    I deal with social anxiety. I think that I am able to control it around others pretty well, on the outside it seems that way at least. On the inside I am shrinking and constantly thinking about what I could have done better or what I think others are thinking about me (almost always negative). This book has been able to help me with some of these problems that I internalize. This book is all about drug free responses to dealing with anxiety. It details different strategies in which to help with I deal with social anxiety. I think that I am able to control it around others pretty well, on the outside it seems that way at least.

It details different strategies in which to help with different situations. I like how this book not only gives ideas on ways to deal with your internalizing anxiety but also gives different meditation and breathing exercises as well natural and dietary remedies. Do you only have 5 minutes a day to deal with anxiety? 10 minutes? 30 minutes? This book gives you different ways to help with any of these time frames. The back of the book holds several journaling pages to help with your healing as well as for note taking. I was given this book for free in exchange for my honest reveiw. All opinions are my own.

    I really enjoyed this book, because this book covers a lot of methods that my therapist has me do or has taught me. It would be great to have an at-home reference. (I have Bipolar Type I, PTSD, along with just being an anxious mess most of the time yay).

    *Listened to on audiobook* "Even if something bad happens, you'll still be stronger for having experienced it and lived through it" This is not going to be a very long review simply because this was a really short, straight, to the point audiobook. I decided to pick this book up after finishing my reread of "How to Quiet Your Inner Critic" by Ellen Hendricksen. This book showed up in my recommended list on scribd and it appeared to have good enough reviews on goodreads, plus it was only 5 hours *Listened to on audiobook* "Even if something bad happens, you'll still be stronger for having experienced it and lived through it" This is not going to be a very long review simply because this was a really short, straight, to the point audiobook. I decided to pick this book up after finishing my reread of "How to Quiet Your Inner Critic" by Ellen Hendricksen. This book showed up in my recommended list on scribd and it appeared to have good enough reviews on goodreads, plus it was only 5 hours long (2.5 if you listened to it on 2x speed, which I did) so I decided to give it a go. Honestly, I would describe this book as generic at best. It was a very impersonal book filled with a lot of advice that was never truly elaborated on. For starters, there were multiple parts of this book that felt like I was reading a textbook. I obviously understand the need for there to be theories and explanations to things before we dive into them, and I'm also aware that while I do know what the DSM-V is and what it defines as anxiety, a lot of people might not. None the less, I feel like the author could've chosen another way to transmit this knowledge that didn't feel like she was quoting word for word from the DSM-V, or from research studies, or web pages, etc. I kid you not within the first 10 minutes the narrator was listing off all of the different signs and symptoms of anxiety word for word from the DSM-V, even including things like "A. etc etc, criteria B. etc etc". It felt boring and dull and was a common theme throughout the rest of the book. Possibly the biggest thing that annoyed me about this book was just how vague and non commital it was. This book is marketed as having "Daily strategies for overcoming anxiety" but it really doesn't. The author exposes numerous different scenarios that may cause anxiety, mentions how if you do A, B or C then you're letting your anxiety control you, then either gives a very generic tip (be mindful, exercise, expose yourself) or goes off on a tangent and starts talking about something else, never going back to those first scenarios mentioned at the beginning of most chapters. It would annoy me when i'd relate to the scenarios being told and would think to myself "huh, I do avoid going to parties for fear of having no one to talk to" and would get excited about seeing what techniques the author would give to combat this, but then the author would start talking about something else, and never truly go back to this specific situation and tell me how I could manage and overcome my anxiety. It was just so much more vague than Hendricksen's book, where you actually get tips directly related to multiple situations that could trigger one's SA. Also, although this book is marketed as being for social anxiety, it really reads more like a general anxiety book. There are very few chapters solely dedicated to problems that someone with SA would face, and we actually get a lot of parts of the book where the author talks about other types of phobias, like being scared of going to the dentist for reason completely unrelated to socializing with the doctor. The author also states at the beginning of the book that you should feel free to skim any chapters you didn't find helpful, so I did skim the chapters on medidation and exercise, due to the fact that I've tried meditation before and have not found it helpful, and I already have a healthy exercise routine. Now the reason why this book isn't rated a lot lower than three stars is mainly because unlike other self help books i've read, this book at least does encourage the reader to seek out proffesional help and see a therapist or get medication to treat their anxiety. I was really grateful that the author didn't stigmatize seeking out help from a professional and instead promoted it and offered it as a healthy option to explore in multiple chapters. I also did like some small areas of the book, such as the quote mentioned at the beginning of this review, the idea of celebrating the steps one takes to achieve your goal, not just celebrating it when you achieve it (so, for example, celebrating the fact that you had the courage to say hi to a stranger even if you're ultimate goal is to start a conversation with a stranger) and always remembering to practice gratitude. Overall, this book didn't really do anything for me. It didn't give me more tools that I could use to better my social anxiety and also wasn't really insightful, but it wasn't harmful either and it did make me more self aware of certain things. That being said, if you're struggling with social anxiety I would 100% recommend reading Ellen Hendricksens book (not sponsored I swear lol) instead, as it gives much more concrete, in depth advice.

    Lame. Includes tons of information that’s SO basic and obvious, and things that the vast majority of ppl would know instinctively, that it should embarrass the author. It makes me question her credentials — or the general value of an education in this field. This book was mostly waste of time. Don’t bother.

    Although it is a slower read compared to a thriller or mystery book, this book is great! As someone that has severe social anxiety, I think Hattie really nailed all of her points and provided some great tools for those of us that do have social anxiety. I love that during each of the chapters it gives you exercises you can do based on how much time you have. The little quizzes in the book help you define where you may be at with your social anxiety.

Something I truly loved about this book was that she did not use super complicated medical terminology. It is nice to be able to read a book and completely understand it. People don't typically buy books like this unless they really want to know more about the subject or are looking for some guidance.

    The first thing I learned while reading this book is that I won't be diagnosed with social anxiety because I've already been diagnosed with panic disorder and general anxiety. Supposedly, social anxiety is just one of the many pieces of those diagnoses. However, the various coping mechanisms and suggestions in this book were useful to me anyway. The thought of forcing myself to do more of the social things that bother me is both scary but also interesting, and I'd like to do so with baby steps i The first thing I learned while reading this book is that I won't be diagnosed with social anxiety because I've already been diagnosed with panic disorder and general anxiety.

    Some of the examples of situations were painfully accurate to me. It is a kind of attempt to give you CBT strategies in book form. For each exercise it gives you different options depending on if you have one hour, half an hour, or only five minutes. It also does multiple choice questions, but the right answer is always the last one. It was okay, I think part of the issue might be that it would be better in book form, than an audiobook, which I had borrowed from my library. 3 stars

    This has given me tools to dealing with my SAD. I've always been introverted and have had difficulty making good friends. This book helped me have a better understanding of these feelings and ways to overcome my social anxiety. There are many short exercises that anyone can practice. Some I've already been practicing but others were new to me. This has given me tools to dealing with my SAD. I've always been introverted and have had difficulty making good friends.

    Great strategies that can be used any time. Also great exercises for 5, 10 or 30 minutes to assist with anxiety issues that relate to stress, food, etc. I look forward to implementing these into my life and see how I can overcome social anxiety. This book makes so much sense and I realized a lot of what is discussed I have gone through (or still going through) so I'm glad I read this book. Great strategies that can be used any time.

    I'm not one for nonfiction books, and I have never read a self-help book before, but this book is able to give the reader the knowledge about how to treat a mental illness whether they are socially anxious themselves, or have friends who may need some more assistance with dealing these issues.

    Highly recommend. Each chapter offers a different method for thriving with social anxiety, including 5-minute, 10-minute, and 30-minute exercises. You'll want to buy a copy so you can refer back to these exercises long after finishing the book. Highly recommend.

    I stopped reading this in the first chapter because it seemed to equate self-loathing with social anxiety.

    It's already helping! I've been struggling with ANXIETY most of my life. I'm on medication which helps me function but doesn't take the ANXIETY away. I've learned that I probably will never not have an abnormally anxious life but all of the suggestions in this book have already helped me to accept that but there are things I can do to keep from letting it control my life. Just knowing how to turn my thinking pattern from negativity to positive has helped tremendously. I have a long way to go but It's already helping! I've been struggling with ANXIETY most of my life.
