    NOT ORIGINAL

    As the author of the original two, acclaimed books on this subject: "Admit It, You're Crazy! Quirks, Idiosyncrasies, and Irrational Behavior" and "And I Thought I Was Crazy!", my background uniquely qualifies me to comment on this book. I have decades of experience delving into quirks and idiosyncrasies and am recognized for helping to bring the subject to the forefront.

    Despite professing to a "loose interpretation of the term", the author has negatively labeled this behavior as neurosis. I disagree. Most of these do not constitute a debilitating, pathological, anxiety-provoking disorder, they're simply oddities that we all have and which fall within the context of normal behavior. "Neurosis" is an unfair and inaccurate characterization that does a disservice to those who exhibit this harmless behavior. Why use a term that you feel you have to make excuses for? Is it because "quirks", "idiosyncrasies" and "irrational behavior" were already taken?

    From impersonal contributions to her blog, this author did not have the opportunity to acquire additional details, get clarification where necessary and evaluate the authenticity of the person's behavior whereas I?interviewed thousands of people, one on one.

    Contributors are entirely anonymous in her book. My contributors are identified by their gender, age and profession which gives a broader picture of the individual and often, more meaning to their quirks.

    Her book has only one "neurosis" per page which significantly limits the total number in the book. Each of my books has hundreds more examples of quirks and idiosyncrasies than this book.

    I suggest readers compare both books & visit http://www.judyreiser.com
