I had the book in print for years and it's dog-eared pages and highlighted text well, sometimes was really hard to put down and then pick up again. Hearing it was really amazing...so glad this is in audio finally. One AHA moment that I had was the patience or "now" factor...why I must do things or have things "now" this was something I didn't fully get from the written text. I wish all her titles on this topic were in audio.
If you had an alcoholic parent ... i think you should read this book even if you think you don't ... this book awakened me to facts i have never even considered ... it helped me understand so many aspects of my personality and deal with so many of my problems
I have a rather eclectic love of books. I know what I like and I tend not to be a severe critic. If I enjoyed it, it gets 4 or 5 stars.
Although I knew it existed, I somehow missed reading this book throughout the years - It really clarifies the behaviors of children of alcoholics and describes how they came to behave the way they do. It is descriptive and I found myself frequently shaking my head in agreement. Unfortunately, it doesn't offer any solutions to help quell the behaviors, but I can see why it has been such a popular book.
I found the information in this audio book very helpful and informative but the narrator sounded almost robotic. Very hard to listen to at first but got past it.
