This is the best book on OCD I have read - not as a health professional but as a sufferer.
"pspeter"
The book provides extensive information about the symptoms of OCD and suggests various methods of treatment.
Coyote
In addition to these five areas, the book is very well laid out in an easy-to-read fashion.

As I am a person who has Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and also a facilitator of a support group for the illness for seven years, I am so pleased to have a wonderful, new resource. THE OCD WORKBOOK:Your Guide to Breaking Free from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder by Dr. Bruce M. Hyman PhD. and Cherry Pedrick R.N. is the first book written about Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder that I have ever read that provides information in five key areas consolidated into one text. The five areas include:
1. AN INVALUABLE, DETAILED EXPLANATION OF THE ILLNESS. This information includes an extensive definition of the illness and its symptoms. As is found throughout all of the book, the language is in laymen's terms so that all can learn from the information. 2. PERSONAL TESTIMONIALS. These are placed in various parts of the book to help sufferers and their loved ones better relate to the illness. 3. EXPLANATION OF TREATMENT OPTIONS. There is a very exptensive discussion of various treatment options and how they work. Once again, this is written in a language everyone can understand. 4. EXERCISES TO ASSIST IN TREATMENT. This is probably the most important and unique aspect of the book. As the name of the book suggests, this is a WORKBOOK that offers the reader the opportunity to stop and examine his or her personal situation. By actually writing answers to these exercises, a unique insight into how a person can tackle OCD or how a loved one can be helped is offered. Journalizing is often important in treatment and this book helps a person to do this in an orderly and non-intimidating manner. 5.IDEAS ON HOW TO HANDLE RELAPSES. Unfortunatley, those who are successful with treatment may very well have relapses.

While there is no definitive cure for OCD, this book comes as close as can be to coming up with one. By far the best book for OCD in the market today, Dr. Hyman's book gives a concrete guide to breaking free from the terrible mental illness that has for so often kept me and many others from the joy of life and a happy existence.
The notion that only cognitive behavior therapy, and not traditional psychotherapy, can treat OCD has finally reached the mainstream. I attribute a 75% improvement with my OCD (while at the same time decreasing my medication by 75%)from Dr. Hyman's novel approach. His book is truly a blessing and SHOULD BE READ BY ANY INDIVIDUAL OR FAMILY MEMBER OF AN INDIVIDUAL fighting this insidious disease.

I've purchased two copies of this book for family members with OCD, and it has helped immensely. It gave me a much clearer understanding of the mind of the OCD sufferer, and helped my loved ones actively participate in their recovery. Highly recommended.

As a clinical psychologist who treats patients with OCD, I frequently use the OCD Workbook. This is a very practical and helpful resource for anyone suffering from OCD. The authors offer specific techniques based upon sound research. This is a great tool, and I highly recommend it.

Thanks heavens for Dr. Bruce Hyman and Cherry Pedrick! This is by far the best and most comprehensive book on OCD currently available. This book is clearly written in easy-to-understand language. Not only does it provide an excellently organized self-help program, it also gives vital information for the family members of the person struggling with OCD, something that other books only touch on, at best.
For anyone dealing with OCD, whether you have it yourself, or are trying to be understanding and supportive of someone you know, this is a must read!

This is the best book on OCD I have read - not as a health professional but as a sufferer. It is clear and practical and the information is presented in a tight and clear way. I would thoroughly recommend this book.

I am one of the people who wrote a review that is quoted on the back of the book. You can't see that till you buy it so I thought I would write something here as well. What Hyman and Pedrick have done is write a very valuable self help resource book. It can be used working with a therapist or by yourself. I frequently recomend it to people I work with and on the Internet who ask me about OCD.
