    In the insightful narrative tradition of Oliver Sacks, Monkey Mind is an uplifting, smart, and very funny memoir of life with anxiety - America’s most common psychological complaint. We all think we know what being anxious feels like - it is the instinct that made us run from wolves in the prehistoric age and pushes us to perform in the modern one - but for forty million American adults, anxiety is an insidious condition that defines daily life. Yet no popular memoir has been written about that experience - until now.

    What disappointed you about Monkey Mind?

    I expected this book to be entertaining and educational and it was neither. I heard the NPR interview, and I can't understand why this book is getting so much attention. The personal story keeps returning to his sexual encounter with a lesbian, and bounces back and forth in time. There is no new information on anxiety that I can tell. I listened to the whole thing, and kept thinking, "Maybe I'm about to get to the good part." There wasn't one.
