Dysfunctional codependent relationships are very common as well. While there are many scenarios in which they occur, addiction is very often thrown around. People who are addicted to substances like alcohol will readily manipulate those around them to support their addiction. While we have all seen this before, what is a little harder to see is relationship addiction, in which a person becomes so dependent on their partner that they will do anything to keep that relationship the same. This usually means that their partner suffers the consequences, causing tensions and resentment to rise. Often, these relationships escalate into cases of emotional and physical abuse.
This book will detail the possible scenarios of dysfunctional codependent relationships in an effort to bring light to a common, yet often undefined problem within the inner workings of society. Most people do not realize that they are manipulating others, or that they are being manipulated, but a great deal of stress stems from it.
With help recognizing these problems, you will be able to identify codependency and its triggers and find ways to set boundaries within these relationships to improve your life and the lives of those around you. It is impossible to cut interaction with people out of your life completely, and that is certainly not recommended. Instead, learn to have healthy relationships with others while protecting your best interests.

An excellent book that goes straight to the point and the heart of the matter. Think you are being emotionally manipulated? listen to this book and you will know for sure whether or not it is your mind or someone else that is playing tricks on you. I am guessing that if you pick this book out, it is likely someone else. This book is an excellent source for getting to know the signs so you can remedy the problem.

This book is fantastic. Once I started listening to it, I couldn't put it down. The author gives descriptions of each type of codependent so that there is a through understanding of each one, goes over the traits of each, gives examples of how you might fit into each one, then gives good sound advice, exercises, and techniques for overcoming them. Just the suggestions for building your self-esteem and learning how to love yourself make this book a must read. I recommend to everyone.

best book for codependency
Some people may not realize that their codependence is already having an impact in their current relationship. This is not just limited to spouses, but also to parent and children and vice versa. This book will show you how to end codependence and have a more fulfilling and happy relationship with your loved ones. The writing is not preachy and very much logical in its approach in identifying the underlying causes of codependency.
