    Based on the public television series of the same name, Bradshaw On: The Family is John Bradshaw's seminal work on the dynamics of families that has sold more than a million copies since its original publication in 1988. Here, you will discover the cause of emotionally impaired families. You will learn how unhealthy rules of behavior are passed down from parents to children, and the destructive effect this process has on our society.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    If this is your only Bradshaw listen, maybe you'll get what you need, but I much preferred Healing the Shame that Binds You and the shorter Homecoming. There are also some upsetting family stories in this, so it's pretty heavy subject matter and parts are hard to hear. I don't know if I necessarily needed to hear THAT many tough stories.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Had a more natural and less formal way of speaking.

    John Bradshaw provides a new way to understand our most crucial relationships: with parents and children, with friends and co-workers, with ourselves, and with God. Combining live audio footage from the Creating Love workshop and exclusive studio material that offers the tools to help listeners bring hope and new direction to their lives, he shows us how we have been literally "entranced" by past experiences of counterfeit love, how we can break these destructive patterns, and how we can open ourselves to the soul-building work of real love.

    Another helpful John Bradshaw book that helps you figure out how your past can impact your present relationships. I love hearing John Bradshaw's enthusiastic voice, but sometimes the sound is a bit tinny and the music sounds like it's on a tape deck. That said, it's still a worthwhile listen if you're more focused on the actual teaching on not on it sounding clean and perfect.

    There's no doubt about it, breakups suck. But in the first few hours or days or weeks that follow, there's one important truth you need to recognize: Some things can't and shouldn't be fixed, especially that loser who dumped you or forced you to dump him.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes, because it helps you feel normal for feeling sad.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The personal stories. Some are truly outrageous. Greg B. is also pretty hilarious with some of his phrasing and comments.


    Was It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken worth the listening time?

    Yes, in small pieces.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a depressing topic, but you'll probably feel better after hearing other people's wacky and sad stories.
