I read this book because my therapist recommended it and it's wonderful. This book really helped me understand the covert incest/codependent relationship I had with both of my parents when I was growing up, and also really helped clarify how this relationship sabataged my romantic relationships as a teen and young adult. After learning these things and working with my therapist I was able to resolve some of these issues and have fulfilling relationships. I'm now happily married.
