Great book for shy men

Many books that attempt help to improve male social skills with women do not take shy people into account. This is unfortunate as someone who is painfully shy will have a hard time implementing the strategies of those books. This author takes a different approach that I think is refreshing. While I am not “painfully shy” anymore I read the book to get some general tips on how to more social.

You could find better material elsewhere

I’m not unhappy with the book. But it clearly is a compilation of watered down pick up artists material and self help material.

A much needed resource on the subject

I just finished reading “From Shy to Social” and have not yet had time to try putting it all into practice, but I will nonetheless give it five stars, being the best resource I have come across thus far. The author clearly understands the challenges which shy (heterosexual) men face. Despite much progressive politics on gender equality over the past four or five decades, when it comes to dating not much has changed: men approach women, are expected to be bold and take risks, and carry it all off with a James Bond-like confidence and composure. The shy man lacks this confidence and it typically ruins his chances of ever forming romantic relationships.

Real hope for shy men to get dating for real.

This book is great. Not only is it very well written, I think it is one of the few books of it’s kind in existence. Men are commonly left to initiate contact with women and make the first move in dating and relationships, but when you are shy this is far from easy. There are many books out there that give dating advice and tips on how to pick up women, but they are really not very useful to somebody who is extremely shy and nervous. There are many younger guys and older adult men who are so shy they find asking a woman out on a date isn’t just difficult, it’s so uncomfortable it can cause anxiety, not only ruining their chances to date the woman they are asking out, but also making them feel worse about themselves than they did before. The more bad experiences shy men have when trying to ask women out, the more discouraged they get, and this often makes them even more shy. This book targets shyness as one of the biggest obstacles preventing men from meeting and dating women. Rather than just telling the reader how they should act and dress and suggesting they go right out and try to ask women out, Chris starts first by attacking the problem of shyness directly with a well thought out step by step plan. The reader is told to start small and by following his guide, the reader hones simple skills that can’t help but build confidence, calm nerves and erode shyness. Advice on how to act and what to say are useless if they don’t attack the main problem of shyness. Each step the reader takes builds on the last until finally, he is no longer the same shy person he was when he first picked up the book.

Very precise

This book is really well written and the author seems a down to earth person

Sad but true

 on January 20, 2016

Shy men are ignored and scoffed at in society. Sad but true. So it is up to the shy men to either change or be left behind. Improvement comes from within. I believe that every man should strive to improve in all facets of life, not just with interactions with women. However, this book focused on social interaction with women and offered good advice for building social skills.

Very enjoyable book to read. If you read the …

Very enjoyable book to read. If you read the book before doing the exercises it can seem a bit fast paced. One example of this is building a knowledge base and getting more social (obviously). All in all my time was well spent reading this book.

A great book for some, good for others

As a shy guy myself, I am so happy that a book like this is around to help guys like me prepare for meeting and attracting women. I appreciate how sympathetic and understanding Christopher Gray is about shyness compared to a lot of other books on this sensitive topic. He does offer some great advice. However, as I was reading through this book, I couldn’t help but think that a more accurate title would have been “From Shy to Social: The Upwardly Mobile, Urban Professional Shy Man’s Guide to Personal and Dating Success”. The book gives the clear impression that one must have a high-paying job, live in a (fairly) big city with enough money to be able to go to bars and night clubs and be able to afford a wide range of opportunities where shy guys would be able to come into contact with lots of women. While this may be true, the book seems to gloss over the fact that there are many men (shy and non-shy) have been significantly impacted by the post-2008 economic crunch in a negative way and as a result simply may not have the financial resources to be able to do some of the things he recommends, even though they want to. If you don’t live in a big city and can’t afford to live on your own; if you can’t really afford bars or night clubs; and if you’re just hanging on for dear life in this difficult economy, I don’t feel this book is quite as helpful. I realize that he’s trying to cover a wide amount of territory, but the book would be even more effective if he provided more acknowledgment of these realities . All that said, this is still an important book, one that should be on every shy man’s bookshelf.

Awesome book

An awesome read, and the first book that seems to truly understand shyness. Many of the steps/assignments outlined are not easy, but I also don’t feel that it’s possible to turn a significant part of your persona around in just a day or two. I still haven’t quite completed all of them, but this is probably the first book that has made me confident that the author understands where I’m coming from and that really changing this part of your life is possible.

Painfully,yet therapeutically, honest.

This book not only offers sound and timely advice, it also manages to explain and document the authors OWN experiences. This book is a must read for anyone looking to, thematically, improve on their social life, moved to a new city, or whatever unique situation that fits you.
