I'm still trying to figure out what the message of this book was. Between having to look up every other word (once again leading me to feel stupid) and never really going anywhere with his story, this was not my cup of tea. I get that the writer had a traumatic experience at a young age (several actually) but I don't really get a sense of him doing anything about it. I think I missed something but regardless this isn't a book I will recommend. ( )

Daniel Smith’s Monkey Mind is the stunning articulation of what it is like to live with anxiety. As he travels through anxiety’s demonic layers, Smith defangs the disorder with great humor and evocatively expresses its self-destructive absurdities and painful internal coherence. Aaron Beck, the most influential doctor in modern psychotherapy, says that “Monkey Mind does for anxiety what William Styron’s Darkness Visible did for depression.” Neurologist and bestselling writer Oliver Sacks says, “I read Monkey Mind with admiration for its bravery and clarity. . . . I broke out into explosive laughter again and again.” Here, finally, comes relief and recognition to all those who want someone to put what they feel, or what their loved ones feel, into words.

The author did a wonderful job of talking about the roots of anxiety -- the discussions of Philip Roth were particularly insightful. Certainly its no revelation that Jews corner the market on anxiety. Neurotic Jewish men have not been the kings of navel gazing literature and stand up comedy for no reason. Smith though goes farther with the analysis, and as someone who has read a lot of Roth, and loves his work, I learned a couple things. So I learned a bit about Roth and a bit about anxiety, and I was entertained. Definitely worthwhile. ( )

Not funny. Not insightful. Waste of your time. ( )

There are some books that really resonate with you, that are exactly what you need to be reading at the moment you are turning those pages.

This is one of those books for me.

Some personal information is important here. I have an anxiety disorder, and reading is something that helps to relax me. So when I can find a book that speaks truth about what I feel, it's really special for me.

Smith is someone who has been there, and continues to be there, and on top of that, he writes really well. I found myself nodding as I turned pages, feeling understood and inspired. He writes about his life and experiences, but he expands on his personal stories to make them universal truths.

Smith is honest, and heartfelt, and true. He has written the kind of book I want to give to people to help them understand what it feels like to live with anxiety, and that I want to keep on my shelf to revisit whenever it is needed. ( )
