About the Author

Beattie was a struggling single parent of two children and freelance author and journalist cranking out stories for a small-town daily newspaper in 1986 when she came up with a book idea. She wanted to write a book about what happens to people when they love someone who is addicted to alcohol and other drugs."There were many books out there about how to help an addict or alcoholic. Nobody was talking about how an addict impacts the lives of the people around him or her, and how crazy you can become when you love someone who is addicted," Beattie said. "Even though I was sober, I didn't know how crazy I could get until it happened to me." Twenty publishers turned down Beattie's book proposal. "It's a good idea, but we don't think there's that many codependents out there," they wrote back.Hazelden, however, a treatment center and recovery publisher based in Minnesota, saw a need for the book. The publisher understood how families of alcoholics suffer and believed Beattie's book idea would help people. Beattie marched to the welfare department, asked for enough financial help to make it through the three months it would take her to write the book, then locked herself in a basement office and cranked out Codependent No More. Codependent No More has now sold 3.5 million copies. Beattie has since written nine more books, five for major publishing houses on the east and west coasts. She relocated from Minnesota to California, and she has long-since paid back the welfare department. Beattie has appeared in the pages of Newsweek and People and has been a regular guest on Geraldo and Oprah. Playing It By Heart is Beattie's first original book for Hazelden since 1990; the book is a return to her recovery roots that first brought her national recognition.

I love this book! As I've been going through a personal crisis, I have been reading various books and this one has hit home for me. Each chapter that I read seems to speak directly to me with concise but uplifting words. I recommend this book to anyone who is struggling with their faith and is looking for support.

The author gives real life examples for when the particular "Value" is applicable. Then she gives us Application, Challenges we may face, personal Inventory Focus, Action to take, Gratitude Focus for the value and finishes with a Prayer. These don't need to be done one week at a time. Use any that may apply at any time. In fact, I could hardly stop reading and learning. I not only get great personal insight and results from these meditations I also lead a meditation group weekly and occasionally bring these ideas to the floor with very good results for the members as well. Thank you Melody.

I love this daily meditation book by Melody Beattie (highly recommend all of her work) because there is a different theme for each week. It helps me to focus all week on a topic I need to put into action. I also read her daily messages in her "Language of Letting Go" book. They are a nice complement to each other.

This book can be read a day at a time, used for weekly reading or read just about however you want to use it. I prefer using the content at the first of each week and the full week (chapter), concentrating on implementing the thoughts and suggestions for that week and then moving on to another week, not necessarily in a particular order. The content inspires me to be a more content, let go of situations and be less focused on bringing about the outcome I think is best-a new way of thinking for me. Very helpful.

Most days Meditations hits me right where I am. It targets my inherent weaknesses and causes me to self-evaluate and change course (at least for that day--because the next day I seem to need the cousin of the previous article).
These reflections are short, which is good, and helpful whether or not you are a Christian (I am). I have bought several others as gifts.

Melody Beattie is quite profound when she utilizes 12 Step concepts. I think she revolutionized our outlook on Codependency. She is less impressive when she drifts into New Age Metaphysics. THIS book, however is a gem. Once we get out of trouble (crisis, addiction, ennui...), what do we do next? Bounce along, or try to keep growing? "52 Weeks of Conscious Contact" helps us to continue in our spiritual development.

I've been a fan of Melody Beattie's books for many years. Her uncomplicated, warm voice has often been a port in my stormy recovery from CoDa, ACA and substance abuse issues. This journal has been helpful as a weekly/daily study tool, or sometimes I just play roulette with it, randomly opening to a page to receive a message that I need that in that moment. In any event, I always receive a healing meditation.

I read this book when going through divorce, going through grieving, and with losing a relationship.It is a wonderful warm and practical guide to getting clear and on track. Lifts you spirits too. I was living with an alcoholic for years so needed to relearn trusting my own values, not someone else's. She helps with that process.
