Basic Info Found for Free on the Internet

By reading this book you'll learning the meaning of hoarding, basic reasons some people hoard, and one short quick chapter of how to help or "fix the problem".
I already found all this info on the web and was looking for insight, which this book did not provide.
Also, it feel a for specific to Level 2 hoarders and above.
For those whose homes are tidy but have some hoarding in extra rooms, this book is not for you! This is directed at more extreme hoarding.
The price was low so I guess it's priced properly for the content but just do some Google searches and you'll learn the same!!
I typically do not comment on the reader, but man did he sound robotic!!!

I know some people

Some of my family members have a bit of a hoarding mentality, and it's not so bad as in "extreme hoarders" that TV show, but the concepts behind it are recognizable. I think it's a very common problem, even when it's not that extreme. This book was helpful.

Hoarding is a serious problem

Just like rats, we humans want to be safe for the winter, and we hoard, maybe more like squirrels, our stuff. But stuff doesn't feed you. It's useless lying around. Good insights.

Bad choice

Save your money.$$ Not worth using my free credit. No substance, sounds like a school paper.

I recognize these things

I know some hoarders myself and a lot of these things become clear as glass. I think it's a helpful guide for anyone who is too materialistic at times.
