    Great and Informative read

    I enjoyed reading this book as I have a few hoaders in my family...notice and realize I too have the tendency to keep/hold on to stuff for the sake of memories; and how simply seeing these objects helps my memory recall of "back when..." Seeing how I already have these tendencies allows me to be more aware of my behavior and how I can hopefully prevent stuff taking over my life.
    I highly recommend this book to anyone who is connected to a hoarder. There is way more to the process and reasoning behind why, mentally and emotionally, people end up like those individuals in this book. Understanding a person is more useful than judging ones behaviors.

    I just found this book today in Nooks Deal of the Day. Thank yo

    I just found this book today in Nooks Deal of the Day. Thank you so much. 5 years ago I had to down size because of my husbands health and now we live I a 1600 sq. ft. home. I am use to 3 bdrooms, 3 baths ,family room, separate laundry, etc. I still have boxes of God Only Knows in my poor daughters house. Basement and attic. I can not bring myself to even look in these boxes. I have collected many things from my 38 years of travel. I use to have room for. I can not let this stuff go. I am hoping that this book will give the encouragement I need to even start. Thanks again.

    Super interesting

    A great look into the homes of hoarders, causes for hoarding, and the right way to try to treat them.
