“This is the first self-help book I’ve ever read where the narrator doesn’t over-romanticize the possibilities to get better soon. What a relief! In a calm, orderly manner, author Jennifer Shannon characterizes and gives specific instructions for different kinds of anxiety: shyness and social anxiety, panic and agoraphobia, specific phobias, generalized anxiety, and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). The tone is just so warm and pleasant, and every teen who suffers from anxiety—but doesn’t know what kind yet—can easily recognize him or herself in the detailed and often funny examples, without being scared to death. It’s the best introduction to cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) that I’ve ever seen, and it’s amazing that it’s written specifically for teens, because they need it so much. I wish it had existed for little teenage me.”

If your child wants to understand their anxiety better and not feel alone in it then this is the book you need for them!
Shannon uses the simile of an anxious brain being like a monkey’s mind, “. . . its relentless stream of scary thoughts is like a frightened monkey’s chatter” to give us an image we can remember. She then teaches us how to stop the monkey’s chattering. We all know that hearing stories is a powerful way to understand and remember ideas, and Ms Shannon uses this technique so effectively. She tells stories of fictitious teens . . . of how they become anxious, how the anxiety affects their lives, and how they get better. The stories appear with perceptive illustrations that enhance the ideas and provide the reader with a memorable visual. I related instantly to the characters, and the stories really helped me make a plan to use the “Tools that Tame the Monkey” and “Tools that Rule the Monkey”.
Shannon follows up her stories with straightforward explanations of classic CBT tools I can follow in order to get better (to stop the monkey chatter). When my “monkey brain” is chattering away at night when I’m trying to go to sleep, I practice the techniques Ms Shannon taught me, and am getting better at being able to relax and sleep.

Having read the whole book, I would especially recommend it to anyone who has panic attacks, eating disorders or OCD.
