Recommended books for patients, carers, and professionals

I have recently written a book with my colleagues Jon Grant and Brian Odlaug, entitled "Clinical Guide to Obsessive Compulsive and Related Disorders". The aim of the book is to give a concise overview about diagnosing and treating OCD and other conditions (trichotillomania, excoriation disorder, hoarding disorder, body dysmorphic disorder, and tic disorders). The book will be useful for medical students, GPs, psychiatrists, psychologists, and other professionals involved in helping patients. It will also be useful to people suffering from these conditions and their relatives, friends, and carers. Above all we wrote this book with practicality in mind: it can be read through to give a refresher or introduction to these conditions, but also used as a reference book.
