In my quest of overcoming my shyness I have read a lot of so called self help books. Many of so labeled books are often pure money grab by the author or the publisher but in the sea of options I have stumbled upon few gems. The Definitive Book of Body Language by Allan and Barbara Pease, is one of few books that actively helped me overcoming my shyness.
The Definitive Book of Body Language has been considered THE book to read and study about body language ever since it was first released.
This book is pure joy to read but just reading it is not enough by it self (it never is). I put what I learned to practice and if you want to make the change in your life you will have to too.
To make a long story short being aware of my and other peoples body language has increased my confidence and furthermore changed my personality for the better.
But how can one book change your personality? The Definitive Book of Body Language taught me that by using open body language I would be more positive personality. Ever since I put these things in practice I have become more positive in every situation, less shy and more popular. I highly recommend you study body language and put what you learn to use. The Definitive Book of Body Language is the best place to start your dive into overcoming your shyness through improved body language.
Have a great day!
