I really enjoyed this book. The writing is simple, yet packs a punch. It is geared more toward adolescents; however, a large portion of the book is written after she graduates from college and moves into the working world. The only problem with it is that the author sort of implies that anyone can learn to manage his or her anxiety through CBT, medication, and hard work. After reading it, I put myself down, telling myself that if I had a stronger will, I would be able to push through my social anxiety.
I think that philosophy may work for some people, but it's definitely not always the case. Books like that just always need to come to a happy ending. Don't get me wrong, I was genuinely happy that the author found ways of coping. It's just that I haven't, and I'm bitter. Oh well.
