Medical Book Club Review: The Hoarder In You

There has been a great deal of attention paid to those who are hoarders - those who take in items that have little to no value to most people and collect it in large amounts. What many people are seeing play out on reality television shows, is a reality for many people right now. The book, The Hoarder In You: How to Live a Happier, Healthier Uncluttered Life, written by Dr. Robin Zasio is a just released medical book you need to read.

Who Is It For?

The Hoarder In You provides a fulfilling look at what many people may know about themselves but may not want to admit: that they hoard items. The book is written by a psychologist who talks about not only what this debilitating condition is, but also where it comes from and how it can happen to almost anyone. It does more than just provide you with information, though. It offers a practical guide to overcoming the condition itself.

The book offers some great information including the following:

·         It teaches you how to improve emotional bonds you may have with the things you acquire.

·         It helps you to make sense of your chaos so you can live a healthier life.

·         It also helps you to create an organizational system that can help you to improve your quality of life while reducing your stress and anxiety as well.

You are not alone if you are dealing with this problem and The Hoarder In You documents some of Dr. Zasio's worst cases. If you are fascinated with the subject, living with a hoarder or are one yourself, this book will provide insight and aid.
