Buried in Treasures: Help for Compulsive Acquiring, Saving, and Hoarding
Written to the person with hoarding issues, but with plenty of side-bars written to concerned friends and family. The techniques and steps in this book have evolved from on-going studies the three psychologists/authors have conducted and provides the reader with insight into the mind of the person who hoards, and hopefully, understanding and compassion around this issue.
