Overview


Rewind, Replay, Repeat is the revealing story of Jeff Bell's struggle with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and his hard-won recovery. Nagging doubt: It's a part of everyday life. Who hasn't doubled back to check on a door or appliance? But what if one check wasn't enough? Nor two or three? And what if nagging doubt grew so intense that physical senses became all but useless? Such was the case for Bell, a husband, father, and highly successful radio news anchor--and one of the millions of Americans living with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). His fascinating memoir recounts the depths to which this debilitating anxiety disorder reduced him--to driving his car in continuous circles, scouring his hands in scalding water, and endlessly rewinding, replaying, and repeating in his head even the most mundane daily experiences. Readers will learn what OCD feels like from the inside, and how healing from such a devastating condition is possible through therapy, determination, and the support of loved ones.

    The book Rewind, Replay, Repeat, by Jeff Bell, is about the auth

    The book Rewind, Replay, Repeat, by Jeff Bell, is about the author’s struggle to overcome Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. Bell would wash his hands in scorching hot water, which is one of the most common rituals or routines that people diagnosed with OCD do. He receives treatment twice; after getting the first treatment of therapy and medications he thought the obsessions were under control, but when they came back he received more treatment.
    What I liked in particular about this book was how Bell wrote about his own experience dealing with OCD. In my opinion, that gives the millions of other Americans living with this disorder the courage to go out and seek help and therapy for these hidden obsessions. I didn’t really like how he basically skipped ahead to his adulthood. He described his adolescence and teen years, but it left me with questions like: Did he know anybody with it in those years, or did anybody he knew about in his family had it, but tried to keep it a secret? The biggest theme present in the overcoming challenges. It is the biggest theme because Bell has to overcome his obsessions. It is a tough struggle he faces, but he overcomes it through therapy. I believe people living with OCD, people who know someone with OCD, or just want to know more about the topic would like this book. They should read it because it shows the struggles in which people deal with and can possibly, like I said earlier, give people courage to go out and get treatment. This book should not be made into a movie though. Although it shows from a firsthand experience, I don’t think it has the excitement movie goers look for. Overall, I give Rewind, Replay, Repeat an 8 out of 10.
