    Okay, I'm a bit biased, because I published and co-wrote this - BUT...this is the first book of its kind, the ONLY collection of fiction, poetry and artwork about OCD...all written by people with OCD. The finished result was even better than I dreamt it would be - it's a mix of realism, sci-fi, fantasy and horror, with a range of emotions including joy and rage, sorrow and pain, frustration and hope - even humour. It will enlighten, empathise and inspire. It's also beautiful to look at.

I believe it is one of the most important books in the OCD field for a long time.
