Book Review- Stuff: Compulsive Hoarding and the Meaning of Things by Randy Frost and Gail Steketee



This book was amazing. In each chapter, the authors, Randy Frost and Gail Steketee, went into detail about specific cases. There were so many factors about hoarding that I had not thought about before reading this book. The prologue drew me in immediately. The first story was about the Collyer brothers in the 1940’s. I had never heard of them before this, so I was extremely intrigued. There was one chapter about animal hoarding and a chapter about children who are hoarders. I would recommend this book to anyone, especially those who want to learn more about compulsive hoarding disorder. I give this book 5/5 stars. I liked this book so much because I am considering specializing in compulsive hoarding in the future, it’s a long way from now as I am still in undergraduate. It’s one of my many options, so I love to learn about it.
