Publisher's Summary

Is having 'somebody to love' the most important thing in your life? Do you constantly believe that with 'the right man' you would no longer feel depressed or lonely? Are you bored with 'nice guys' who are open, honest, and dependable? If being in love means being in pain, this book was written for you. Therapist Robin Norwood describes loving too much as a pattern of thoughts and behavior, which certain women develop as a response to problems from childhood.

Many women find themselves repeatedly drawn into unhappy and destructive relationships with men. They then struggle to make these doomed relationships work. This best-selling book takes a hard look at how powerfully addictive these unhealthy relationships are - but also gives a very specific program for recovery from the disease of loving too much.

    Story
    "Read it"
    What did you love best about Women Who Love Too Much?

    It helps me examine why I've been attracting the wrong guys and why I keep breaking up with them. This is was like a surgeon doctor that went deep inside my psychological mind, took me back to my childhood, and told me why.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Women Who Love Too Much?

    It describes women who are self-sacrificing too much, only to get a broken heart in return.


    Have you listened to any of Ellen Archer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. I like her voice.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Be selfish by loving yourself first, then be selfless through helping others.

    "how sick are you?"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, informative


    If you’ve listened to books by Robin Norwood before, how does this one compare?

    Na


    Any additional comments?

    While this book is packed with relevant information and insights, it's ultimately a bit of a stretch to view any and all of the relationships on the continuum as pathological.
