It wasn't so bad as to not want to finish it (it took me about 2 hours to read it cover to cover over 2 days), but I will most likely be donating this book to our local library the next time I visit there as I won't be reading it again. There are probably better books out that address this condition than this one.
I highly recommend this book to others in my situation, not just the addict. I clearly have codependent issues as well. It gets a bit deep in spots with psycho therapy speak, but you get the gist of the message. I had several "ah, ha" moments.
I would recommend this book to anyone involved with sexual abuse therapy, whether as a victim, offender, or therapist. In light of a recent announcement regarding pornography not being harmful, the sociologists who ran that study should also take a close look at this material.
