a therapist and use this book with some of my clients. It is helpful in step by step commitment to change, practice, and exposure to anxiety producing social situations and uses CBT interventions. My only complaint is the intense sales-pitch for CBT therapy and dismissing other therapeutic techniques is a little off-putting for those of us who use CBT plus dynamic and other interventions. People's issues can be complex and have many causes and current life situations and personality factors which contribute to them, so CBT only is not always the 100% solution.
