Daniel Smithâ€™s Monkey Mind is the stunning articulation of what it is like to live with anxiety. As he travels through anxietyâ€™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 â€śMonkey Mind does for anxiety what William Styronâ€™s Darkness Visible did for depression.â€ť Neurologist and bestselling writer Oliver Sacks says, â€śI read Monkey Mind with admiration for its bravery and clarity. . . . I broke out into explosive laughter again and again.â€ť 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.
