Review: Codependent No More: How to Stop Controlling Others and Start Caring for Yourself

User Review  - Marnie Hanson - Goodreads

This is a great book for everyone as I believe we are all codepent in some way. This book was recommended by my Codependency Group I attended 2 years ago. It really helps you see what you are doing in all aspects of your life that become out of control. Read full review

User Review  - Alyssa - Goodreads

I really did not enjoy this book. I found it gave more of a definition about what a codependent person is rather than provide solutions. My favourite chapters were 14 and 15. Read full review
