For some people this may be a possibility but for others it is not because the parent is too narcissistic or abusive to deal with and the book offers surprisingly little in the way of advice on that topic.
If you are dealing with a truly narcissistic/abusive parent and you feel that you need to cut ties find a different book. If you are in the throes of re-negotiating your relationship with your parent and you want a book to give you strength in possibly making a decision to cut ties, find a different book.
If your main goal is repair the relationship or make it work than this would be a good choice for you.
I gave it four stars because there were two chapters I skipped because it didn't apply to me. However, this author answered all of my questions and helped me make one of the most important decisions of my life. A decision that can't be made lightly and can't take back. I can already see the benefits of my decisions to cut loose from my unhealthy ties to my family member. My husband and children immediately positively responded to the changes within me. My sense of humor has returned. I'm enjoying the hobbies/interests that I was discouraged to do by my parents. I am happily motivated again to tackle the things that I was avoiding for so long. Life is no longer passing me by and I feel like this is just the beginning.
I know it sounds cliche but this book really did save my life.
