"Kate" I will need more of your expert recommendations on

Resolved Question:

"Kate" I will need more of your expert recommendations on several books in the following categories. If I could please have three of your top book recommendations in each of the categories. "happiness" an all in one guide that will help me to find happiness and to be happy in workplace and in life. Books on "anger management" so I will not act out on anger and keep my cool under pressure. Books that will help on being a "sensitive person". I feel I am too sensitive and also take things the wrong way, so books that will help me to become a stronger person and not be so overly sensitive. Your book recommendations on "positive thinking" and "emotional healing". These two areas I will also need your top book choices. Book recommendations on "shyness and social anxiety". I am a shy person, books that will help give me the courage to get out more to meet people and not be afraid of trying new things. All I seem to do is go to work nights and stay inside most of the time during the day. I do not have a social life, so I will need help on overcoming shyness and getting a social life. Books on "dealing with conflict and confrontation". Is the gentle art of verbal self defense at work by Suzette Elgin be a book you would recommend in this category? The last category is "people skills" being nice in the work place. This is a lot of categories as I have searched many books but need your expert book recommendations as I feel I will be missing out on many great books without your top recommendations in all of these categories. I would like to order books from all of these categories so I will have a nice mix. Thank you for all of your help in these categories.
