If you are like most people you probably think OCD or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is funny; if so this book is for you. Also, this book is definitely for sufferers of OCD who will be relieved to know that they are in good company.
David Adam has written a clinical yet human story of his battle with OCD and the result is a very well-written account of the condition. One telling comment he makes is when he describes OCD as comparable to dragging a mental sea anchor around all the time. Not a light read by any means but a worthwhile one.

Slow to get hooked into this and admittedly still reading it, but so far seems more like an autobiography or memoir than a description of the science behind this label or as a how to deal with this challenge.
