Abstract:

"Improve your people skills. You think your social life could be better. Maybe you've felt shy as long as you can remember. Your conversations have more awkward moments than you'd like. You don't need a ton of friends, but you'd like to have some people to hang out with on occasion. You want to make changes, but you don't know where to start. Lots of people have been in your shoes. You're hardly a lost cause, and it's never too late to turn things around. You don't have to give up your personality, interests, or values either."--Cover.
