In this best-selling book, Dr. Zimbardo analyzes shyness with a personal understanding of the emotions involved. He then presents advice, exercises, and encouragement to help shy people strengthen their social skills and their self-confidence. If you're troubled by shyness, or love someone who is, reading Shyness can open new worlds.
