About Codependent No More by Melody Beattie.

Codependent No More was the debut book of bes-tselling author Melody Beattie. Originally published in 1986 by the Hazelden Foundation, Beattie's book became a phenomenon of the self-help movement, selling over eight million copies, six million of them in the United States.

According to Bettie, codependency in relationships results from our desire to rescue people. She believes that this desire is counter-productive, and that our efforts to rescue people might actually do more harm than good, both for ourselves and our loved ones.

Summary, not the book itself

Thought I was getting the book itself, but this is just a summary. As far as summaries go though, it distilled a lengthy book down to the bare minimum. Good for use in school or if one only wanted to understand the core issues discussed - yet, not seemingly sufficient for one wishing to understand the subject matter to a deeper and more meaningful extent.

Sloppy editing

Fix the edit around 2:22. Phrase repeated twice. At only 26 minutes long, it's hard to believe this was missed.

eh

no actual techniques were given to eliminate codependency etc. basically just a think about your own behaviors and identify what you're doing to promote the situation and identify what triggers the response. I feel like although, that's a mindful way of going about it...there's enormous room for error and long term confusion.
