Where does Social Anxiety rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of my favourites and definitely my favourite for the self-help type

What other book might you compare Social Anxiety to, and why?

Umm not sure because unlike other books, this one actually worked and was actually helpful!

Which scene did you most enjoy?

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Any additional comments?

Suffered from shyness and social anxiety for much of my teenage and adult life and i have tried everything from hypnosis to numerous books. This one was different. It had actual advice I could follow. Am i totally cured? No of course not, it is not that simple but i am a LOT better and feel i get better every single day. Narration was good but at times her voice could be a tad irritating.

Overall an excellent and very helpful book.

Penguin presents Roald Dahl's The BFG, read by actor, writer, and Britain's Got Talent judge David Walliams. This audiobook features original music and sound design by Pinewood film studios. The BFG is a nice and jumbly giant. In fact, he is the only big friendly giant in Giant Country.

Sex and emotions: a dangerous combination. Despite the weakness in her legs and the fear of what was yet to come, she rose to meet her Master. She knew better than to hesitate when given orders. Instinctively she dropped her chin, stealing her gaze away from his eyes and letting them rest closer to his waist. "None of that," he said, taking her hands firmly and placing them at her sides. Then he reached down and undid the button of her jeans. He unzipped them. Alex breathed in sharply, feeling herself getting instantly excited by the brush of his hand on her stomach.

Really useful nook, full of very good practical advice. I have been dealing with general social anxiety, shyness etc for most of my life. This is not an overnight cure but i can sincerely say I am handling difficult situations so much easier. I can now see why so many people have recommended this book to me.

Perfect length. Not too long, not too short. The perfect length to get the message across. Narrator i would say was 4 / 5.

Great book, i feel so much better and will continue to use the advice in this book everyday!

This book is very strictly over 18 due to the very graphic content. Erotica author and publisher Charlie Buxton brings you volume four of Transexual Erotica. The authors were hand-picked for their experience and ability to write proper erotica, to go beyond the content you will find on the Internet. Featuring several stories, nearly five hours long, this is not the usual one quick short story.

Very enjoyable listen. A good storyline, with plenty of twists and turns and some very hot under the collar sex scenes. If a good storyline of a submissive nature is ur thing then this is the book for u. Enjoyable narrator with this one, I liked her voice.
