Editorial Reviews

"It's well written, totally relatable...and it really puts out a message that empowers you to give everything your all rather than listen to that Monkey in your brain that's getting in your way.... I found that this book did an absolutely wonderful job of being both informative and understanding in its message." --The Tipsy Writer "Refreshing... Gregory writes in a no-nonsense, straightforward tone that sets it apart from books that coddle you through the truth. If you're willing to put in the work, then Shut Your Monkey can change your life. So keep a copy wherever you do your most creative work. It'll be there when you need it." --Superhero You
