Playing It by Heart: Taking Care of Yourself No Matter What (Google eBook)
"Beattie understands being overboard, which helps her throw best-selling lifelines to those still adrift." ---TIME
Since the publication of Melody Beattie's groundbreaking book Codependent No More, millions of people have confronted the demons of codependency. And yet, many in recovery find themselves slipping back into the old ways that brought them such grief.
In her book Playing It by Heart, Beattie helps readers understand what drives them back into the grasp of controlling behavior and victimhood--and what it takes to pull themselves out, to return to the healing, faith, and maturity that come with a commitment to recovery.
Personal essays, inspiring anecdotes, and prescriptive reminders show readers how to stop acting out their painful obsessions. Marked by compassion and keen insight, Playing It by Heart explores the author's most intense personal lessons and shows readers that, despite setbacks, recovery is a lifelong opportunity for spiritual growth.
In her many best-selling books, including Stop Being Mean to Yourself, Codependent No More, and The Language of Letting Go, Melody Beattie draws on the wisdom of Twelve Step healing, Christianity, and Eastern religions.

Extremely helpful follow up to "Codependant No More".
Even though I am an atheist now, I still love Melody Beattie whose insistence upon self-love, self-respect and physical comfort guided and helped me so much in my most difficult hours.
