Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Cringeworthy, written and read by Melissa Dahl. 

Have you ever said good-bye to someone, only to discover that you're both walking in the same direction? Or had your next thought fly out of your brain in the middle of a presentation? Or accidentally liked an old photo on someone's Instagram or Facebook, thus revealing yourself to be a creepy social media stalker?

Melissa Dahl, New York magazine's Science of Us editor, has experienced all of those awkward situations and many more. Now she offers a thoughtful, original take on what it really means to feel awkward. She invites you to follow her into all sorts of mortifying moments, drawing on personal experience and in-depth psychological research to answer questions you've probably pondered at some point, such as:

  • Why are situations without clear rules most likely to turn awkward?
  • Are people really judging us as harshly as we think they are?
  • Does anyone ever truly outgrow their awkward teenage self?

If you can learn to tolerate life's most awkward situations - networking, difficult conversations, hearing the sound of your own terrible voice - your awkwardness can be a secret weapon to making better, more memorable impressions. When everyone else is pretending to have it under control, you can be a little braver and grow a little bigger.
