I bought this book as a recommendation from my counselor to help me work through some family issues. I was raised in a home very different from the way that I have chosen to be as an adult and I was reflecting very poorly on my family because of the way that they raised me. This book helped me to see my family members as well-meaning and loving people doing the very best with the information that they had, in the context of the society in which they grew up, and at the time in history that they found themselves in. I cannot recommend this book enough! Buy one for yourself and anyone that you know that is having difficulty with their family!

Since this was my first exposure to the ideas and concepts behind "Family of Origin Work" I did find the first half of the book useful and easy to understand as an introduction to this type of thing - although if you're already familiar with the ideas and concepts of "Family of Origin Work" it may be too basic for you.

I found the second half of the book - on how to actually process and deal with these family issues - much less helpful. The author stresses that YOU are the one that needs to change (and I agree) - yet most of the suggestions involve going to your family members and asking questions and interviewing them. It just seemed to contradict itself - YOU have to change so go talk to THEM. When it came to actually making your own independent changes to become a more differentiated person I found there really wasn't any insightful or helpful suggestions.

It's sort of like the author does a good job of saying what's gone wrong and perhaps how it went wrong - however there's not much info on how to actually do something about it. Overall I feel it's severely lacking the information that's needed most.

This book is written in an easy-to-read style, so if you're looking for a first-crack at Bowen family theory or Edwin H. Friedman's "Failure of Nerve," this is a good place for a layperson to start.

Richardson goes through how families link on an emotional level in ways that might surprise readers (well, it surprised me, but then I've been neglecting my reading on sociological/psychological/human behaviour). If you're going through some family craziness, this book might be of help.

Toward the end, Richardson recommends a years-long process of interviewing family members in a non-confrontational way so as to help the interviewer (you, presumably) understand how your family functions and how it affects you. The interviews are not an attempt to 'fix' your family, but to fix you. It's a good idea, because you are the only person you can really change. Others might follow suit, but that is up to them.

Would I go through that process? I'm not sure. I come from a geneologically obsessed family, so I already have a good idea of the origins of my quirks, however, I tried out some of this on a family member recently and got some very surprising and frank answers. It helped me understand the dynamics from her end of the family a lot better, and with understanding comes some compassion (instead of fear and annoyance) at the way another family member treats others.

Of particular interest is how our absent family members affect us - whether they are absent because of estrangement, social distancing, death, adoption or abortion. Hey, no one is going to want to admit the aborted baby affects their family dynamic, but believe me, the absence of that nameless person is still felt, possibly more so because it came about by someone's decision, not by the random-ness of accident or disease.

And so, it's a good read, but don't look for a cure-all. Richardson focuses more on your family as a book with un-ending chapters to be read.

Richardson delivers exactly what he promises - a good introduction to Family Systems in layperson terms. Do not expect that you can read this brief work and become an expert on Family Systems or even make major changes in your own life by reading this "Self-help guide" (or any other self-help guide for that matter). For that you will have to do your own work with lots of introspection and for most more guidance and learning than this book can provide, but it does deliver a very good introduction and gets you thinking about your relationships in a new way. Very good resource.

I bought this book because I keep lending it out and never getting it back. This is probably the 5th book Ive bought. Excellent application of Bowen systems theory, though Bowen is not mentioned in the book. The same principles are essentially all there in the content.

Good book.
This is a good basic book on family systems. People will find what they need, both in understanding why it's important and in practical help in working on selves by seeking greater understanding of where they fit and how they react emotionally within their own family systems.
