"This book is NOT JUST for OCD sufferers. Many of us have fleeting glimpses of being stuck in our minds. Jon Grayson's cutting-edge approach can help all of us learn to confront our fears as we learn to live in the moment." —Dr. Mehmet Oz
"Dr. Grayson... writes about [OCD] with the mind of a scholar and the heart of a healer. Anyone who is plagued with chronic doubt, anxiety, and destructive rigid social behavior should read this book, and listen to what it says." —Daniel Gottlieb, Ph.D., host of NPR's Voices in the Family
"Not just another self-help book, this is an actual course of interactive therapy that breaks the cycle of fears and ritual. Dr. Grayson's uniquely empathetic and effective approach offers readers the understanding and motivation they need to get well—and stay well."—Patricia B. Perkins, J.D., executive director, Obsessive-Compulsive Foundation

I'm an OCD sufferer, having gone through many different forms over the years, including Harm-OCD, obsessing about obsessing, health concerns, Relationship OCD, and others. Other books were good, and they provided a lot of good reassurance, but as you may know, with OCD, reassurance isn't always a good thing. I found little to no reassurance in this book, instead I found strong motivation, tools for recovery, and resources to support me in the process.
Dr. Grayson is a big proponent of Exposure and Response Prevention, the "gold standard" of OCD treatment today. In a way, there's quite a bit of "tough love", but that's exactly what we need. And at the risk of sounding less OCD and more schizophrenic, it's like Dr. Grayson could read my mind. So many times he said "You're probably thinking..." or "You know that...", and he was almost always right. He has a deep, deep understanding of the OCD mind. His understanding was more evident than any other author I've read.
While reading previous books, I ignored exercises because I thought they were silly, contrived, or unnecessary. He addresses this mentality, and I found myself doing all of the exercises. The exercises are mostly very useful.
He really lays it all out. He does a brief overview of OCD, but doesn't belabor it - after all, most of us who are reading this book know about it first-hand. He describes the various manifestations and related disorders, how their presence can present challenges, and how those challenges can be overcome. It's true that it's all treated mainly the same way, but it's naive to deny that there are unique challenges to each theme. He helps the reader design individualized recovery plans through numerous exercises. He addresses family and friends, teaching them how they can best support their loved ones with OCD. He lays out a clear plan to avoid major relapses and stay "better". Finally, he leaves the reader with resources for further help, including information on support groups, organizations, therapists, etc. He takes all of this complicated material and makes it easy - learn to live with uncertainty, and your life will improve.
I'm confident in saying that this is the best book on OCD I've ever read. I absolutely recommend it to both the individual just learning about OCD and the learned, experienced individual. I will need to reread this one, but more importantly I will use its tools to beat my OCD.
