THE MAN WHO COULDN’T STOP
DR DAVID ADAM
A Royal Society Event
Ever had a strange urge to jump from a tall building, or steer your car into oncoming traffic? You are not alone. In this captivating fusion of science, history and personal memoir, writer David Adam explores the weird thoughts that exist within every mind, and how they drive millions of us towards obsessions and compulsions. David has suffered from OCD for 20 years, and The Man Who Couldn’t Stop is his unflinchingly honest attempt to understand the condition and his experiences; a book that will challenge thoughts of what is normal, and what is mental illness. Dr Adam is a writer and editor at Nature, one of the world’s top scientific journals.
