Rich's review of The Shyness Cure by Christopher S.

Reviewed by -- Rich M.        

Book Review of -- The Shyness Cure: How to Overcome Shyness, Social Anxiety and Boost your Confidence Step by Step by Christopher S.        

My overall star rating --- 2 
About the book:
In The Shyness Cure, you will learn specific step by step strategies that will help you to confront and interact with others with ease and freedom. Many people though suffering from simple shyness or even social anxiety disorder, are stuck in their condition because they don't understand what is causing it and what triggers their emotional and physical reactions.

The review --
First of all, a book on a "cure" for shyness probably doesn't enchant potential readers when it's written by someone using a pseudonym. "Christopher S." Really? His Facebook name is "Christopher KDP", so he is either really shy himself, meaning his book doesn't work, or he thinks this is as touchy a subject as erectile dysfunction. The book is all basic common sense. True, most folks don't have that, but there's not a lot of information here.        There's supposedly some sort of "shyness algorithm" that the author goes over. Would be interested to see it, but it wasn't in the free copy I downloaded from Amazon. And it's not nearly interesting enough to bother going back to see if there's an update. This book is your typical "get rich"-type of e-book: No real substance, common problem, net-scoured information, and a lot of self-promotion on Facebook. If you're reading the book and find you have to "practice" social situations, as the book suggests, I would suggest a career manning a lighthouse or a morgue or some other career not involving social activity. You don't practice that - you get in and do it. Sheesh.
