Review


"...[the authors] have been leading the way in documenting characteristics of sufferers and how to treat the condition...an excellent guide for therapists who have only limited experience in treating hoarding, as well as for those who treat other subtypes of OCD but not necessarily hoarding."--Cognitive and Behavioral Practice


"There are a fair number of self-help books out there on aspects of OCD. Buried in Treasures is among the best of them. People with a hoarding problem should definitely find value in this book. It also belongs on the shelf of many mental health providers because whatever population one is working with will have its share of individuals with this problem. I hope that, in future, the authors may bring their knowledge, experience, and excellent writing skills to additional self-help books on aspects of OCD." --PsycCRITIQUES


"I would recommend this book to treatment providers, professional organizers and the compulsive hoarder. This book, if used properly, will guide the reader to clutter-free living!" -Patricia B. Perkins, JD, Executive Director, OC Foundation, Inc.


"The world's leading experts on compulsive acquiring, hoarding and saving have presented their proven, step-by-step treatment in a practical, easy-to-understand format that will be useful to anyone who hoards, as well as any professional who treats this problem. If you are looking for ways to clear your clutter, you need to read this book now!" -Martin M. Antony, Ph.D., ABPP, Professor, Department of Psychology, Ryerson University, Author, When Perfect Isn't Good Enough

"Buried in Treasures is one of the few books I regularly recommend to clients and other professionals searching for clear, accurate and practical information on hoarders and hoarding behavior. David Tolin and his colleagues distill the latest research and apply a very human touch in this excellent reference." -Peter Walsh, Professional Organizer and Author of NY Times best-seller It's All Too Much

This book represents state of the art information on how to approach hoarding. It is directed at a self-help audience but can also be used with a support group. I am a psychologist and work with people who have the problem and it was useful to read but the Kindle version is not ideal for the person trying to use it themselves. The book has a number of places where you need to answer some questions. They do not show up well in the Kindle version and of course there is no way to record your answer in the book.

This is a book for those of us with serious "stuff" problems who are determined to de-clutter. Open and frank about the hard work of "letting go" of treasures.

This book and the Workbook were recommended to me by a psychologist. I'm reading it in preparation for getting into some "hoarding" specific counseling. It based on the latest research-based information. I already have gained a lot of insights and practical stratigies I'm putting to use. I can' t wait to get my "house in order" (physically and emotionally). With theis book, workbook and counseling, I am super optimistic!

Practical, gentle, informative, life-altering...for people overwhelmed with too much stuff and acquiring additional stuff. The boxes for others involved (family member, friends, coach, etc), open new types of communication that shift awareness and support dynamics. Become differently aware of who you are among your excess of treasures.

This book was very helpful in understanding and giving insight in to the cluttering behavior of a close relative. Actual scientific observations of behavioral differences were very helpful. Good to keep referring back to for effective coping strategies. Felt much more hopeful after reading and not nearly as despairing. Now, if only I could get my relative to read it!

This is very good. I need this book so that I can rethink my need to keep everything. I am not that bad yet, but somehow I can't put everything away in a 2500 sq. ft. house.

The book is relatively easy to read and understand. The self-assessments are good. I am not sure that the chapter order is the best order for actual reading. I guess it can be different from person to person. The "negative" chapters might not be so helpful right at the beginning of the book. Some good motivators can be more helpful.

Like the writers say, reading this book will not stop you from hoarding, but this is a very good first step. Also excellent information if your family member or friend has hoarding symptoms.
