Monkey Mind: A Memoir of Anxiety - Daniel B. Smith I'm still trying to figure out what the message of this book was. Between having to look up every other word (once again leading me to feel stupid) and never really going anywhere with his story, this was not my cup of tea. I get that the writer had a traumatic experience at a young age (several actually) but I don't really get a sense of him doing anything about it. I think I missed something but regardless this isn't a book I will recommend.
