Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a condition that affects millions of people worldwide, afflicting its sufferers with obsessive thoughts and fears, and enslaving them to compulsive behaviours with which they strive to cope.

This positive self-help guide helps readers understand OCD and the various treatment options available to them, and uses real-life examples, easy-to-use tools, and practical strategies to enable them to reclaim their lives.

By initially laying the groundwork to help readers understand their condition, this book leads them through the decisions they will have to make about treatment, offering easy-to-use tools for preparing and carrying out their self-help program. By focusing on looking differently at life and relationships, following a healthy lifestyle and the practice of regular relaxation, this book is a practical guide to preventing relapse, and re-claiming an uninhibited life.Dr. Jan van Niekerk is a Clinical Psychologist and resides in Cambridge, UK.

Joe Copp is the investigator of a hit and run murder case. He comes across corrupt politicians, inefficient police and pimps who trade women for profit and pleasure.
Here, in his most exciting outing to date, Joe Copp finds himself recovering from a three week bout of partial amnesia after a perp almost blew him away with his own gun. Though his doctors have assured the cobwebs would soon dissolve, a more serious problem has arisen: it seems that during the three lost weeks he married a lady who subsequently turned up dead in Los Angeles. Now the police are trying to pin the murder on her unsuspecting, short-term widower, Joe Copp. While being pursued by the L.A.P.D. and an unknown assailant, Copp's search for answers to what happened and why leads him to the Mammoth mountain resort in northern California, where his decidedly ill-fated "romance" apparently began. Copp in Shock takes Joe to the edge of insanity as he careens toward the lethal truth. It is his darkest hour, and also his finest triumph in a riveting story of a man at war with his own mind and those who would eliminate him.
In this fourth Copp adventure, a plea for help from a mysterious client plunges Copp into the lower depths of legitimate theater. It all begins innocently enough, except that Copp cannot quite identify his client -- it seems that the entire cast of a dinner theater production of "Man of La Mancha" may have chipped in to hire him. The fast pace of events threatens to overwhelm Copp in a maze of government agents, organized crime figures and kinky-inclined politicians as it becomes evident that Copp is his own client in a struggle to take control of the case and learn the truth before he takes the big fall. Copp is truly "in the dark" until the last bloody act. And not even he can know who will be around to answer the final curtain call.
Copp's new case pulls him into the backlots of Hollywood, behind the glamorous facade of the movie industry, where the subjects of a stake-out begin dying, one by one. But before Copp can decipher the case and take it to the Los Angeles police, an undercover narcotics officer is nearly killed and Copp becomes an accomplice to murder. Thereafter Copp quickly finds himself in a real-life Hollywood movie scenario, running amok through the corporate halls and back lots in search of the gaudiest, gamiest game in which sudden death becomes the favorite plot device for making the scene. Copp on Fire is Don Pendleton's most ambitious, rewarding and exciting novel to date-a smashing return-engagement by one of the most original and compelling new characters in recent crime fiction. DON PENDLETON is the author of "The Executioner" series featuring Mack Bolan, which has sold some sixty million copies to date.

FIRST TIME IN PAPERBACK! DEADLY HOMECOMING Kenny Blacklaws returned to the East Texas town of Copper Bluffs nine years after the brutal murder of his stepfather, only to find himself smack dab in the middle of a war with cutthroat rustlers. But that wasn't his only problem. His return also awakened the feelings of Corsica, the beautiful woman his stepbrother had claimed as his own. It's not long at all before just about everyone in Copper Bluffs is itching to see Kenny dead-just like his stepfather. EDITOR'S NOTE An earlier edition of this Western novel concerned with the hide trade in the Texas Gulf region appeared in a condensed magazine version in Zane Grey's Western Magazine under the title, "The Hide Rustlers." Certain scenes, vital to the author's intentions and a reader's understanding of the actions of the characters, were excised from this condensed version. Subsequently, a book version was published under the same title, but it retained the same editorial omissions. For this new edition, those scenes have been restored, based on the author's original typescript, so that now Copper Bluffs appears for the first time with the title and in the form the author originally intended.

On JUNE 1, 1956, the New York Times broke a story that captured the imagination of the world. Another Dead Sea Scroll had been found, unlike any before it, describing unimaginable treasures worth untold billions buried in the hills east of Jerusalem and under the Holy City itself. In the years that followed, scholars came to believe that THE COPPER SCROLL COULD BE HISTORY'S GREATEST TREASURE MAP, one that could not only lead to the treasures but pave the way to the building of the Third Jewish Temple. But the scroll's code has never been broken, and experts from all sides warn that any effort by Israel to rebuild their Temple in Jerusalem would unleash a war of biblical proportions. Now, exactly fifty years after the Copper Scroll was unveiled, New York Times best-selling author Joel C. Rosenberg takes you on his most exciting and heart-pounding ride yet. SADDAM HUSSEIN IS GONE. YASSER ARAFAT IS DEAD. A NEW IRAQ IS RISING. Now White House advisors Jon Bennett and Erin McCoy find themselves facing a terrifying new threat triggered by an ancient mystery.

Could the cautious single father and the reckless beauty be cops... and lovers?
