©2011. By Michelle Garcia Winner and Pamela Crooke. Socially Curious and Curiously Social: A Social Thinking Guidebook for Bright Teens & Young Adults
The anime-illustrated guidebook is written in the language of teens, as a “get real” discussion about what really goes on inside the minds of people when we share space together. Adults also use the book to use with students and to learn about and help discuss and unravel the social-emotional world of the students we're working with.

Many practical strategies help the reader figure out what impression they are making on others, how this affects their own emotions and what they could work on to make living in the increasingly complex social world more personally rewarding. Who doesn’t think they could improve in these skills and improve their casual to more complex relationships?

From discussing the “ins and outs” of what it means to be a “Social Thinker” and use related social skills, to figuring out texting, dating, the many different levels of friendship and the many and varied emotions we experience as we relate to others, the authors describe the real world of being with other people. This includes knowing how to sometimes just "fake it” better! The authors are not trying to get every reader to find a group to hang out with; instead, they are providing information to help each person find his or her place and be appreciated by others at whatever level he or she feels comfortable with.

Parents, teachers, counselors, other caregivers and even siblings may also find this book compelling, as it provides some “ah ha” moments that encourage a deeper discussion with these older kids about the social world. While we all work on improving our communication skills, few of us know how to talk about the social mind and how to cope in our very social world of the classroom, hanging out, holding a job, chatting on the Internet, texting and whatever the future holds.
