Russell Norris is a writer. After battling social anxiety disorder for years, he became an executive at a leading advertising agency in London. He now runs his own copywriting business. He lives in south London with his family. This is his first non-fiction book.
'Deeply moving and informative - I raced through it. Norris's portrayal of the cyclical struggle of social anxiety disorder is stunning.
This book is the perfect response to anyone who's ever said 'Don't we all get anxious about socialising?''
- Lily Bailey, author of Because We Are Bad
'An honest, brave and much needed account of what it feels like to live with severe social anxiety. Having a male writer dealing so openly with topics like social anxiety, shyness, introversion and sensitivity is sadly all too rare and makes this book all the more of a triumph.'
- Tom Falkenstein, Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist & author of The Highly Sensitive Man
