Overview

From the hit A&E show Hoarders, psychologist Dr. Robin Zasio shows readers how to take control of their stuff and de-clutter their lives.

Recently, the once little-known condition of hoarding has become a household phrase-in part due to the popularity of the Emmy Award-winning television show Hoarders, which has captivated audiences with its stark and heartbreaking look at the people who suffer from this paralyzing condition.

Contributing expert to Hoarders Dr. Robin Zasio believes that our fascination with hoarding stems from the fact that most of us fall somewhere on the hoarding continuum. In The Hoarder in You, Dr. Zasio shares behind-the-scenes stories from the show, including some of the most serious cases of hoarding that she's encountered-and explains how readers can learn from these extreme examples. She also shares psychological and practical advice for de-cluttering and organizing, including how to tame the emotional pull of acquiring additional things, make order out of chaos by getting a handle on cluter, and create an organizational system that reduces stress and anxiety.

Editorial Reviews

Chris Schoppa
[Zasio's] book should help people deal with the clutter in their lives, recognize the merits of decluttering and take a more rational stance toward their possessions.
—The Washington Post
Publishers Weekly
The hit A&E series Hoarders has viewers glued to their television, gasping at the horror of other people's lives. In her first book, Zasio, the show's featured doctor, helps everyone learn to control their relationship with "stuff." For the compulsive hoarders and the ordinary collectors, Zasio offers insightful information and educated solutions for transforming relationships with material things, a core issue for many that struggle with hoarding. Sidebars in each chapter address important questions like, "Does Your Clutter Cause Conflict?" and "Are You Sentimental or Stuck?," which forces readers to examine what they buy and hold onto. An eye-opening look at hoarders, Zasio's book is an easy to read, well-organized guide to improving your life and reforming the way you look at the mundane. Agency: Fletcher & Company. (Dec.)
