    "Doesn't It Hurt?: Confessions of Compulsive Hair Pullers is about people that suffer from trichotillomania or uncontrollable hair pulling. Two to four percent of the populations suffer from this disorder which leads to shame and isolation. "

    "This fits to some extent as a memoir about OCD, but it should be noted that it isn't an exhaustive memoir from any one person suffering from the disorder. Instead it's a collection of 15 shorter essays written by people who specifically suffer from trichotillomania, but that is itself often associated with OCD. Interesting read to be sure."

    "This book was so interesting. It's not a subject or book I would automatically think of when searching for a memoir, but I'm glad I did. The stories were very raw and well written and shed light on to something that many people have no idea about. I'm very glad I read this book. "

    "Trichotillomania is a very misunderstood disorder and this collection of essays by sufferers is a great insight. But I'm not sure if it's just women's stories, as all people can be afflicted by this. I know, I have it, too. So I'm not sure if it's the best memoir about womens issues but it's a good novel for it's topic. "

    "Doesn't It Hurt is an interesting collection of essays based on people's experience with hair pulling. It really goes into detail about how it affects their lives and how they cope with this struggle. It really sheds light on the anxiety, depression, and mental torment that some people go through. Overall, it is a great book of essays that you should read!"
