I found it very difficult to follow the message of this book or get any real help from it. The author indicates there are a number of causes of co-dependency but seems to try to discuss them all at the same time. As a result, I found myself sorting through all of the causes and situations that did not pertain to me to try and find what did. The book would be much better and helpful if each cause, or similar causes, and resulting behaviors were grouped together in one or more chapters and discussed from start to finish.
I highly recommend this book for those considering marriage or looking to heal a bad marriage. However, the abridged version that is available here contains only about 25% of the information in the full print version and what is not in the abridged version is very important information. Buy the full book.
