One boy spends six hours a day washing himself--and still can't believe he will ever be clean. Another sufferer must check her stove hundreds of times a day to make sure she has turned it off. A woman, in an effort to ensure that her eyebrows are symmetrical, finally plucks out every hair.

All of these people are suffering from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), an emotionally crippling sickness that afflicts up to six million Americans. Cleaning, counting, washing, avoiding, checking-these are some of the pointless rituals that sufferers are powerless to stop. Now a distinguished psychiatrist and expert on OCD reveals exciting breakthroughs in diagnosis, successful new behaviorists therapies and drug treatments, as well as lists of resources and references. Drawing on the extraordinary experiences of her patients, Dr. Judith Rapoport unravels the mysteries surrounding this irrational disorder. --- from the publisher
