By the evidence of this memoir, Daniel Smith's intense anxiety has punctuated every arena of his life; from brushing his teeth to even the most casual social interaction; not to mention, college classes and sex. Under "normal" scrutiny, such behavior would elicit tragic overtones or analytical neutrality, but in the case of Smith's Monkey Mind, panic attacks are described with a verve that veers between rampant wit and naked confession. A.J. Jacobs praises this debut as "so bracingly honest, so hilarious, so sharp, it's clear there's one thing he doesn't have to be anxious about."
