OCD Books, Books, Books

In episode 28 of The OCD Stories podcast I talk about the books on my book shelf. I always get asked which books are great for OCD recovery. So instead of talking about my recommendations, I thought I’d take this opportunity between guests to detail what books are on my shelves.

The Acceptance Field Guide

In this episode I discuss 18 books about OCD, and non-OCD books that I think will help your recovery. I try to give 3 points about each book to help you decide which book to read next. There are other great OCD books that I don’t talk about, purely because they are not in my collection. If you’ve read any that I haven’t mentioned I’d love to hear about them. Enjoy!
