        Comments about Codependent No More:

        If you live with someone who demands a lot of attention or seems to need it, this book could be for you. If you were raised by someone who has to be the centre of attention or you believe your parents or long term partner has a few issues, this book could help to correct or to give some insight into your behavior and how these people may have affected your way of thinking without realizing it.

            In Newsweek magazine, Dr. Drew Pinsky named Melody Beattie's Codependent No More one of the four essential self-help books available today, calling it the "grandaddy of addiction tomes." "Melody Beattie is an American phenomenon....She understands being overboard, which helps her throw best-selling lifelines to those still adrift."--TIME
