Too many relationships take on an addictive quality. Those who have personality disorders are most likely to want an all consuming relationship that is both abusive and restrictive. But both parties have to participate. So it becomes a mutual codependency. It can only happen when we are not afraid to be alone with only ourselves as support. The authors make clear love is not need. When we need, we risk becoming addicted to the one person who can provide it. When that one person is us, we can avoid addictive relationships.

This book is controversial to say the least. Author's opinions about recovery are not necessarily those of the mainstream. His stated back ground is in psychology and legal. He does not have a medical background. One must no forget this when reading this text. Having said this, I think that he has some good things to say. Worth reading.

When it first came out , decades ago, it absolutely but addiction theory on it's head. To consider non chemical addictions was groundbreaking. At this time it's a bit dated due to it's psychoanalytic- 70's Rhetoric .

Best book around on the subject of addiction and the way love can also mimic it. The 2015 update takes into account much recent research. A classic.

I read and have gifted many copies to friends. I am an avid reader and this book is connecting science, research and human psychology in a very successful way. It explains many addictive human behaviour and the globalisation of addictive personality . Highly recommend it.
This book wasn't exactly what I was expecting, but it's still a good read. For me it spends too much time discussing addiction to drugs instead of comparing how it's similar to addiction to love. Very well written though, and still entertaining.
