    It is estimated that as many as 34 million people grew up in alcoholic homes. But what about the rest of us? What about families that had no alcoholism, but did have perfectionism, workaholism, compulsive overeating, intimacy problems, depression, problems in expressing feelings, plus all the other personality traits that can produce a family system much like an alcoholic one? Countless millions of us struggle with these kinds of dysfunctions every day, and until very recently we struggled alone.

    Any additional comments?

    I identified incredibly with their stories. Their observations and thoughts allowed me to recognize many aspects of my childhood as abusive and heavily dysfunctional. I had a lot of anger and resentment for what felt like a lost childhood from absentee parents but had trouble identifying how exactly I experienced the abuse. This book allowed me to identify the abuse and gave me much needed confirmation of my feelings. Thank you
