Recommended books/sites about social anxiety?

What are some good books and websites for learning how to deal with social anxiety? I'm asking for a friend who is going to a CBT appointment next week, but is interested in learning as much as possible. Are there other resources that would be useful?

My friend used to have problems getting to meet people and interact with them (beyond just being shy), but is now improved to the point of being able to make small talk and so on. However, she's getting stuck when she tries to deal with workplace problems, or develop a relationship from casual small talk to friendship. I've known her for years and value her friendship highly, but other people seem to overlook her.
Can you recommend a book or a website that was helpful to you in a similar situation?
It seems like a reasonably common problem, so if there are previous threads with similar resources that I've missed with my poor search skills, please feel free to point me in the right direction.
