Publisher's Summary

Based on the public television series of the same name, Bradshaw On: The Family is John Bradshaw's seminal work on the dynamics of families that has sold more than a million copies since its original publication in 1988. Here, you will discover the cause of emotionally impaired families. You will learn how unhealthy rules of behavior are passed down from parents to children, and the destructive effect this process has on our society. Using the latest family research and recovery material in this new edition, Bradshaw also explores the individual in both a family setting and a societal setting. He shows you ways to escape the tyranny of family-reinforced behavior traps---from addiction and co-dependency to loss of will and denial---and demonstrates how to make conscious choices that will transform your life and the lives of your loved ones. He helps you heal yourself and then, using what you have learned, helps you heal your family. Finally, Bradshaw extends this idea to our society: by returning yourself and your family to emotional health, you can heal the world in which you live. He helps you reenvision societal conflicts from the perspective of a global family, and shares with you the power of deep democracy: how the choices you make every day can affect---and improve---your world.

Helpful book; WRONG narrator

The book deals with sensitive emotional issues, which are steamrolled by the narrator's barbaric performance. The number of mispronounced words, additionally, is truly disturbing and profoundly distracts the listener from the content.
Good book and gifted therapist/author--wrong narrator!

Awful narrator

Great book with a really awful narration, I really tried because I'm interested on the subject but couldn't listen to the end. Sounds like he's reading a tv comercial line rather than such a sensitive book.
