I loved the book, it made perfect sense to me specially. I could really connect with the person author was describing.

I skipped to the part about Church Hurt and worked my way back wards. This book is awesome for church people. I continue to read this book and discover new things in between readings. It helped me figure out a few things and it may help you too. It's definitely a good book to have in your collection.

I would recommend this to anyone in a relationship or a family. It is so easy to fall into dysfunctional patterns. I like this book because the author refers to many relationship books from other authors.

This book changed my life. If you suspect that you have co-dependent tendencies or are in a co-dependent relationship, read this book first!
