Overview

1 in 50 Americans suffer from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. One man has found the secret and is now teaching the world. Steven Diamond, a world famous Las Vegas magician, who has performed in more than thirty nations and entertained millions of people, silently suffered with an undiagnosed illness that brought him to the brink of suicide. He was homeless, raped, and even found his best friends mother dead, hacked into pieces by someone he knew. It wasn't until age 30, after seeing his 8th therapist, and a life-threatening breakdown while performing with the world famous Osmond brothers that he was finally diagnosed with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. OCD is a vicious illness that leaves its suffering victims with a paralyzing fear, endless obsessions, and insatiable compulsions that torment the soul. Join him on an amazing journey as he reveals his most guarded secret for the first time. His emotional story will move you, inspire you and teach you life's greatest lesson.

    I Read it twice!

    This book is about so much more then just a dude with OCD. The life lessons are worthy of us all. After the first read, I went back and highlighted things I felt were important. I'm sure we'll see this guy on Oprah one day.

    Great Book - Very touching and very funny

    For such a difficult life lived, I was surprised at how funny this book is. This guy went through hell and still knows how to laugh. I found the book very inspiring and even emotional at times. The best book I have read this year.

    One of the most touching books I've ever read.

    This book is not a book just for people who have OCD. This book is an amazing story that touches, teaches and inspires through hardship and amazing endurance. Steven's belief in a dream kept him alive during events that would be the end for most people. His story will be a movie someday I am sure.
