The Human Magnet Syndrome Audiobook

The Human Magnet Syndrome: Why We Love People Who Hurt Us

Since the dawn of civilization, men and women have been magnetically and irresistibly drawn together into romantic relationships, not so much by what they see, feel and think, but more by invisible forces. When individuals with healthy emotional backgrounds meet, the irresistible love force creates a sustainable, reciprocal and stable relationship. Codependents and emotional manipulators are similarly enveloped in a seductive dreamlike state; however, it will later unfold into a painful seesaw of love, pain, hope and disappointment.

Publisher's Summary

Since the dawn of civilization, men and women have been magnetically and irresistibly drawn together into romantic relationships, not so much by what they see, feel and think, but more by invisible forces. When individuals with healthy emotional backgrounds meet, the irresistible love force creates a sustainable, reciprocal and stable relationship. Codependents and emotional manipulators are similarly enveloped in a seductive dreamlike state; however, it will later unfold into a painful seesaw of love, pain, hope and disappointment. The soul mate of the codependent's dreams will become the emotional manipulator of their nightmares. Listeners of the Human Magnet Syndrome will better understand why they, despite their dreams for true love, find themselves hopelessly and painfully in love with partners who hurt them. This audiobook will guide and inspire both the layman and the professional.

    "Everyone should listen to this book!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I recommend everyone listen to this book. It not only explains personality traits and why one is attracted to another but also explains the generation before and then the effect a personality trait has on their own children. I understood a lot of what I was doing to my own children, thinking I was being a good mom, but enabling them to become either narcissistic or codependent. It was a life changer. I'm listening to it a third time and each time I learn more and more about my actions and how it may effect my children. Please read!

    "Really helped me understand codependency"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Human Magnet Syndrome to be better than the print version?

    I'm not sure - haven't read it in print but I do feel I would've had a harder time feeling as engaged had I read the print version


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Human Magnet Syndrome?

    I remember realizing that the selfish nature of the alcoholic I was involved with was described to a T, meaning that it wasn't just me being critical of them or imagining how badly I was treated which helped me feel that the end of the relationship was truly for the best


    Which character – as performed by Todd Reinhardt – was your favorite?

    N/A


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    A couple of lines made me cry when I realized the person I had invested so heavily in was and never will be capable of returning my affections and that I was giving WAY more than was deserved


    Any additional comments?

    I think this is really helpful resource for anyone struggling with codependency (both platonic and romantic) and needing some logic as a guide. I think breaking it down into psychological contexts can help define and give structure to what otherwise feels like the losing side of emotional warfare.

    "Entertaining truth"

    I used to have problems with narcissists... no more! Read this book and you'll know much of what you need. For more knowledge turn to 2 timothy 3 in the bible.

    "hated this book with a passion."

    author characterises Codependents as weak, submissive and helpless while promoting his disproven theory.

    damaging read, he quoted a lot of outdated data.

    "Dissapointed"

    Human magnet concept well explained, but I think it could have been done in 5 chapters. I was expecting a lot more on practical advice and tools - even if those were to be applied repetatively over many years. I felt left having more insiht into the mechanisms involved but with no tools to change these patterns.

    "An in depth clinical and technical book, but informative"

    I was hoping the book wouldn't be quite so technical and would also offer input as to what to do if you find yourself in a Human Magnetic Relationship. I definitely understand the Human Magnetic Relationship better, but will need to further investigate this phenomenon in order to better understand how to combat my co dependent behaviors. I liked the book, but dos get lost in many of the very technical descriptions.

    "I am so happy I have found this book in audio!"
    What did you like most about The Human Magnet Syndrome?

    I never knew how nurturing and healing knowledge can be. I have firstly watched Ross Rosenberg videos on youtube when I discovered my suffering and toxic relationships were attached to codependency... so i am in this healing path... breaking FREE soul journey! HIGHLY and DEARLY recommend this book. It is clearly written from someone who truly cares... and when we are hurting we need this!
