Review

Clear-sighted and eminently accessible ... a fundamentally important book that will bring a breath of fresh understanding to sufferers - as well as mental-health professionals, and family and friends of anyone who exhibits symptoms of OCD. I urge anyone to buy it. It will make you think again Sunday Times A fascinating study of the living nightmare that is obsessive compulsive disorder ... one of the best and most readable studies of a mental illness to have emerged in recent years ... an honest and open and, yes, maybe life-changing work -- Matt Haig Observer Combines a scientific account of OCD from ancient times to the most recent research with passages of tenderly written memoir Telegraph The Man Who Couldn't Stop is quite simply book of the year, on living with OCD: just buy it now -- Adam Rutherford Superb... A brave and helpful contribution to deepening our understanding of the intricate complexities of mental ill-health The Times Adam recounts his journey with humour and detachment Literary Review [An] engaging, exhaustively researched neuro memoir, a blend of brain science and personal history Evening Standard This blew me away. Stunning -- Ian Sample Guardian An insider's tour of the OCD brain, providing insight into the cultural and scientific evolution of how we view and treat a disorder that affects up to 3% of people worldwide Nature A captivating first-person account of how a blizzard of unwanted thoughts can become a personal nightmare. At times shocking, at times tragic, at times unbelievably funny, it is a wonderful read Focus A lucid, humane -- only intermittently autobiographical - science book ... offers a clear history through riveting case studies and the work of key figures Metro David Adam, a successful writer, is also a sufferer of obsessive compulsive disorder ... He covers the history of OCD, the treatments that have been tried without success, and his experience of cognitive behavioural therapy, CBT, which was greatly helpful. A well-written, thorough account Independent Well-researched, witty, honest and irreverent, Adam's account proves as irresistible as his subject Kirkus Reviews Brave, funny and illuminating. The swimming pool changing room scene had me gripped with recognition as well as sympathy -- Julie Myerson, Best Books of 2014 Guardian

Book Description

A fascinating read that explores the power of intrusive thoughts, how our brains can turn against us, and how obsessive compulsive disorder can affect an individual's life.
