This ended up being a "self hatred" book. ("Disappointment" doesn't cover what I feel about this book. It's downright revolting.) The authors' premise seems to be: Every individual trait of the victim/partner of the sex addict, and everything that he or she has ever felt, or thought, or done, is not only incorrect, but is BAD and WRONG. What's more, that's unchangeable. The only way to "heal" and "recover" is to accept that the addict has every right to do what he/she does, and treat you the way he/she does. Not only can you not make the addict change, but you shouldn't *want* him or her to do so! You really need to accept that it is, at this time, and, in fact, has always been, YOUR FAULT THAT THE ADDICT IS AN ADDICT. If you (and your sick, twisted family) weren't so completely screwed up, and if you weren't so thoroughly (albeit unconsciously and instinctively) manipulative, then you, the partner of the addict, would have long since caused the addict to have such a happy and balanced life that the addict wouldn't *need* to be an addict anymore.Read more ›
