Description
In this stunning articulation of what it is like to live with anxiety, from the author of Muses, Madmen, and Prophets, Daniel Smith drills down through the demonic layers that the disorder creates in the sufferer's mind, charting the self-destructive absurdities and painful internal coherence of anxiety while defanging it with great humor. As leading psychotherapist Aaron Beck notes, "Monkey Mind does for anxiety what William Styron's Darkness Visible did for depression."

"Daniel Smith's anxiety is matched by a wonderful sense of the comic, and it is this which makes Monkey Mind not only a dark, pain-filled book but a hilariously funny one, too. I broke out into explosive laughter again and again."—Oliver Sacks

"Daniel Smith maps the jagged contours of anxiety with such insight, humor and compassion that the result is, oddly, calming. There are countless gems in these pages, including a fresh take on the psycho-pathology of chronic nail biting, an ill-fated ménage a trois—and the funniest perspiration scene since Albert Brooks' sweaty performance in Broadcast News. Read this book. You have nothing to lose but your heart palpitations, and your Xanax habit."—Eric Weiner
