It's interesting and has good information. There's just one section I question, because the author claims shyness is social anxiety. It isn't necessarily, although shyness can lead to SA. The author also says schizoid people fear close relationships. I was always taught people with avoidant personality disorder fear relationships, whereas schizoid people have no desire for them.
