Overview

Say hello to new friends, new business opportunities, new love, and new confidence

Okay, so you're shy. Here are 85 proven techniques to help you conquer your shyness and change your life for good. No psychobabble. No nonsense. These tested "ShyBusters" prepare you for that upcoming party, work function, interview, date, and the rest of your life.

As someone who overcame debilitating shyness herself, professional speaker Leil Lowndes used this method to become a confident woman who has been interviewed on hundreds of TV and radio shows and has spoken to crowds of 10,000. You'll soon be making "fearless conversation" with people who used to intimidate you. You'll learn how to win the love you deserve and ask for whatever you want. You will overcome embarrassing stammering, sweating, clamming up, and wishing you were invisible.

Good-Bye to Shy will show you how to:

  • Make a stronger impression at work, at parties, in any situation
  • Feel more relaxed around people, make eye contact, and spark conversations
  • Boost your career, jump-start your social life, and open your heart to new possibilities

Say Good-Bye to Shy--and hello to the happy, loving, confident person who's been hiding inside you.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Many of Lowndes's potential readers may "shy" away from her relentlessly perky, exclamatory tone and use of terms like Shys (for shy folks) and Sures (for extroverts). Which is too bad, because much of her advice is sensible and based on desensitization techniques, or graduated exposure, therapists use in treating shyness and social phobia. The book is a mixture of confessional by a formerly shy author (How to Make Anyone Fall in Love with You) and no-nonsense guide. Lowndes cites scientific findings, such as that shy people feel continually judged by others at public events, which they remember as more negative than they were. Lowndes advises writing down one's immediate impressions after a social event. "If you later remember anything negative..., go back and check your notes. If that embarrassing or disappointing moment isn't in your notes, forget it. It didn't happen." She also offers useful advice, such as how to tolerate holding eye contact with strangers. Chapter titles like "How to Handle a Past Bummer" seem meant to appeal to younger readers, but the tone clashes with Lowndes's sometimes dated personal stories. Her great eureka-"I'm not shy anymore" moment takes place in the Playboy Club, where she dons bunny ears. (Aug.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    I love how the author relates to shys, being an ex shy herself.

    I love how the author relates to shys, being an ex shy herself. Her writing can make a shy feel at ease that everything will be OK, I felt as if the advice that was being given was by a mom :-). Leil is awesome and I'm looking forward to reading some of her other books.

    hey, I bought this book becuz I want to change
    and this really helps a lot.

    The book is interesting and the shybusters will actually work if u did the steps!

    I was an extremely shy girl. I cannot even look into an opposite sex's eyes 2 years b4. And I am afraid of talking to an extremely extrovert, a confident.
    Although I didnt successfully turning to a confident girl, here's some of my suggestion(;

    Ur shy because ur lack of confident. The way to improve is to try your best on everything.

    DONNOT be afraid of ppl u dont know. Speak first= win first:P

    Finally, go to church or wherever place u could actually talking to ppl. IT'S VERY IMPORTANT!
