Publisher's Summary

Do you perform unnecessary rituals in your daily routine?

Are you a hoarder, afraid to throw out anything, no matter how useless?

Are you unable to control runaway thoughts?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you may be among the five million Americans who suffer from OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder), a mental disorder that can wreak havoc in the daily lives of its sufferers and their families.

In Brain Lock, Dr. Jeffrey M. Schwartz shows you how to:

Free Yourself From Obsessive-Compulsive Behavior!
Dr. Schwartz's revolutionary Four-Step method helps you defeat your irrational impulses by a process of Relabeling, Reattributing, Refocusing, and Revaluing to defeat your bsessive-compulsive tendencies.

Change Your Own Brain Chemistry!
Schwartz's groundbreaking studies have shown that by using his Four-Step Program you can actually "rewire" your brain and modify your genetic disposition.

Lead a Happier, Healthier Life!
Achieve peace of mind as you banish your bothersome OCD symptoms and regain control of your own destiny.

    "Very brief"

    This book is very brief. It touches a bit in mindfulness but not on how to practice it. Story about fake thoughts is a bit fiction to me.

    "Abreviated book"

    I found large portions of this book "abridged". I would not get this audio book, but read the whole book instead. The cost is about same same, and worth it.

    "People with OCD must read this book."

    This book was a recommendation from my doctor. The steps the author gives to beat OCD are very reasonable and I am trying my hardest to do it. I think anyone who suffers from OCD should read this book.

    Story
    "Informative and Helpful."

    I have been diagnosed with OCD and have traits of a Personality Disorder. I was introduced to this book by my psychiatrist. He thought highly of the book and wanted me to read it as a tool to help me with my mental disorders. I enjoyed the book, found it helpful and wanted it more accessible, so I purchased the audio copy.

    I think this book would be helpful for anyone diagnosed or otherwise involved with someone with OCD or OCPD; such as a physician, nurse, anyone in the mental health field or a loved one.

    "pushy and repetitive"

    "Practical but..."

    it's practical, but I wish it also taught how to identify when a thought is obsessive

    "Book based on research and science"

    I've watched Jeffrey M. Schwartz enthusiastic talks before and this listen doesn't disappoint in that regard. He sounds like he is passionately trying to sell you smth :)

    This book's four steps in fighting OCD are priceless. The methods are based on research and science. However, the book is only 1 hr and 38 mins, but yet at times contains repetitive material. This is also true with Schwartz's talks. Maybe he just tries to reinforce important ideas. I feel like it could have been easily a booklet or cheat-sheet for fighting OCD.
