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.

I enjoyed the book. Good inspiration for cleaning up your mess! I did not care for all the questionaires though--I skimmed over them very quickly.
