Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Codependency, according to Beattie ( Beyond Codependency ), is an addictive behavior pattern in which a person "lets another's behavior affect him or her, and . . . is obsessed with controlling that person's behavior." These essays are directed at anyone caught in such a relationship: effectively they form a "greatest hits" collection of Hazelden codependency self-help pamphlets. Beattie's piece discusses relapses into codependency, which she calls "recycling." Schneider ( Back from Betrayal ) provides insights into how to apply 12-step recovery programs, like Al-Anon and Alcoholics Anonymous, to codependency. Hough and Hardy ( Against The Wall: Men's Reality in a Codependent Culture ) contribute a thoughtful article on how societal norms make codependency appear a female problem when, in reality, its symptoms are different in men and in women. Despite the abundance of checklists, case histories and personal stories, this volume is burdened by having to offer generalized advice to readers with specific problems.

This intriguing and inspirational book provides uplifting encouragement to all who have taken two steps forward and one step backward in recovery from codependency. What makes this item great is the collection of readings from the leading authorities on how to become interdependent. The contributors give realistic, helpful suggestions and insights from their own personal experiences that will reorient the reader from a slip up, back to productive behavior in learning how to really take care of oneself first. Such a variety of ideas also allows for a reexamination of one's own actions from many different angles in order to become the most positive and responsible individual possible. As a result, the book can broaden one's horizons along the road of recovery.

This book has some interesting articles, however it does not tell one how to realize the goals of the title.

I picked up this book and was surprised at the breadth and depth of insight. The authors are all well-respected in the field of psychology, mental health, and recovery. There are excerpts from people who know what they are talking about and share from their hearts, not just their brains. A terrific resource for people needing inspiration and blessings on their journey to spiritual and mental wholeness.
