A control freak looks for love (women who leave wet teaspoons in sugar bowls need not apply). 'I haven't woken up with a cup of tea by the bed for seven years. It seems such a small thing but it's one of a thousand things I miss about having someone around to take care of me. I have spent my entire adult life getting things the way I want them and all I want now is someone to give it all up for.' Jon Richardson. Is your filing faultless?

Your CDs, apostrophes, cutlery all in the right places? Can you eat a biscuit in the correct way? Then Jon Richardson (single for seven years and counting) could be your ideal man...Living alone in a one bedroom flat in Swindon, 27 year old Jon has had far too much time on his hands to think. In fact to obsess. About almost everything. Jon's obsessive compulsive personality disorder has seen him arrange the coins in his pockets in ascending size and colour code his bookshelves. It takes him less than 90 seconds to locate a receipt for a pair of shoes he bought in 1997.

Over to the filing cabinet and R for receipts, S for shoes. But Jon doesn't want to be like this, in fact he would quite like to share his life with someone. But who could that someone be? Someone like himself, a quarrelsome perfectionist only with breasts and less body hair? Absolutely not. But who exactly is Jon looking for and where will he find her? Faced with a loveless future filled with his own peculiar quirks and perfectionism, Jon sets about his search for The One. The question is, will he mind her keeping the knives to the left of the forks in the cutlery drawer or organising the CDs by genre and not alphabetically?

Listener Opinions

    " Slightly scary how much this book reminded me of myself, but an excellent read nonetheless. Well written, thoughtful and with a wry sense of humour. Highly recommended! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cia | 2/12/2014

    " I'll keep it simple: he ain't as funny in prose as he is on TV. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laura Dobb | 1/29/2014

    " There's depressing and then there is this book. Jon comes across on screen as an OCD sufferer but witty and able to poke fun at himself. His humour and funny remarks are just that...funny, but I found this book very drawn out and repetitive, no thanks Jon, I'll stick to your on screen comedy from now on! However, I hope you and Gemma eventually arrange that date, you never know ;-) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linzi | 1/25/2014

    " Fantastic book! I love Jon Richardson and think he is a brilliant comedian. I was expecting this book to be really funny, just like the man himself, and it didn't disappoint. I really enjoyed reading it. I found myself laughing out loud through out. Jon suffers from really bad OCD and i couldn't help laughing at all the strange habits he has because i do some of them too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom Simpkins | 1/14/2014

    " An excellent and in-depth look into the high strung mind of a brilliant stand-up comedian, the world is cast as bleak albeit mysterious and we are shown through a mere weekend how it is handled and explored by Jon Richardson. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren Ward | 12/21/2013

    " He is one of my favourite comedians and this book did not disappoint! Also makes me feel like I have OCD now, with some of the things he does. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ellie Reynard | 11/28/2013

    " This man's podcasts got me through sixth form. It's a sweet little read, very funny. Worth reading if you are a Richardson fan. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stargazer | 11/22/2013

    " Can't believe he's not a Virgo, his sun is at the beginning of Libra, with its ruler Venus in Virgo. Definitely buy it for a Virgo! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stuart | 9/13/2013

    " I found this a very good read. Given that i read it in 2 days shows this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gia | 8/15/2013

    " I was expecting a very funny book and I got that and also much more that that. It's a very honest book, where Jon Richardson pours all his problems, his "obsessions" and at times it can make you feel quite bad about some things. it's very bittersweet. It's quite a good read, definitely recommend it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hayley | 8/13/2013

    " It was okay. I did find parts of it interesting (particularly since I could empathise with a worrying amount of Richardson's opinions and experiences!) but I thought he laboured his points a little too much, which made it quite dull in parts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny Knight | 7/12/2013

    " Parts of this book are superbly crafted and very thought provoking, whilst others make you think "thank God it's not just me!". Not your typical celeb biog, more a textbook case study for Psychology and Sociology students... Ultimately well written, witty and a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meg | 4/30/2013

    " I have about 60 pages left, and I am starting to drag. This book was great in the beginning- but it's like Wuthering Heights. It must be read in one sitting, or it'll take forever to finish. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ben | 2/21/2013

    " As with The Big Bang Theory TV series, this book strikes a little too close to home for me to love it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leigh Koonce | 8/8/2012

    " Jon Richardson is exceptionally funny in person, so I had high hopes for this book. I wasn't disappointed. Richardson's book is set up as a faux self help program with lots of anecdotes from his own life. Very humorous! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Edel | 6/3/2012

    " Very funny in parts. It really showed his ocd, pedantic side. dragged out a bit in points "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Esther | 4/1/2012

    " Entertaining, sad, infuriating, thought-provoking and laugh out loud funny. Everyone will be able to identify a bit of themselves in the OCD world of Jon Richardson, but hopefully not too much... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Keith | 3/21/2012

    " I find Jon entertaining on TV and in print, but these revelations are a bit worryingly personal. There is some deep wound there, which he denies, but is none-the-less painful to read. It made for an interesting, at times amusing but slightly disturbing read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martin Willoughby | 12/5/2011

    " Funny, thought-provoking and too close to my own way of thinking for comfort. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Louise | 10/13/2011

    " Made me feel less neurotic by comparison. "
