    2. It really is amazing how different people are. Most people think our differences come from our opinions, but it is so much more. This book allows us to see through the eyes of someone that has OCD and tries to help himself. James, had a severe OCD, he also experience some quite stressful events in his life, this turns him into a total weirdo. The book starts with his admittance to a stay-in clinic for helping people with OCD. From the moment he gets out of the cab his treatment starts and it has [...]

    3. Hmmm. An odd book whch i feel in some ways never got to where it was going.I never really found the main character or understood the basic premise of his OCD.The book seemed essentially rather random.

    4. I had quite a high hope for this book and it turned out to be gibberish! It seemed the writer never really understood his OCD and I was left wondering why he hadn't been able to work on it on his own with a terapist when he seemed to have no problems getting better very fast. I was also left wondering why on earth I had to read about his atraction to Asian women and why he used almost all his time in the program hitting on them!? Sure it was a little bit funny in the beginning and his character [...]

    5. James Bailey and I were My Space friends with a common interest in writing. He read some of my short stories and wrote to me, suggesting I read his novel. So I went out and tracked it down in a small bookstore. It's a remarkable book in that it is a first hand look at OCD or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and even more remarkable for never getting maudlin or soliciting sympathy. Bailey's style is to give a matter of fact account of how the disorder 'ordered' his life and how he came to terms with [...]

    6. I read it but I can not say that I enjoyed it. I did not appreciate its discriminating and sometimes racist comments and thought patterns. I chose Man, Interrupted because of its title attracting my attention and reminding me of Girl Interrupted. If it had a different title I would never had read it and been saved the pain. If only I could shake the habit of reading something through just because I have started it!

    11. Seems more about narcissism. I read right through it; it's light reading and pretty funny. Good assurance for the hypochondriacs out there that they don't suffer from OCD.

    12. This was pretty bad, although so bad it was slightly entertaining. The main character has some strange fascination with Mel Brooks and Asian girls.
