    Must Read for all ACOA

    Sincere, thourough, successful effort to reach out to all ACOA. It felt like she was speaking directly to me. I found this book true, relevent and uplifting. It was hard to put down as I zipped through page after page of clarifying insights, comforting reassurences and practical advice for moving forward. Great place to start for all ACOA and those who love them. Good luck on your journey to recovery!

    A reviewer

    I found it very affirming and gave some good tips for self-help. While I couldn't relate to all of it, as most people's experiences aren't the same, I found enough sections that applied to make it worthwhile reading.

    Great title, no delivery

    A person that suffers life long effects of the ACoA syndrone needs the support and comfort of others in the same boat. Personal stories from the people who experienced it are far more revealing and helpful than case histories and theory from outsiders. This comment is not meant to diminish the need for professional help but to encourage ACoA's to follow their heart, not be led by the nose.

    ACOA Guide

    It is informative and eye-opening read for ACOAs. The author gives a thorough guide for those who seek to move forward from their past.

    Didn't apply to me

    I was intrigued by the title, but unfortunately I could only find one or two items in the book that applied to my life. I am an adult daughter of an alcoholic mother. I couldn't relate to most of what the author discussed, and I'm really glad this wasn't the first book I've read on the subject!
