I've watched the programme "Hoarders" for some time and I've come to admire the patience and forebearance demonstrated by Matt and his crews. Sometimes they have to remove matter which often is only seen in the cleanups of prison "dirty protests". I found it interesting to read that Matt's grandaunt was a hoarder herself and he was called on by other family members to carry out cleanups of her home. I say cleanups because the lady was not able to stop gathering things. However the mistakes made in her case may have helped Matt and his crews in the long run because he has learnt what not to do. An interesting read because the hoarders are often extremely talented people who for whatever reason have become addicted to stuff and the reason for that needs to be tackled as much as the stuff itself.

I don't have a problem with hoarding, but do tend to "collect" too much stuff and need the occasional prod to declutter - this provides that nudge. It helps you to understand why those with a genuine problem have such difficulty in getting rid of items others may see as junk or unnecessary.

A good quick read. Written in a similar style to the Hoarders programme from which it was derived, it is occasionionally a little confusing. Hopping from one case study to another forward and backward in time takes a but of getting used to, but the author seems a genuinely kind person who has used his own life experiences to help others. Common sense advice on how to help a hoarder in the family without recourse to pseudo psychology.
