Addicted to the Monkey Mind is one of the most concrete, practical self-help books I have ever read. A must-read!” — Jennifer Read Hawthorne, co-author of #1 New York Times best sellers Chicken Soup for the Woman’s Soul and Chicken Soup for the Mother’s Soul

JF Benoist has given us a book of insight and clarity. Both psychotherapists and their clients will greatly benefit. I highly recommend this book.” — Teni Garrett-Johnson, Ph.D., Licensed Clinical Psychologist

“I hold this book as a potent, personal therapeutic tool. JF goes straight to the core of human dysfunction in a most unique way.” — Bill Kauth, co-founder of The ManKind Project

I am a CSAC working with a client who is currently at an in-patient treatment program. Client has been in and out of prison using meth and gambling as ways to cope. Diagnosed ADHD, client very vulnerable to “getting out of treatment.” Client said he has gone through prison treatment program and it “made sense.” Treatment program “not so much.” I gave this client the book. He said the “best book ever read,” and “it explained in the simplest way, why he does the things he does!” As a mental health counselor, I could not have said this with as much emphasis as the client. I would recommend giving this book to the hard-to-reach clients. It could save their life.” — Verified Amazon customer

One of the most important books you will ever read. The way he teaches his knowledge makes the topic highly accessible for everyone. It is a book where you will have a realisation. As someone with a long history of self-sabotage, this has been life changing for me. I cannot recommend it enough, I’ve read a lot of books of its ilk and this one really is up there with the best of the best.” — Nigel, verified Amazon customer

I would recommend this book to anyone who is living. Adulting isn’t always easing and learning new tools along the way to help enrich our lives could only be seen as a positive. I’ve learn so much about myself and the power I have to change my viewpoint. While it’s easier said than done, I stay hopefully. I have been implementing these strategies daily over several months and am very pleased with my progress!” — Angela, verified Amazon customer
