He is the author of a number of books. With Elizabeth Ferber, he wrote "Why am I Up, Why am I Down: Understanding Bipolar Disorder." In "Surviving Cancer Emotionally: Learning How to Heal" he argues that "a patient's emotional well-being improves her quality of life" while not connecting emotional states directly to the spread of cancer.[2] He is also the author of "Is it Alzheimers: What to do When Loved Ones Can't Remember What They Should" (1998), "Museum of Dreams," and "The World's A Small Town." His book, coauthored with Robert Aquinas McNally, "If You Think You Have Panic Disorder" took Panic Disorder: A Critical Analysis (1994), McNally's original "comprehensive and lucid" and "well written" text,[3] and adapted it for a wider audience.

Granet's medical degree is from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.[4]
