Schaef applies the addictions of sex, love, romance, and relationships to her broader addiction theory and clearly defines and contrasts the relationship addictions.
Anne Wilson Schaef, Ph.D., is the bestselling author of Meditations for Women Who Do Too Much, Women's Reality, and Co-Dependence, among others. Schaef specializes in work with women's issues and addictions and has developed her own approach to healing which she calls Living in Process. Her focus now is helping people, societies, and the planet make a paradigm shift.
Christina Paul1 Stars Out Of 5July 14, 2008Christina PaulThe book had some good points, but not many. First of all, it never talks about God. The solution suggested is focused on the self, not God's healing. God's role in all of it is not talked about once. Second of all, because of its focus on the self, it approaches things in a way "whatever makes you feel good" sense. An example is the author left her husband (even though she said the marriage could get better) not because he had an affair or abused her but because she was no longer in love and felt he was not a great husband and she thinks that was a good decision (though Christ spoke against that idea in the gospels). Not a very helpful book.
