The Science of Quiet People: The Shy Guide to the Biology of Being Bashful

Shy? Introverted? Social anxiety? What does it all mean and what's the difference among these? This book introduces readers to all the ways that a person can be "shy", "introverted", and "anxious". It explores the biological reasons for quieter and less-social personalities. When readers better understand themselves, they can better accept themselves and take charge of who they are and who they want to be.

Booklist - Sharon Rawlins

"...Describes the biology of shyness and offers suggestions for easing or overcoming social fears. It makes the distinction between someone who's shy or unsocial versus someone who has a chronic social anxiety disorder (SAD), and then explains why some people react in certain ways in uncomfortable social situations and details how the body's systems respond to that fear. . . .Despite the text's short length, there's enough information to reassure shy tweens or middleschoolers that they are OK just the way they are. But if they're interested in becoming a little more social, this book offers tools and steps to help them successfully accomplish that goal." - Booklist
