Reviews

"Asher's findings suggest that codependency is a problematic concept that has been reified by the therapeutic community in its attempt to control definitions of and treatment for alcoholism. A well-written book."--Choice

"One of the best books on codependency in a long time, because it is not exactly about codependency but rather is about behavior that has been labeled 'codependent.' . . . [Asher's] revealing, thoughtful book is suitable for laypersons as well as professionals."--Booklist
