Reviews for Codependent No More & Beyond Codependency by Melody Beattie (1997-03-02):

I feel like it was written about me
This book has saved my life. I feel like it was written about me, for me. If things feel off in your life, take a moment to read this. Guaranteed you will be amazed and it will help no matter what your situation is. All of us, I believe, have a level of co-dependency.... I had no idea I was co-dependent until I picked up this book, which was suggested by a friend. Game changer....

So ...
My girlfriend wanted me to buy this book to work on our relationship, so I did. Then we broke up, which made me happier than the book ever did. Now I'm codependent no more!

Don't bother with this book
Boring and not helpful (practical) at all.

Good read for lessons on how to manipulate people into loving you
This is an amazing book I would recommend this book to anyone regardless of what kind of relationship you're in. It really teaches you how you have to love yourself before you attempt to do certain things to make someone else love you. It has some hard life lessons but I think it's definitely worth reading. Again, regardless of the kind of relationship you are in you really will learn how to take stock of your life and love you first instead of trying to coerce someone else's into loving you.

Life changing results.
I read this book when I was divorcing my husband after 30 years of marriage. At that time I felt as if everything in life was a struggle, and chronic worry, anger and fear was a way of life I thought was normal. This book truly changed my life. In many ways it is a precursor to the cognitive therapy of today. I felt as if the author wrote this book for me, as my thought processes were exactly as she described those of the co-dependent person. Following the simple steps on detachment, learning how not to automatically have knee-jerk reactions to every situation, and virtually everything in this book beginning to end, I discovered that by taking care of myself, truly being responsible for my own well being, I could be a peaceful, more self-assured and productive person. I have since accomplished things I never thought I was capable of, thanks to Melody Beatty. You do not have to be living with an alcoholic or substance abuser to benefit from this ground breaking work. Ironically, the methods to break free of co-dependency are amazingly simple and the effects are immediate for oneself. This is not a typical self-help book. It will change your way of thinking and reacting to life's situations, good and bad, to become your own person.

Blame, Blame and more Blame

If you are the family member that handles things for ...
If you are the family member that handles things for everyone else and seems to be the only one responsible, you should read this book.

Useful handbook
Helpful handbook with elementary principles of codependent (co-addict) behavior spelled out and defined clearly. I used a marker to highlight useful passages I identified with. I liked that the book gives the reader options for taking action, and finding resources for continuing education and growth in recovery. The book does these things without "bashing" the addict/alcoholic or whomever is the "other half" of the codependent relationship. Gives empowerment to the codependent without creating or exacerbating negativity and hostility towards the addict, which is counter-productive IMO to the recovery process.

The book was falling apart!!!!
the content of this book was OK; but the book was so old! I expected a new addition of the book with newer information!

A great book in helping to understand a manipulative person
An old book but still applicable today to help living with or loving someone with substance abuse problems, or someone who tends to be manipulative.

Great book
Codependency is very common and the author writes this book in a very relatable way. I had this same book about 20 years ago and it stands the test of time....awesome then and still awesome now.

The book is great. The problem is that Amazon has listed the same ISBN for multiple editions. If you don't care which edition you receive fine, but if you want a specific edition, I strongly suggest you contact the seller PRIOR to your purchase to make sure that you will receive that specific edition. I ordered multiple 1992 editions from different sellers (white cover with red letters) and in every case I received the 1987 edition (blue cover with white letters). This is an Amazon problem, not a seller problem and one that I am hoping Amazon will fix. Amazon is aware of the issue. BTW the ISBN for the blue covered 1987 edition is: 0-06-255446-8.

The cover was poor and there was highlighting on the pages - but that was ok for the great price we paid. More important, the content of the book was perfectly readable, and that was really all that mattered. Thank you!

to help or to help myself..............thats the question
not done with the book, but as a therapist I need boundaries also to follow and sometimes helping others really isnt..........its a way to keep attached to problems for the one who needs to be the savior
