A smattering of useful information buried under a ton of fluff and drivel. The concepts are presented in a more understandable and useful manner in other books.

The book is well organized and makes valid points. I couldn't stop highlighting sentences. It will be great to go back and read the highlighted sections - so many powerful statements. There is a chart on page 103 that really characterizes our behaviors. It does it succinctly and so accurately. I used that material for a group discussion and everyone could relate and contribute. I wrote a newsletter article based on one of the 5 things we can't change that was very well received. (http://home.ezezine.com/23_2 - Scroll to Ouch! That Hurts) The principles are sound and easy to follow. In some ways, it's not 'new' material. Yet, the way it's spelled out and organized, it makes it easy to apply immediately. Not easy concepts - just relevant and truthful ones. This book is VERY good for those with co-dependency issues. Clearly, Richo has experience with 12 steps and the attributes of co-dependency. His bulleted list on boundaries is superb - the best I've ever seen to date.
