"Whether shopping with military precision or hanging the tea towels just so, compulsion is something most of us have witnessed in daily life. But compulsions exist along a broad continuum, and at the opposite end of these mild forms exist life altering disorders. Sharon Begley's ... book is the first of its kind to examine all of these behaviors--mild and extreme (OCD, hoarding, acquiring, exercise, even compulsions to do good)--together, as they should be, because while forms of compulsion may look incredibly different, these are actually all coping responses to varying degrees of anxiety"

Sort of interesting but so dry that it was almost like reading a textbook. I did like the explanation of the differences between addiction and compulsion and the look at hoarding versus collecting.
