    "A must read!"

    This is the first of four books written my Melody Beattie on codependency. I have read and studied them multiple times because each time I listen to any of her books, just the right thing becomes revealed to me just when it is of great relevancy to live a happier, healthier, more productive life.

    "I love this book"

    I recommend this book to all people who are on the other side of the mirror of narcissist, psychos, borderlines, addicts. Anyone who has to recover for losing himself in favor of another.

    "Huge help!"

    I can't thank Melody Beattie enough. After years of suffering but never knowing what was wrong with me, I finally have an insight. Thank you for the advice. As well as the fire I needed to get going and get right with myself and God.

    "Great starter book on Co-Dependence"

    I was given another book to read from a friend that thought I might be co-dependent. It wasn't until I got to their treatment chapters 90% of the way through that I started to have doubts.
    This book gets right to it. What you are likely to be doing if you are, but more importantly what you are likely to be thinking and feeling. That's when I became sure that this wasn't me. However, I noticed I had a LOT of co-dependence around me. It is helping me help myself and them as well. Felt everything from understanding to outright horror with what is in these pages. Definitely recommend the read/listen.

    Story
    "Every mother, wife, woman should own a copy"
    What did you like most about Codependent No More?

    This book was recommended to me by a counselor while I was suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. It is one woman's manual to overcoming struggles and although the book has a heavy emphasis on dealing with alcoholics, and people with dependency issues, something that was not necessarily true for me, it taught me a massive amount about my own thought process and really how I bet myself up way too much mentally.It genuinely changed me for the better and made me feel understood and more aware of my strengths.I purchased the audio version as I really did not feel like reading some "self help" crap, if I'm honest. However I think I made the right choice, the narrator is perfect and I have listened to some chapters over and over.I recommend this if you ever feel your kindness is taken advantage of, you feel under appreciated, you say yes to things because you feel guilty saying no or you have any sort of hurtful, or dysfunctional relationships in your life,You will finally understand everything,


    What did you like best about this story?

    It is written in a non-preachy way, it is not condescending and unlike other self help books, this can sometimes make you mad, but at yourself. It took me on a journey I will never forget.


    Which character – as performed by Christina Moore – was your favourite?

    Christina Moore is excellent. It feels like a chat rather than someone reading to you, I cannot recommend her highly enough


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, but it is a book you will ALWAYS go back to


    Any additional comments?

    If your in doubt, but other books are telling you the same old positive thinking diatribe..I cant emphasize enough, this book is a massive seller for a reason, and its one you will pass on

    "Very good for recovery"
    What did you like most about Codependent No More?

    For me, personally, this (audio)book is one of the best I have listened to (read) recently. It not only points out to eventual causes of the disfunction but also to possible ways of recovering from it.


    Have you listened to any of Christina Moore’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Very good reading style.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Many moments: couple of them are "feel what you feel", about anger, grief, 12 Step work and other


    Any additional comments?

    Genuinly, "high" on my priority list.

    "MISS LEADING"

    I thought that this book was to over published, she does not have a PHD IN PSYCHOLOGY AND FOUND SOME SENTENCES REPEATABLE . ITS OKAY FOR THE LIGHT READER . BUT ITS NOT FOR EVERYONE. SURE IT WILL HELP PEOPLE IN SIMULATIVE CIRCUMSTANCES. ONLY GOT A LITTLE OUT OF IT MYSELF. SORRY....
