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

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A compassionate, well-written book about the psychology, compulsions, and distress of hoarders. Contains detailed, fascinating narration of some cases, and interviews with people afflicted with this disorder. The first case presented is the heartbreaking tale of the Collyer brothers, who died surrounded by 140 tons of their hoarded items. The tale hooks you and pulls you in. Good read.
