Reviews - What do customers think about Is It Love or Is It Addiction? - Second Edition?
A Little Too Clinical For Me Dec 12, 2008
It's a good book but it's very clinical and a little difficult for a layperson to get into.
BRILLIANT! Dec 27, 2007
Well written, explains the reasons behind the toxic codependent dynamics, how to recognise them, and how to heal. A MUST HAVE!
excellent book Jun 9, 2007
simple, concise book that takes you through the subject in an interesting way.
I recommend it
One of the most important books I've ever read Jul 28, 2006
I initially bought this book because I wondered if being in love was just an addiction. But I learned so much more than that. This book should be helpful for practically everyone. It talks about how our love relationships are related to unmet needs from childhood. It described my parents relationship almost exactly and I see how it affected me. It was amazing that anyone knew all this stuff.
Very Helpful Jul 20, 2005
Not only discusses the symptoms, but also walks you through some steps to stop it, and to work through it. A wonderful book. I keep it on my bedside and consult it frequently even though I have read it cover to cover.
