Clear-eyed and compassionate look at hoarding by the two most prominent experts in the field. In case you think hoarders just need to be barred from their homes while someone else cleans up: That approach is expensive for municipal governments, it's a temporary improvement (after six months, the hoard can be as big as ever), and several times it has caused the hoarder to commit suicide.

The information on children and siblings of hoarders is especially interesting. One positive recent development: Children of hoarders have support groups. Years ago, many children of hoarders believed "I'm the only one who has ever had to deal with this."
