Eye opening!

This is an excellent book if you are looking to identify behavioural patterns and recover from love addiction. Along with an excellent analysis of causes and patterns, there are also practical exercises to help you. The author speaks from her expertise not only in research but also from personal experience which really enriches the book. In parts, it felt like the narration was flat where the content was actually very powerful but overall it's a terrific listen with lots of "ah ha!" and "uh oh!" moments for me. I highly recommend it to those seeking self-help in this area.

The only book you will ever need on love addiction!

Hands down, this book takes you down an introspective and very well - informed road on love addiction. The author absolutely knows this topic thoroughly, and clearly, gently, with compassion, teaches you how to heal; and cease old, outdated, harmful, unloving attitudes and behaviors that fuel this all-too painful addiction. Please listen to it, and do so with an open mind and heart. It’s a real keeper! Thank you for an awesome production with flawless narration to sweeten the deal!

Informative but hard to follow & boring narrator

I like the information, it’s informative & educational BUT his voice is so boring. Also I wish he’d be less repetitive with certain terms & shorten others. I definitely learned a bit about my significant other, my siblings, & parents.

FINALLY ON AUDIBLE!

Been hoping for Pia Mellody or Patrick Carnes books to be available in audio books and was delighted to stumble on this just a few days after it was released. Not a fan of the narrator. He almost sounds sarcastic or put out by having to read hah! but if you can get past that, content is great! Also this particular title seems like you might also need a printed copy to actually do the writing assignments.

It was just ok.....

Maybe I was expecting something different but the book was just ok to me. There were some valuable points but didn’t get as much out of it as I was expecting...
