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.

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.

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

Sad but true

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.

Useful resource, not just for dating, for dealing with social anxiety issues

While the book is couched in the form of a self-help book for dating–and indeed, much of the book is directed towards dating–I’d like to describe it as a good commonsense guideline for breaking out of the shell that many people who suffer from social anxiety issues are trapped in (and trap themselves in). Let’s face it: dating is just another form of social interaction, and the audience for the book are people who can’t venture into dating so easily because they have social issues in general. The book describes the issues in an honest and forthright manner and prescribes the potential solutions that are, while not exactly revolutionary, but practical and manageable. I will say “potential” solutions because, as the author points out, they are not magical and will take time to work, and there is no guarantee that everything will be turned upside down quickly. You might even realize that, in some form, you might actually have heard several of the suggestions included in the book in the past, albeit in a different form. What does make the book different is that it does so in a comprehensive, encouraging, and empathetic manner that brings you to that “aha!” moment, not in an incomplete, irresponsible, and even condescending fashion that you might have encountered them in the past.

Very precise

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.

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.

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.

Good read.
