"'Just be yourself!' You've likely heard this advice and thought 'But how?' Ellen Hendriksen's How to Be Yourself is for the millions of Americans who consider themselves quiet, shy, introverted, or socially anxious. Through clear, engaging storytelling, she takes readers on an inspiring journey: from how social anxiety gets wired into our brains to how you can learn to live a life without fear. This book is also a groundbreaking roadmap to finally being your true, authentic self." --Susan Cain, New York Times, USA Today and nationally bestselling author of Quiet
"Ever been frozen at a cocktail party? Panicked before a work presentation? I've spent a lot of time speaking to large crowds and walking into rooms full of strangers, and it's not always easy. How to Be Yourself will let you rest easy knowing that your anxiety is completely normal. As a clinical psychologist, Ellen has spent years helping patients conquer insecurities. With her help, you can go from asking yourself, 'Why can't I do this?' to knowing 'I can do it.'" --Mignon Fogarty, New York Times bestselling author of Grammar Girl's Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing
"HOW TO BE YOURSELF is terrific. It puts the tools of cognitive behavioral therapy for social anxiety firmly in the hands of those who can benefit the most from them and does so in a manner that is at once extremely engaging and highly therapeutic. Ellen Hendriksen makes it clear what needs to be done to manage social anxiety rather than to be controlled by it and lays it out in the most down-to-earth and from-the-heart fashion. The millions of people who struggle with social anxiety will be all the better for reading this book." --Richard G. Heimberg, Ph.D., Director of the AdultAnxiety Clinic of Temple at Temple University
"Ellen Hendriksen is the real deal. This book cuts through the noise to help you overcome those big, dark anxieties and doubts that hold you back so you can live your best life." --Lewis Howes, New York Times bestselling author of The School of Greatness
"In a friendly and accessible voice, Dr. Hendriksen teases apart introversion and social anxiety, explains the differences, and provides concrete suggestions that will help introverts who suffer from social anxiety find their way past the fear to a happy and fulfilled introverted life." --Sophia Dembling, author of The Introvert's Way and Introverts in Love

Dr. Hendriksen takes a gentle but authoritative approach to a serious subject. Neither preachy nor navel-gazing, and never condescending, the
engrossing narratives about actual clients and about herself make the book relatable and honest. Full of witty language and cultural references, I found myself laughing out loud many times. Highly recommended!
Don’t let the cover fool you. This book is definitely for him, as well as her and them.
I RECCOMEND THIS BOOK TO EVERYONE!!!
Each chapter contains a compelling and useful tool on how to combat social anxiety, and what's more, together they paint a thorough picture of the, or at least my, social anxiety experience. Very few authors really capture the nuanced thoughts that occur during social anxiety, but this author is quite special in that she has personally had social anxiety and she knows how to describe the experience vividly.
I would highly recommend this book as the go-to guide for anyone looking to improve their social anxiety.
