More About Melody Beattie
In addiction and recovery circles, Melody Beattie is a household name. She is the best-selling author of numerous books, including Codependent No More, Beyond Codependency, The Language of Letting Go, More Language of Letting Go, and 52 Weeks of Conscious Contact. Her first book, Codependent No More, was published by Hazelden in 1986. Melody's compassionate and insightful look into codependency--the concept of losing oneself in the name of helping another--struck a universal chord among families struggling with a loved one's addiction. Twenty years later, the concepts continue to ring true for millions worldwide, as the book has sold more than four million copies and has been translated into more than a dozen languages. Melody currently has 13 titles with Hazelden and several more with other publishers. One of Melody's more recent titles with Hazelden is, The Grief Club, which was published in 2006. This inspirational book gives the reader an inside look at the miraculous phenomenon that occurs after loss--the being welcomed into a new "club" of sorts, a circle of people who have lived through similar grief and pain, whether it be the loss of a child, a spouse, a career, or even one's youth. She writes, "There's a secret to getting through loss, pain, and grief. If we're alone we can't see who we are. When we join the club, other people become the mirror. Through them, we see ourselves and gain an understanding of what we're going through. Then slowly, real slowly, we learn to accept who we see in the mirror." In 2007, Hazelden published Melody's newest title, Gratitude, a beautifully illustrated collection of passages from Melody's earlier work that encourages readers to reconnect with what's truly important in life--the everyday blessings that are ever-present and ever-sustaining.

Lo recominedo como una gran motivacion para aprender y superarnos o quizas para todas aquellas personas que en algun momento han sentido que son muy codependientes.
Codependencia es una enfermedad Jun 18, 2007
Muchas personas no saben lo qué es la codependencia. El libro nos ayuda comprender los efectos de la dysfunción en la familia. Hay una solución en buscar la recuperación.
Me gusta la manera que está escrito, no es un manual profesional que es muy complicado. Es un libro que se usa palablas sencillas, conceptos básicas, y explica en una forma que todos puedan entender.
Por eso, es mi opinión que el libro es muy importante para personas buscando como mejorarse. También, es un libro para pastores, misioneros, profesores, trabajadores sociales y personas que quieren ayudar a los otros salir de sus relaciones enfermas.
Tenemos una cultura con tantos problemas, adicciones y enfermedades mentales, que debemos buscar la solución.
Creo en el uso de "self-help" o sea, "auto-ayuda" porque he visto que sí, uno puede vivir mejor cuando saben lo que es el problema de verdad.
A Book That Has Saved Many Lives Jun 30, 2000
In this wonderful book, Melody Beattie provides the reader with the necessary tools to overcome the burden of codependency. Although it gives examples to help the families of alcoholics, the book stresses that any addiction and its effects can be overcomed if we only recognize the reasons the behaviors were developed in the first place. I was sexually molested as a child and, as a result, two major consecuences appeared: I was subconsciously trying to destroy my body and so became clinically overweight, and I wanted to control those around me and make sure they did not ruin their lives with what I viewed as the wrong choices. I did not understand why, if my brain knew that I should take care of my body, and if I had dreams to lead a full, active life, I was "killing" myself. I had alienated the people I cared about, I "hated" what I had become, I was totally dependent on the opinions of others, and valued myself by what they said. I was terribly unhappy. THIS WAS ONE OF THE BOOKS THAT SAVED MY LIFE. It made me realize that it was just fine to like myself, to treat myself well, and to be happy. I recommend this book to everyone who is looking for answers to the vicious circle of codependency. Buy it, apply it, and set yourself free. I certainly did.
