Revised and Updated With Over 600,000 Copies Sold Pia Mellody creates a framework for identifying codependent thinking, emotions and behaviour and provides an effective approach to recovery.

This is a good eye-opener to what may have caused codependence in your life, but it's light on the dealing with it end of things. Also, if you're an atheist, you may feel stranded because you don't believe in God or a "higher power", which, she argues is part of the disease. So you're hosed two ways if you just can't force yourself to believe in something you can't.

The writing rambles and seems random. It seems more about what she feels compelled to talk about at that moment rather than an organized, planned structure. Not that this is a literary work to be analyzed for structure, but it does make it heavy on some topics and light on others. ( )
