Addendum:This book is NOT specifically for just OCD, it covered different kinds of anxiety issues. My review made it seem it's only for OCD, it's not.
It is apparent that Dr. Wilson knows his "stuff" from a neurological perspective but the scientific descriptions are balanced with illustrations from everyday life so we laymen can understand it. In addition, Dr. Wilson's use of humor helps to defuse a topic that is, in and of itself, anxiety-provoking.
If you suffer from anxiety, buy this book and take to heart what Dr. Wilson writes. It has helped to quiet the noises in my head and maybe it will help you too.
It is refreshing to read a book written by an author not trying to hype their premise. The book is really about understanding the various senses as they are activated in real world situations, and the resulting self talk. This book is not about denying your sensory feelings, but rather to understand, and place in the proper context given the situation you find yourself in.
I would recommend this book to a friend.
