Stuff: Compulsive Hoarding and the Meaning of Things

by Randy O. Frost & Gail Steketee

I need to make a confession: I am fascinated by hoarders. I frequently tune into television shows about hoarding. My interest began when I first visited a hoarder’s home. It was disturbing and fascinating at the same time.

Anyway, this is a book about hoarding. The authors introduce us to different hoarders and their penchant for collecting and keeping things. All in all, there’s nothing really groundbreaking here. The sketches of the hoarders are too brief, so it’s not really engrossing reading material.

Still, this is a breezy introduction to hoarders and their worlds.
