    "Abreviated book"

    I found large portions of this book "abridged". I would not get this audio book, but read the whole book instead. The cost is about same same, and worth it.

    "People with OCD must read this book."

    This book was a recommendation from my doctor. The steps the author gives to beat OCD are very reasonable and I am trying my hardest to do it. I think anyone who suffers from OCD should read this book.

    Story
    "Informative and Helpful."

    I have been diagnosed with OCD and have traits of a Personality Disorder. I was introduced to this book by my psychiatrist. He thought highly of the book and wanted me to read it as a tool to help me with my mental disorders. I enjoyed the book, found it helpful and wanted it more accessible, so I purchased the audio copy.

    I think this book would be helpful for anyone diagnosed or otherwise involved with someone with OCD or OCPD; such as a physician, nurse, anyone in the mental health field or a loved one.

    Story
    "Very brief"

    This book is very brief. It touches a bit in mindfulness but not on how to practice it. Story about fake thoughts is a bit fiction to me.
