'I found myself returning again and again to this text for guidance on a range of clinical issues and rarely found it lacking. It is an essential and not excessively priced addition to the personal library of any clinician with special interest in this area and should be made available to all those working in general psychiatric settings.'

"Koran has accomplished a phenomenal state-of-the-art compilation of current knowledge in OCD and related disorders.
The author clearly and concisely presents a master's view of diagnosis, psychotherapy and psychopharmocology for a set of common but difficult pathologies.
The tone and utility reminds me of the more general, spiral-bound volumes by Schatzberg and Cole that are a benchmark for clinical psychopharmacology.
Koran's monograph at least matches, and in many ways surpasses their work, especially in practical discussions of therapy issues. This is very high praise...Finally!
A really frank, open guide to managing treatment!
No complexity is evaded, bringing out crystalline diagnostic and treatment pearls."
