    I bought this book shortly after it came out on the recommendation of a friend. For me it has been the best book I have read on codependency to date. I love the format, and the wealth of information on the subject. I feel the author went above and beyond just describing what codependency is, to giving the reader sound tools to overcome the debilitating effects codependency can have on a person's life. I honestly felt pretty desperate before reading this book, like I was doomed to a so so existence. Reading this and using the different tools has helped me so much. I now feel that by continuing to work the ideas, plans and suggestions in this book, I can really turn my life around. I have already seen an improvement. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that is mired in a codependent lifestyle and is desperate to get their wings and learn what it means to live authentically.

    I love this book!

    I feel this should be mandatory reading for every teenage girl before she begins to make the same mistakes many of us have in our lives.

    This easy to read guide is perfect for the person who might already be involved in an unhealthy relationship and will serve as a guide to those who might be tempted to engage in one at sometime. It could save a lot of future pain.

    I highly recommend this book!

    I purchased this book about one month ago, fell in love with it

    I purchased this book about one month ago, fell in love with it and ended up reading it in about two weeks! Having read nearly every book written on codependcy, I decided to look in the hundreds of books written for 'dummies' which I swore I would never buy because of what I preceive to be a negative connotation in the title.
    And I am SO HAPPY that I did. It is the only book that I've purchased that I actually did the excericises in. For those who have read everything, have gone to every meeting and every therapist who says they understand codependency (and don't), this book is the right choice for you and will probably be the only book you need. I have been battling codependency for decades and I find comfort listening to Darlene's voice, written in her words of insightful instruction. She really speaks to the codependent and provides good and useful tools for recovery. Good luck in your journey.
