My Copy: 9780735217003 (image from twitter.com) I'm sure the title gave away that this was a self-help book, and it doesn't disappoint. No worries, it doesn't curse you out throughout, but does call it the way Jon Taffer does on Bar Rescue...minus the physically in your face element.

(Image from theconversation.com) I am one of those people. I am a true crime book reader, and a fan of movies, miniseries, documentaries, and t.v. shows about true crime.

However, if you like reading paper instead of screen like me, then it's probably worth getting for yourself. … Continue reading The Social Skills Guidebook: Manage Shyness, Improve Your Conversations & Make Friends, Without Giving Up Who You Are, by Chris MacLeod
