Clear-sighted and eminently accessible ... a fundamentally important book that will bring a breath of fresh understanding to sufferers - as well as mental-health professionals, and family and friends of anyone who exhibits symptoms of OCD. I urge anyone to buy it. It will make you think again
A fascinating study of the living nightmare that is obsessive compulsive disorder ... one of the best and most readable studies of a mental illness to have emerged in recent years ... an honest and open and, yes, maybe life-changing work
Combines a scientific account of OCD from ancient times to the most recent research with passages of tenderly written memoir
The Man Who Couldn't Stop is quite simply book of the year, on living with OCD: just buy it now
