While on vacation, Raymond incessantly checked the carpets of Disney World looking for poison he had seen spilled there -- in his mind....Sherry was terrified of her thoughts about stabbing her baby daughter....Jeff couldn't silence a mental voice urging him to have sex with men and animals....

Howard Hughes had it. So did historical figures Martin Luther and Ignatius of Loyola. They all suffered from obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) -- as do over five million Americans who need to know that there is now hope and help. Ian Osborn, M.D., a specialist in OCD and a sufferer himself, has written the first comprehensive book on the experience, diagnosis, and treatment of OCD. He reveals recent discoveries about the disease as a biological disorder -- a physical, not a psychological abnormality -- and the exciting new therapies that have dramatically changed the future for OCD sufferers. His wise, compassionate book includes:
-- Pencil-and-paper tests for self-diagnosis
-- Six steps to conquering OCD
-- Medication that works
-- Early signs that show OCD in children
-- Guidelines for family members
-- A comprehensive listing of where to find organizations and support groups...and more
