I'm Dr. Daniel Wendler (but I go by Dan!)
These days, I'm a clinical psychologist who specializes in helping people overcome loneliness and social disconnection.
But growing up...
Well, I was the most socially awkward kid you could ever hope to meet. I spent my childhood bullied, rejected, and lonely.
Eventually, I was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome and discovered that my social struggles were the result of Asperger's preventing me from learning social skills naturally.
So I decided to learn social skills deliberately, like a foreign language. I devoured stacks of books. I practiced extensively. And slowly but surely, I discovered how to live a life full of connection and friendship.
I want everyone to have that same opportunity. That's why I wrote Improve Your Social Skills. Social skills can be learned - and I'm here to help.
A few of my credentials:
Improve Your Social Skills explains the exact social skills principles that I used to achieve my own social success.
There's no fluff, no untested theories -- just concrete, practical advice that has worked for me and millions of readers.
