Some people are just plain shy but, amazingly, some of the seemingly most confident and successful people find certain areas of their life difficult to negotiate. This may be at work; it may be about finding the right partner; it may be about speaking in front of 100 people. The aim of the book is to provide the tools to improve your overall confidence and self-esteem. The book elaborates on the techniques shown on the primetime BBC 2 series, Confidence Lab, in which 12 people are taken to a country house hotel and 're-educated' over a week. The results were even better than expected, with all 'Labees' reporting significant improvements to their lives.
