Reviews

"If you are ready to turn the tables on your anxiety, you can find no better book than Don't Feed the Monkey Mind. Jennifer Shannon will help you turn away from the enticing tactics of fearful worry and teach you how to return to the life you love."
--Reid Wilson, PhD, author of Stopping the Noise in Your Head

"This book is a gem for people seeking to tame runaway anxiety and upset. Jennifer Shannon takes the simple metaphor of 'monkey mind' and fleshes it out with wisdom and simple steps that anyone can follow. Here, in plain language, is a comprehensive set of concrete steps to let your anxiety run its course and then fade. Jennifer Shannon has blended the best of cognitive behavioral methods and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) to produce a great contribution to the self-help literature. Here you can learn to return your energy and attention back to your voyage through life, rather than the worries and fears that have hijacked your focus. Professional psychotherapists will also find it useful. I highly recommend it!"
--David Carbonell, PhD, Chicago-based psychologist specializing in treating fears and phobias; author of Panic Attacks Workbook and The Worry Trick; and "coach" at www.anxietycoach.com
"Don't Feed the Monkey Mind is clear and easy to understand. The book will teach you simple and powerful strategies to harness fear and worry. Jennifer Shannon teaches you how to transform your life by taking the 'monkey' out of your mind."
--Dennis Greenberger, PhD, coauthor of Mind Over Mood

"Don't Feed the Monkey Mind begins with a well-written synopsis of basic attitudes and mental habits that perpetuate anxiety. The book follows with a set of clear, concise changes in mind-set and behavioral strategies to overcome anxiety at its roots. The 'monkey mind' concept is an apt, original contribution. Examples of points provided by the author as well as references to her personal story help make the book accessible to readers of all kinds."
--Edmund J. Bourne, PhD, author of The Anxiety & Phobia Workbook and Coping with Anxiety
