About the Author

C. Thomas Gualtieri is a neuropsychiatrist and founding director of the North Carolina Neuropsychiatry Clinics. He is a Distinguished Life Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association.


In a time when representations of OCD feature heavily in the media and it has almost become fashionable to claim 'I am a little bit OCD', Dr Gualtieri's novel offers a frank and illuminating alternative perspective. Through clever use of personal anecdotes and reflection on theory and practice, he seamlessly juxtaposes science with satire to illustrate the obsessive compulsive trait whilst clearly differentiating it from the often disabling disorder. As a professional working with OCD and anxiety disorders, as well as an individual who can definitely identify with the 'OC trait', I found this to be a thoroughly enjoyable read offering equal measure of edification and amusement. -- Dr Sasha Walters, MsC, PhD, DClinPsy Berkshire CAMHS Anxiety and Depression Pathway, University of Reading
With wit and humor and a charming personal, conversational style, Dr. Gualtieri's treatment of our obsessions and compulsions is far more than a medical study of the brain. It's an engaging, pleasurable read and deserves not only professional praise but a wide, popular audience. -- James Reston, Jr., author of Fragile Innocence: A Father's Memoir of His Daughter's Courageous Journey
