Is someone else's problem your problem? If, like so many others, you've lost sight of your own life in the drama of tending to someone else's, you may be codependent--and you may find yourself in this book.

The healing touchstone of millions, this modern classic by one of America's best-loved and most inspirational authors holds the key to understanding codependency and to unlocking its stultifying hold on your life.

With instructive life stories, personal reflections, exercises, and self-tests, Codependent No More is a simple, straightforward, readable map of the perplexing world of codependency--charting the path to freedom and a lifetime of healing, hope, and happiness.

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.
