Don't download

Reading isn't edited. Repeats itself several times. Not worth the download. Get a different version.

poor listen. narrated by a man from a woman point

hated that this book was written by a woman and read by a man. normally I wouldnt care but the man says some things like "as a women I ....." very distracting and took away from the book.

Dang Gary Noon!

I like the book but sheesh the narrator must have fallen asleep. Many repeats and tons of skipping whole pages. If there were 11 bullet points he would say the first two and then skip to number 11.... every time no kidding. It became comical. Definitely choose another narrator. I really think I should get my money back. Great book though!!!

INTERESTING BOOK! LISTEN CAREFULLY!

So this book was recommended to me by a relationship coach I’ve been speaking with.
Now, Prior to listening to the book I went ahead and read some of the reviews. They suggested that this book was very “in to the Bible” and quoted it a lot. I, however, Did notice that it did quote the Bible a little bit. But it didn’t Refer to it as much as people had Suggested. This book gave me great insight on how I was acting in my previous relationship. I unconsciously was doing several things in the relationship that were mentioned in this book. It gives you the knowledge and tools to pinpoint things that you may be doing in any relationship of your life. Now, it does refer to alcohol dependency quite a bit. But you can actually relate it to many things. Not just alcoholism. The book has a section about detachment that really spoke to me. I had taken a lot of notes and received a lot of good info from that section of the book. Be patient with it as it is a slow read but there is great material. My only down grade to this book is that it kind of suggest that everybody is codependent. And what I mean by that is there is a part where it says that giving gifts to people is relatable to codependency. I personally do not agree with that. As giving is a part of growing in life. It’s also a love language. Which seems to be the opposite of what that talks about. Otherwise it’s a good book if you want some insight on how to deal with relationships and people in general this is a good recommendation.

Helped me

The book taught me how to start listening to what my body was telling and not everyone else. I guess I just needed to have someone to tell me it's ok. I can do what I want. The book also taught me how to deal with my husband who is an addict. Thank you.

So helpful to see the light!

Wish the speaker was a female since a female wrote the book. Important in seeing the light of taking care of myself. This book came highly suggested by my life coach. I plan on listening to it again.

Great book, terrible grammar

The reader is really good. There is a ton of good, helpful content so I do recommend this listen. However, the grammar is so bad that it can be distracting. I wish an editor would go through and make corrections so it would read more smoothly.

Reader

Personally I'd like it more if read by a woman, sometimes she talks about her experience and it sounds weird read by a man .
