Very helpful for readers who love a person with addictions.
The understanding of the author of the effects of codependency in our lives.
Much easier to move through the book when it is read aloud.
This book was amazing! It was so revealing and helpful!
I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to know more about why they are always being taken advantage of or taking care of everyone.
I love my first book on Audible. The ability to listen to a book while you are driving is wonderful. Only one small problem the beginning and end of a sentence intermittently faded out making it difficult to hear the word the reader was saying. I will continue to be an Audible Book member and look forward listening to more books in the future.
Everything about and in the book was great except the heavy reliance on religion and God for legitimacy. You can take all talk of religion and God out of this book and it would not only be still legitimate, but better, IMHO; even for those people who are religious.
my therapist said I needed to get this book.... I found I was codependent. but this book is supposed to help... all it really does is say "leave everything to god, the great fairy tale in the sky" and only deals with alcoholics and those effected by them.
I'm not saying it doesn't help... just focuses on certain architypes and that's it.
it doesn't really help build a picture of what to do or where to even start for those who aren't in that situation
I liked it very much. Good insights. I could identify. The author shares from real experience, offers hope.
