A very interesting and academic look at compulsive hoarding. Never felt exploitative or belittling. The author did a great job of objectively presenting the cases while also showing a deep compassion to those suffering with this illness. ( )

Quite a remarkable book, with fascinating cases studies. The book soon starts with one, Irene, who is "extraordinarily articulate and insightful" who attended grauate school for library science!!!! "She had no problem categorizing, cataloging, and organizing library materials, as long as they did not belong to her." (p. 39). ( )

Adult nonfiction. Like a really long episode of "hoarders" but with extended commercial breaks full of psycho-analysis. ( )

This gets into the why of hoarding. Very readable. Thumbs up! ( )

As someone who grew up with a hoarder parent, this book was particularly interesting to read. The authors, a psychiatrist and a social worker, interviewed many hoarders, their long-suffering family and friends. They discuss some historical cases of hoarding, examine various styles and reasonings behind hoarding, such as collecting, foraging, and rescuing. Some of the interviewees are aware that they have a problem with their collections covering all the surfaces in their homes, while others proudly show their collections to the authors. In the first chapter, hoarding is acknowledged to be “composed of a number of discrete factors, some well hidden and expected. But the most obvious factor was the simple problem of accumulation.” They discuss findings from their own interactions — that a sense of emotional attachment drives many hoarders.

The thing that fascinated me the most about this book was that I found myself drawn along into some of the hoarders’ reasoning before realizing that was probably the same path they traveled. I have been guilty of stockpiling, of keeping pieces of something that might be useful later, of storing away scraps of newspapers and magazines; yet this book takes a deeper look at the abnormal extension of these seemingly harmless behaviors, as well as looking at some of the medical research which has been trying to explain why this happens.

Brain scan studies have added additional information about what is happening in the brains of people who hoard. ..In particular hoarders had lower metabolic rates in the anterior cingulate cortex, one region responsible for motivation, focused attention, error detection & decision making.
Objects in a hoard may appear to be without value to an observer, but someone with a hoarding problem would hardly describe them as worthless.
When hoarding causes distress or impairs one's ability to perform basic functions, it has crossed the line into pathology.
Little thought is given to the cost of keeping things or the benefit of getting rid of them.
Disorganization makes what would otherwise be a gift into a seriously problematic, dangerous, and sometimes deadly affliction.
