Lost in the Shuffle: The Co-Dependent Reality
"Co-dependency" is the denial or repression of the real self. It is based on the wrong belief that love, acceptance, security, success, closeness and salvation are all dependent upon one's ability to do "the right thing." In the process, the co-dependent denies who he really is. Once addicted, the codependent becomes blind to the reality of his own behavior and to his own self-worth.
A witty and well-told story, Lost In The Shuffle is written for those who seek to find themselves and break free of their troubled past and their present addiction to the rules the do-dependent lives by. Robert Subby presents new insights in an earthy, honest manner and shares the process of recovery with all who have been lost in the shuffle.

Review: Lost In The Shuffle: The Co-Dependent RealityUser Review - IziEzi - Goodreads
This book was written just when psychologists were "discovering" co-dependency, so it explains what co-dependent behavior is to some extent, but mostly it's almost a memoir of the author's own struggles with alcholism (which creates co-dependent behavior.) Read full review
