Although I enjoyed the stories, I didn't really get what I was hoping from the book. It really just made go "how" do I get there???
The only piece of practical and applicable advice the volume offers is to join Al-Anon. If you are looking for any other advice on dealing with codependence, look elsewhere. If you are not, you probably won't require the hard-sell that this book offers.
Each chapter features a different person's story, followed by that person's insight/growth. I liked this format to some degree -- I liked reading people's stories -- but about halfway through, I found myself skimming over some of the story portions, in order to get to the "meat," which is where the person learns the lesson. I could've done with a little less story telling, I suppose.
Still, a fine book on codependence. I can always use that.
