Any one that suffers from chronic anxiety and those that love them.
Read from July 16 to 23, 2012
Monkey Mind takes a different approach to the issue of anxiety that most books on the topic might choose. The reader is presented with three of the authors significant battles with anxiety and takes the reader from the start (or the perceived start) of the problem through how he has dealt and deals with the anxiety in his life.
For those who suffer the affects of chronic anxiety the memoir gives reassurance that while the anxiety will always be something you have to deal with it doesn't have to completely take over your life. It also shares the importance of finding your own ways of coping.
For those who only look at anxiety as an occasional issue that is more bothersome than debilitating, there is the hope that by reading this book you might have a better understanding of what chronic anxiety is and how those afflicted with it approach each day differently than they do.
For those thinking that this is a "self-help" book, go back and read the title. It is a memoir. It is the author's memories. If you are looking for that "self-help" book, go to another section of the library.
