In “First We Make the Beast Beautiful”, Sarah Wilson directs her intense focus and fierce investigatory skills onto her lifetime companion; anxiety. Looking at the treatments and triggers, the fashions and fads, she reads widely and interviews fellow sufferers, mental health experts, philosophers, and even the Dalai Lama; processing all she learns through the prism of her own experiences. Practical and poetic, wise and funny, this is a small book with a big heart and it will encourage the myriad sufferers of the world’s most common mental illness to feel not just better about their condition, but also delighted by the possibilities it offers for a richer and fuller life.
