Format: Paperback
This book can be very helpful for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) sufferers, their loved ones and therapists. It gives examples, defines OCD (as well as, other disorders) and shows a person what they can do to help themselves or others with OCD. This book is written in a way that is easy for anyone to understand, not just therapists. It gives people with OCD the information they need to better understand the disorder and helps them figure out what is the best way for them to cope with it. This book is interesting and a useful guide for anyone who must deal with OCD on a daily basis. The only thing I would have liked to have seen would be more expanded definitions of some of the different actions and thoughts seen in OCD patients.

Format: Paperback
When I began intensive treatment for my OCD, my therapist told me I had to read this book before we started the treatment, ERP. That was the best thing she could have ever done. I knew little about OCD over all and absolutley nothing about CBT or ERP. This book explained all that to me in a very easy to understand way. It is a great first book on OCD and OCD treatment to begin with, like OCD 101. Once I started it, I couldn't put it down. There isn't hardly a page in the book that isn't underlined, highlighted, or written in the margins. This book was truly my OCD Bible. It is an excellent book to start with, for learning all the basics and without a doubt, I did so much better in treatment because I read this book and understood what the treatment was and why it works. I also heard Gail Steketee speak at the National OC Conference and got to talk with her as well. She is an extremely knowledgeable in the field and very down to earth.

Format: Paperback
This book has been such a big help to me on the path of overcoming my lifelong OCD. My therapist recommended it to me and goodness, did it ever help! It put so much into perspective for me, and gave me the hope that I needed to fight this. It also helped me realize WHY I have OCD in the first place, and how to better understand other anxiety sufferers in my life. I would recommend it to anyone who suffers from OCD, or knows someone who does.
