    Review quote
    Dr. Rapee educates, coaches, and guides those who struggle with shyness or social anxiety toward the achievement of a more comfortable ifestyle. His writing is clear and accessible, and his integrative lessons are based on the latest outcome research. Mental health professionals will find the program an indispensable resource for facilitating behavior change in their clients. -- Andrew R. Eisen Offering useful tools for confronting the fears that inhibit millions of people experiencing problems related to shyness or social anxiety, this is a practical, concise self-help guide. The reader will learn ways to think and act differently and will be able to challenge and defeat the negative and unrealistic assumptions that limit personal growth. -- Robert L. Leahy Given that social phobia is the third most common mental disorder (after depression and alcoholism), Dr. Rapee's book is a must for every clinician's library. Mental health professionals can recommend it with confidence, since all of the strategies are firmly grounded in two decades of empirical research. The case examples make the strategies come alive. Readers can work systematically through the nine lessons to conquer social fears on their own or they can use the book in conjunction with ongoing therapy for social phobia. Congratulations to Dr. Rapee on an excellent, timely contribution! -- Debra A. Hope
