11 of 12 people found the following review helpful By R. MACKENZIE on November 9, 2007
Format: Paperback
After reading this book, there are two points that I would like to raise before I give you my overall opinion, so bare with me.

Structure: The structure of the book is not the best and at times may confuse an individual using it to overcome their Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. You have to keep referring to the appendix which is a section that probably amounts to one third of the book. You may need to read a few of the chapters twice before you get the understanding that you will need.

Spelling and grammar: There were problems with spelling and grammar throughout the book, which were annoying but didn't really create a massive problem.

My overall thoughts on this book is that it is an excellent resource for OCD sufferers and therapists alike. It is very rich with 'real' help and advice that is reasonably easy to implement. If you suffer from OCD or are a therapist that helps others with OCD then you really should make a commitment to yourself to read this book. The least that it will do is enlighten you to the disorder.

Warmly,

Richard MacKenzie
Author of Self-Change Hypnosis

The strategies are based on common sense and are simple to practice and to use. I'm still reading it, so I still have much to learn.
