    "Still Waiting: Hope for When God Doesn’t Give You What You Want would be a very bad example of the best book on trichotillomania and dermatillomania. This book has nothing to do with the topics that you are interested in as you can probably tell from the title alone. This book is a good one, but would not be suitable based on the topic of interest."

    "As a person who suffers from mental disorders herself, it was sad to read about a person who had a few of the issues herself(skin picking, hair pulling). As the author details what she entailed, I felt the need to want to look at why she was doing it. This book would also be a educational read for anyone who just doesn't understand what people with these disorders goes through because it is something that can't be helped."

    "In Reconstructing Amelia, the stunning debut novel from Kimberly McCreight, Kate's in the middle of the biggest meeting of her career when she gets the telephone call from Grace Hall, her daughter’s exclusive private school in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Amelia has been suspended, effective immediately, and Kate must come get her daughter—now. But Kate’s stress over leaving work quickly turns to panic when she arrives at the school and finds it surrounded by police officers, fire trucks, and an ambulance. By then it’s already too late for Amelia. And for Kate. An academic overachiever despondent over getting caught cheating has jumped to her death. At least that’s the story Grace Hall tells Kate. And clouded as she is by her guilt and grief, it is the one she forces herself to believe. Until she gets an anonymous text: She didn’t jump. Reconstructing Amelia is about secret first loves, old friendships, and an all-girls club steeped in tradition. But, most of all, it’s the story of how far a mother will go to vindicate the memory of a daughter whose life she couldn’t save. Fans of Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl will find Reconstructing Amelia just as gripping and surprising"

    "Impulse Control Disorders is a very good look at the same named diseases. It is an especially good read for the lay person, breaking down the talk so it doesn't sound so much like a medical journal."

    "There is still scant clinical information on trichotillomania. This book fills the need for a full-length cognitive-behavioral treatment manual. The authors share their considerable expertise in treating body-focused repetitive behavior disorders (not only hair-pulling but skin-picking and nail-biting as well) in an accessible, clinically valid reference. This is the first comprehensive, clinical, and empirically-based volume to address these disorders."
