A great book on how mindfulness relates to shyness. It provides a good foundation for understanding how people who are shy treat themselves with endless harsh criticism and judgement. It also provides a good selection of meditation practices to get you started on the path.

This is one of those books that has to sit for a while. It's more of a self-help book with exercises to help someone with their shyness. The author talks about his own and others' experiences of shyness, although you could probably apply the philosophy and exercises to many other things.

very good book, introduced me to mindfulness, redirecting yourself into the moment, letting unpleasant thoughts pass, instead of fighting them and saying no or vocalizing to block. Stephen mostly avoids the clichéd Stuart Smally-isms to explain his ideas, but gets a little repetitive. Some more stories and examples would have helped. but overall, reading the book did me alot of good
