Here is what I liked about it:
1. It very practically and accurately explained what it was like to live with OCD. The explanations and examples will help readers understand the condition.
2. OCD is portrayed in a manner that does NOT make you feel as though you are strange or weird.
3. The book explained how there are times when stressors can exacerbate OCD, and times when it is easier to deal with it. It also shows how to identify what is OCD and what isn't.
4. If you have ever felt as though you are controlled by OCD, this book shows you how to take back the power it has had over your life. Obviously OCD doesn't go away, but there are many practical solutions offered that help you develop coping skills.
