Industry Reviews

'Outstandingly good; it is both practical and thought provoking and, one suspects, destined to become a classic of its kind.' - American Journal of Psychiatry 'Because of its many excellent chapters, the volume would certainly be of interest to a wide readership. This would include researchers, clinicians, and graduate students who seek to learn more about the opulent complexity of the disorder.' - Journal of Cognitive Psychotherapy 'At last, a comprehensive scrutiny of theoretical, research, and treatment approaches to one of the most difficult problems encountered in clinical practice.... This highly readable book is a "must" for psychotherapists, psychopharmacologists, and researchers attempting to unravel this disorder.' - Aaron T. Beck, MD 'Probably the most comprehensive and balanced survey of this illness available.... The first two parts offer an outstanding appraisal of the state of the art of the field and how these insights translate into the clinical approach.' - Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics 'A highly qualified group of editors combined to produce a state-of-the-art text on obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). They assembled an international representation of expert contributors but managed to create a volume that reads as if it were written by one person.... Case histories, chapter references, and tables complete a scholarly presentation of an important topic. A valuable and complete text on the subject, this is a worthy acquisition for both undergraduate and graduate level psychology collections.' - Choice
