In "Shyness", Bernardo J. Carducci, Ph.D., draws on more than twenty years of research to penetrate the many myths and mysteries surrounding shyness. Through compelling case studies, a comprehensive presentation of the latest discoveries, and numerous self-help strategies and self-assessment quizzes, Dr. Carducci helps to enlighten and encourage shy people who feel isolated and misunderstood. In "Shyness", Carducci explains the basic principles of shyness; discuses the psychical, mental, and emotional expressions of shyness; and explores the biological, psychological, and societal roots of this trait. In addition, Dr. Carducci traces the manifestations of shyness at different life stages. In an age of instantaneous, on-line electronic interpersonal relationships, he outlines the specific challenges facing shy individuals in contemporary society.

"Shyness" is not about transforming shy people into extroverts. Its principal mission is to promote what Dr. Carducci calls "the successfully shy life"-- one of self-awareness, self-acceptance, and self-confidence. He provides such easy-to-implement strategies as:
managing your shyness when meeting new people
managing your shyness at work
making small talk
initiating romantic relationships
parenting shy children
