"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
