Publisher's Summary

Millions of otherwise rational and mature men and women are driven to self defeating, out-of-control behavior by intense, unfulfilled desire. Millions of others - targets of their obsession - find their lives turned upside down by unwanted attention, harassment, and attempts at coercion.

Acclaimed therapist Dr. Susan Forward offers crucial help to both obsessors and targets. Using vivid case histories, drawn largely from her two decades of practice, Dr. Forward outlines the stage of obsessive love - from romance to rejection, from pursuit to revenge.

In a compassionate exploration of the roots of obsessive love, targets are given practical strategies for assertive communication and self-protection. Obsessors learn proven techniques to reduce their torment and to bring self-destructive behavior under control, allowing for the development of new, healthy relationships.

    "lifechanging read"
    Would you listen to Obsessive Love again? Why?

    Yes, many times. Dr Forward prescribes a very very effective set of exercises to break the habit of obsession. It's worth learning


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

    Yes, and I believe I have listened to it... well in maybe two sittings


    Any additional comments?

    Great insight into people. It's sad that we can misplace our dignity to such an extent. I think we have accepted behaviors in our relationships that could lead to no other result but obsession. We hurt ourselves and each other in culturally condoned ways. I find this book to be a great tool for recognizing it and stopping it.

    Story
    "Revealing and healing"

    This book completely opened my eyes for the first time to what I had been doing over and over in my life. I knew it was a pattern but could never figure out why I was doing it or how to stop. With the help of the words of advice plus the exercises that are given, I do believe there is so much hope that I will not only be able to stop my obsessive behavior with my relationships but I also have hope to someday be comfortable with a normal relationship for which I have never known. I believe working with my therapist and some of the other new and healthy concepts I have been practicing, there is great hope for a better tomorrow. I am grateful for the knowledge this book imparted on me and the narrator is also very convincing and speaks with clarity. I listen to this book a few times a week. Thanks for the great book. I give it 5 stars.
