Can't. Just. Stop.: An Investigation of Compulsions

Sharon Begley

Begley’s book is the first of its kind to examine compulsive behaviors, both mild (hanging a tea towel just so) and extreme (obsessive compulsive disorder, hoarding, exercise addiction, even compulsions to do good). Begley argues that while all forms of compulsion look incredibly different, they are actually all coping responses to varying degrees of anxiety. With a focus on personal stories, Begley explores the brain science behind compulsion and how we can realistically overcome it.
