This is one of the best books I've ever read. I learned that what I thought was depression and anxiety was really the GUILT I had refused to admit or look at. I love the way the information and chapters are set up; the writing seemed to flow effortlessly at an easy to understand pace--although I took several breaks to jot down my new insights and emerging memories. This book is the perfect read for the consummate CARETAKER who finds caretaking a deep part of his or her nature, but wants to know how to balance it with self-care and living one's own life. The metaphoric stories are priceless and can change your ideas about what a "good person" really is. I recommend this book highly--it changed my life.

I found myself in this book in ways that surprised me. But when I did find myself, I just felt relieved and unburdened myself of some stuff I was carrying around. This is a easy read - but deceptively insightful, and it covers just about everything....holiday guilt... does that ever ring a bell! I recommend this for anyone that wants to look at their stuff and understand it better - maybe some good changes will follow.

This is a very good book for understanding the reasons you develop the guilt you have and gives help in figuring out how to over come the guilt. It says guilt can make you ill, and I can vouch for that. Maybe learning how to deal with the guilt will help the illnesses.

In a very easy to read and understand manner, the author explores guilty feelings and when these guilty feelings are detrimental to our health. I learned how to distinguish the good guilt from the toxic guilt. I am ready to re-read this very useful book!

I feel this book is very applicable to many many of us who struggle with this codependent issue of blaming ourselves too frequently for other people's actions. It is a to-the-point approach which covers so many areas of our lives with a reader friendly format. I will keep this book out to revisit regularly. I bought 2 extra copies to give to friends.

Susan Carrell's Escaping Toxic Guilt has helped me to make sense of tense confrontations and instances of feeling trapped in my own life and in what others have told me about theirs. It has only been about a week since I finished reading it. Nevertheless, I have referred to it in a e-mail to a friend (for the description of Forgiveness on pages 227-229) and have ordered a second copy to send to a friend. There is overlap between the steps for escaping guilt's toxicity given here and the steps for finding ones direction in any situation that make this book universally helpful.
The organization is easy to follow. The stories illustrate the points being made. The personal note is struck just often enough, and does add weight and authenticity.

The analogy of the fences made the $2 kindle deal so worth it. Loved the stories and examples. You could tell the author has seen a lot of situations, and she does a great job distilling it down. The 5 steps were great, exactly what I was looking for in a book on overcoming guilt.

"Toxic Guilt" is a clear, practical approach to understanding ourselves whether you are in some situation or just want to do some "housekeeping". Dealing with a variety of scenarios, it is written in a straight forward, step by step, logical approach making concepts clear and understandable. There is no "foo foo"ness in the text which allows the concepts and ideas to "ring a bell". I highly recommend it
