Myself and a few others have been just learning the literature and putting things in practice for the last 6 months, and I have to say that not only my social life has improved but also other aspects such as being able to sell yourself more to an employer, impressing on interviews etc.
Myself, like my wingmen have alot of work to do, I guess if you can 'will' yourself to put things in practice then things will eventually work out and fall into place. I find that when you learn from other people in the same situation as you, you find each individual picks up theories or things better than other people and vice versa. I guess like Gripp said, the bootcamps probably gets you 'instant' results, however I believe taking a long journey yields more satisfaction
Life... I understand it less and less, but love it more and more.
All the best, top10toys
