Stuff: Compulsive Hoarding and the Meaning of Things by Randy O. Frost and Gail Steketee


Two psychologists who specialize in OCD, hoarding, etc., interview and attempt to treat hoarders and understand why they collect what they collect.

“Hoarders” and “Hoarding: Buried Alive” in book form. Even touches briefly on childhood hoarding and animal hoarding.


Because I’m addicted to the TV shows, I found this book fun to read. The cases were fascinating and really gave insight on how hoarders went about making decisions. I feel this is a good resource for research papers, or if hoarding interests you, an interesting read.
