I am a 22-year-old college student and I checked out this book because I read the last two reviews about it and they were positive ones. I am so happy I actually didn't purchase this item. As a shy person, this book discourages you and makes you feel "less" of a person because of your shyness. The author will tell you that shyness can be changed, but Phillips writes it in such a way that you feel guilty for being shy. I don't think of my shyness as something that I need to immediately change (aka a crutch; I am a functioning human being. Shyness isn't a "disease" as he calls it), but something that I need to understand as to change. I also was frustrated with how he described shyness in a person. There are many different levels of shyness, but he seemed to approach shy people as if he was a scientist (very cold and impersonal). I felt that his observations were close-minded. One shouldn't change shyness by practicing social skills or how to be more extroverted, because that is not "fixing" shyness, that is only pretending and acquiring skills which help you (you might still be shy though)in social situations (basically he is helping you acquire a textbook philosophy to shyness). This isn't what I'm looking for, but if you are, see for yourself.

I found a copy of this book in a used book store years ago. When I finally got around to reading it, I was amazed at how useful it was. I loaned it to a friend, and bought another copy. I can't do it justice with a review. Practical advice, not feel-good spiritualism or weird pseudoscience. If you're shy, or just want to be more comfortable in social situations, you owe it to yourself to buy this book now.

I read an article in the Penn State newspaper about this course in the early 80's. I immediately went to see Prof. Phillips and he said i did not need medication to rid me of my shyness but to take his course and learn social skills. I did that and took the course and it changed my life giving me more confidence with my social skills. Highly recommended book!

I read this book in my senior year of High School, and can easily say it changed my life for the better. I'm now in my 40's and have been married for 15 years. This is a direct result of the strategies I learned in this book. It gives clear, detailed steps to develop critical social skills to help you overcome shyness. Another reviewer gave the book 1 star because it didn't rid you of your shyness, but instead taught you specific skills to overcome it. The reviewer is correct in claiming the book doesn't magically banish your shyness to a far corner of the universe. I personally don't think that is possible. You have to work at it. But with the practice steps outlined in this book, you can actually do this and succeed. I have multiple graduate degrees and this is probably the most useful book I've ever read.
