    What sort of self help books? Self esteem? Being more social? Making more money? Improving your memory?

    My personal favourite is the classic "How to Win Friends and Influence People".

    Thrive by rob Kelly is very good. You can either get it as a work book or the kindle version as long as you have a little notebook you can use

    Haha, yea I was like that as well a few years ago. I guess from experience, you have to do things by yourself to actually be more social.

    Read "How to Win Friends and Influence People". Then just put yourself out there and learn from experience. Reading is one thing, but I have to say, implementing it for a year of university is quite difficult. I've read quite a few self help books, and pretty much forgotten most of the stuff, and it's been 1year8months into my university experience.

    The only other book I'd recommend would be "The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pick Up Artists" by Neil Strauss.
    It's utter bulls***, but it's interesting and gives you quite an interesting insight into how some men perceive women.

    I looked at a book called 'Confidence' by Rob Yeung, which teaches on how to become more confident and get what you want or get where you want to be in this world.
    It covers confidence in all forms of life too, so it doesn't just focus on confidence in the workplace, but also how to be a confident person in social situations and how to have faith in yourself and be happier because of it. I found it useful as the first thing it determines is how much you ideally need to read by asking yourself ten questions (from flicking through a couple of chapters, to reading about certain spheres of confidence to reading the entire book). Its on Amazon if you want to look at it xD.
