Very good in content but very much too concise
Would you try another book written by Janet Geringer Woititz or narrated by Therese Plummer?
I don't know. The reader was okay (a bit too quick). The book itself good in content but extremely concise. I am ACoA and part of my recovery/therapy is read or listen to good texts. This book is almost like reading an Encyclopedia, so brief. I wish it had more examples written in more elaborate manner. I got a great deal from this book but was frustrated with the approach.
If you’ve listened to books by Janet Geringer Woititz before, how does this one compare?
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
Narrator was okay. The only thing maybe would be to read slower. The text is so packed with meaning that it could allow the listener to absorb the content better.
Any additional comments?
I will hold to this book inspite of my frustration expressed earlier. I need to listen to it again and pause at times in order to digest the content and relate it to my life, think of other examples.

CONCISE PROBLEM ANALYSIS. SOLUTIONS, NOT SO MUCH.
I really found this book to be very enlightening. It was written and read well. As it is not my first book on the subject, it was more reinforcing in nature, which was fine. It helped me articulate issues that I needed to convey to my therapist. The narrator did a great job, she made the book feel less technical and more humanistic, as it should be.
The format of the book as that each of the characteristics of ACOA's were concisely explored first. Then when we got to the section where she was to offer some ways to address the related issues. Well, it seemed she rehashed the explanation of the issues again.
But I see the problem with this. The bottom line is, all one can do is offer some generalized insight on how to address these issues. Overcoming them is a very daunting and personal challenge. So I don't fault her. I'll keep this as a reference and highly recommend it to others who are ACOA's. It's definitely ON POINT!

I had the book in print for years and it's dog-eared pages and highlighted text well, sometimes was really hard to put down and then pick up again. Hearing it was really amazing...so glad this is in audio finally. One AHA moment that I had was the patience or "now" factor...why I must do things or have things "now" this was something I didn't fully get from the written text. I wish all her titles on this topic were in audio.
