Publisher's Summary

This book contains proven steps and strategies on how to overcome codependency. Most people who are codependent are constantly in an emotional state of fear, anxiety, and pain or feel like they're losing their way of thinking.
These individuals tend to think they can make other people around them happy, and when they can't, they feel somehow less than others. As if life has placed barriers around them, they also feel they are failures. In some cases they pretend to be what they're not, trying to pursue joy and compassion, but the agony of the enemy within themselves (codependency) occurs in their heart each day. They foster all of this in their heart and hope to be free from it one day. These individuals tend to hold things within themselves, and then, at inappropriate times, they overreact or have a tendency to overact.
Some psychologists argue that codependency has become a catch-all for many problems such as low self-esteem, anger control problems, depression, anxiety, and communication problems, and under its current definition virtually everyone in the United States could be diagnosed as codependent. But because of the secret and hidden nature of their control strategies, passive codependents are perceived as more manipulative.

List of codependent behaviour.

It is a great list of Codependent behaviour. Clear & concise, though would be more appropriate to get it in book form rather than as an audiobook.

It's really more characteristics & questions to answer at the end of the book. Hence needing it as a visual product rather than verbal.

Very short book.

Is not not a very detailed book. It is more like an outline for a book that is under development.
