“This is the kind of memoir you've likely never read before. To be human is to understand what anxiety is, but few understand anxiety as a true mental disorder. Smith's real strength is his ability to provide the reader with very clear descriptions of what it means to suffers from chronic anxiety in ways that are both bracingly honest and self-deprecatingly funny. For readers who suffer anxiety, the world just may feel a tiny less lonely; for others, the hope is that this book will give insight into, and compassion for, those who do.”
-- Jennifer Wills Geraedts, Beagle Books, Park Rapids, MN
