    Basically, that book made me "not" wanna end if i may say, or in other words destroy any kind of a "somewhat toxic" relationship with ppl i respect and like but are co-dependent, i got this Ahaa moment and "ok so thats why!, now i understand" now i know why some guy are literally a magnet for narcissistic girls and gold-diggers and yet, they cannot escape the latter's jaws, like its hard. the fact that they are men and happen to be friends of mine, and see them literally grow poor and really stressed and cannot man up and leave this toxic relationship, because they are being sucked dry, it made me wanna actually not wanna be with those guys! i mean its fine to a certain degree, but when its too much its just sad.

    It did not take me long to realise that here we have a book of a thrown-together-pseudo-diagnosis that just about seems to fit anyone, it just depended on how you stretched it. What surprised me was that a person with a Ph.D had enough time to 'waste' on putting this 'slush' together. What I did appreciate is that the author made it clear that Codependency is not a classified diagnosis, which brings me to the very important point of family. I do not know whether you have a different view about what family means in your Western world compared to what family means in our Western world, but reading what this author had to say it appeared that there was not much love lost, or supposed to be, between your families over there; it was seen as codependency, which was unhealthy. Around here we call it family being there for each other when no one else cares whether you live or die, it goes something like this 'blood is thicker than water'. We call it by its original name: idiom.

    Clear, insightful understanding of codependency. Easy read. Highly recommend to anyone exploring how to change their life and heal the powerful pull of codependency.

    A comprehensive guide to codependency was long overdue and I am glad to see it has finally arrived. The Everything Guide to Codependency is written in plain, easy-to-understand language; you need not have a background in psychology to understand it but neither does Dr. Sowle talk down to her readers. She explains the history of codependency as a diagnosis, tells how to recognize it, and where to seek help to overcome it. She even includes exercises for working through your own issues if you don't want or cannot afford therapy. I can honestly say this book made a difference in my life--for the better.

    I really never understood what codependency was until I read this book. I thought it related primarily to people living with alcoholics. This book's many examples helped me understand codependency in everyday life and, more specifically, in my ownlife. The message here to me is that once I really understand what's going on, I can choose to change the situation. That seems healthy to me. Dr. Sowle explains concepts clearly and positively. I hope she writes more books.

    This book lives up to its title. Not only is codependence explained in understandable language, but actual examples accompany each point the author is making. You can tell Jennifer Sowle has years of practical experience and is not the least bit stuffy. Especially interesting is how she mimics actual therapy sessions, so that the reader can see how one type of professional might approach codependency as compared to another. I simply can't imagine anyone-- no matter her/his background-- reading this book and not learning something meaningful and useful.
