Recommends it for: OCD sufferers and their therapists

True story: My mother-in-law had just left after a lengthy visit, and I was trying to get back into doing my own housework again. My mother-in-law is extremely helpful, but putting your house in someone else’s hands always comes at a price as things will not necessarily be done the way you would do them.

3.5. This book is comprehensive in terms of symptom coverage, and is a full self-help book replete with symptom checklists. There is also discussion of oc-spectrum disorders like body dysmorphic diaorder and hypochondrias. Although I don't agree with everything Grayson says, he takes more risks and is more open or honest than a sundry conception of OCD.

This is a very good book. It is also very intense. I wouldn't recommend it unless you're reading it for scholarship or you've exhausted all options for getting help from an actual person. And definitely buy a copy, don't get it from the library, so that you can go at your own pace.

This man knows what he's talking about, and is very compassionate towards those who suffer from OCD. My copy was borrowed from the library, so I didn't fill out the exercises. Now, I want to buy it so I can do so! I highly recommend this book to those who know well the intense battle associated with coping with OCD.
