Fascinating explanation of OCD, Psychopaths!

I found this title very engrossing in understanding the disconnect of thought and feeling in those with OCD; the author proposes many afflicted with this are philosophers and musicians. It is their inner struggle of overthinking instead of taking action which seems to feed this condition. Good job by narrator at keeping it interesting.

As a woman, I feel free now!

This book is brilliant. I'm a woman who was, at one time, part of the feminist movement. Deep down I knew something did not make logical sense. I am no longer in denial about my psychology as a woman. I feel like I am free from the psychopathic propaganda machine. Thank you Dr. J.-M. Kuzynski. Loved Garteth's narration as well with his professional English accent. It was enjoyable to listen to while also fascinating. I listened to this one driving and actually had to pull over to listen to some of the portions so I could take notes. People who call themselves feminists might re-think their assumptions after listening to this but you truly have to be a person with higher thinking skills. I can't see someone who just goes along with the crowd being able to even understand this deep work much less change because of it. I just feel free now!

insightful about gender

and sexuality, albeit in a rather freudian way. nettle-graspingly resolute, sometimes mysogynist (but semi-accurately so). instructive, taught me some moves, if nothing else,

absolutely brilliant

this is the most incisive 'insider' look at ocd i have ever read. the author clearly has inside knowledge, and he also has a mass of erudition and carefully honed intelligence. plus, it's really raw and real and accurate. yes, there is some disturbing and politically incorrect material, but that is because, as the author shows, a certain degree of political incorrectness, especially in relation to matters relating to sexuality, is deeply ingrained in ocd. a phenomenal work. highly recommend

phenomenally sharp analysis of OCD a

This is book is brisk, fast, sharp, deep--and accurate. The author obviously has 'inside information', and has organized it, with beyond-all-belief acuity. If Nietzsche knew about OCD, it would be this. A little edgy for some.

Good until it’s very sexist

The first hour was very interesting with some excellent ideas. However, around the hour mark there is an entire essay on how a woman is defunct without an assertive man. It talks about how feminists are psychopaths and their cries of psychopathy should not Ben succumbed to by men as it shows weak will. I then looked at the cover and saw two skimpily dressed women and it suddenly all made sense.

I was really enjoying this until this essay, which shows its overall discredit. Such a shame that the author has such flawed thinking.
