  • Monkey Mind: A Memoir of Anxiety

    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.

    A very interesting perspective from someone who has a debilitating anxiety condition. If you have ever thought you suffer from anxiety, this will make you feel better about your own condition, and may help you through it.

    We have a system in crisis, but Annie Leonard shows us that this is not the way things have to be. It's within our power to stop the environmental damage, social injustice, and health hazards caused by polluting production and excessive consumption, and Leonard shows us how. Expansive, galvanizing, and sobering yet optimistic, The Story of Stuff transforms how we think about our lives and our relationship to the planet.

    Story

    What a great book! Whether you are already an environmental activist, or if you are completely new to the concept, this story will draw you in. Annie Leonard dives into the issues that we like to ignore about our own consumer culture, while making a convincing argument to re-consider the way that we treat our 'stuff', and challenges us to understand the implications of our choices as a consumer. Most importantly, she urges us to consider how we can collectively make a change in the system. It is a story that everyone needs to hear, or can act as a reminder to those of us who may get caught up in the North American way of life - our possessions influence our health, our way of life, and cause social injustices that none of us should find acceptable. She does a wonderful job of conveying the message through her performance in this audiobook, and makes references to sources that will discuss these issues more in-depth. I suggest this book to everyone!
