Turtles All The Way Down
By John Green
What can I say about this book? It’s amazing! Although fiction when I first read this book I felt like I was reading the most accurate representation of anxiety I had ever read. That is saying a lot considering what I do for a living and all the other readings that I have done; including the DSM definition and diagnosis requirements. John does a fabulous job of explaining anxiety and OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) in a way that is not only easy to understand but also highly relatable.
I recommend this book to everyone who has anxiety and/or wishes to better understand. If I was doing a rating of the book I would rate it a 15/5. It is an easy read; can be triggering depending on where you are at mentally while reading it. Overall it’s amazing; quick and easy to read and you will be glad you spent the time reading it.
