...nine, ten, do it again : A Guide to Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, written for people with OCD and their families, is very informative and easy to read. Both sufferers and their carers will find the book extremely useful. The symptoms of obsessions and compulsions, as well as their differences, are clearly explained. Some simple statistics are presented regarding the onset and course of OCD and treatments, including behaviour therapy and pharmacotherapy, are described.
Kathryn's personal experience with OCD, and her many years of experience of helping others with OCD, is clearly reflected in her warm and empathic style of writing and her obvious understanding of the nature and impact of the disorder.
What makes Kathryn I'Anson's book particularly interesting, is that she has included personal stories and poems written by people with OCD and caregivers. These contributions are very insightful and moving, and provide an experiential understanding of OCD which will be very helpful for many people. Kathryn emphasises the important role of self-help in the journey of recovery and many self-help strategies are included. Kathryn has also graciously provided a list of other relevant self-help books (as well as practitioner books), written by other authors. -- John Geros, Vice President, OC & Anxiety Disorders Foundation Victoria, Australia
