Winokur, Jon. Encyclopedia Neurotica.
This book is for the bathroom bookcase with Winokur's curmudgeon series. This is not an insult. The subject of this collection is psychiatry, and the book is very inclusive, although it doesn't include my neurosis, hoarding.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

What it does include is many quotes and both long and short, old and modern definitions. Additionally, and most interestingly, it has some biographies of famous neurotics and psychotics. The longest is of Howard Hughes - 9 pages. My favorites were of Oscar Levant and Dr. Szasz (not to be confused with Dr. Seuss). However, Winokur must tell us if the quotable Howard Ogden and his book Pensamentoes, Vol. II are real or a pseudonym of his imagination.
