From the constant distress of infancy to the seasoned anxiety of age, the true neurotic sees the world for what it isa continuous cause for alarm. Hailed as a classic when first published more than 20 years ago, now finally back in print, this welcome new edition of Charles A. Monagan's wildly funny The Neurotic's Handbook is cause for (nervous) celebration. This guide for the white-knuckled brings together the original book and the best of the author's equally hilarious The Reluctant Naturalist, heralding the neurotic's well-founded fear of everyday life in all its worrisome splendor. Chapters on neurotic health ("Are you okay? You look pale..."), neurotic love ("I cant breathe..."), the neurotic at home and outdoors (as far outdoors as one dares to go), the neurotic's rich inner life, the seasons of the neurotic year, and others offer comfort and guidance while opening whole new chasms of concern. With 25 amusing illustrations to help pinpoint exactly what could go wrong, The Complete Neurotic celebrates the lives of the anxious and the anxieties of life.
