Publisher's Summary

If you've had difficulty with starting or maintaining relationships or issues with feeling jealous and possessive, or find that your connections with others are more sources of distress than anything else, this book is for you.
By teaching you ways to be more mindful throughout the day as well as exercises in improving your communication skills, this book will show you how to have relationships that are calmer and more stable and compassionate.
We'll begin with a look at the phenomenon of codependency, what it has traditionally meant in the psychological realm, and how these traits and patterns can be traced back to issues of self-worth, compassion, and more deliberate action. We'll examine how mindfulness can be the magic ingredient to getting a hold of the codependency cycle and some of the characteristics of happy, mindful relationships. Finally, we'll explore a model for mindful communication and ways that you can begin to implement immediately in order to make a commitment to stronger, more compassionate relationships with others.

Potentially life-changing view of relationships

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would definitely recommend this book to friend and have already recommended it to a few people. It present a clear, concise model for healthy, mature, adult relationships which is refreshing, even revolutionary. It opens up a world where the romantic ideal of being completely intertwined with one 'soul mate' is turned on its head and what emerges instead is the possibility for continuous growth both independently and interdependently; the book reminds us of our capacity to change and learn new ways of communicating and of seeing ourselves and those around us. It reminds us of the beauty of every human relationship and reminds us of our tendency to take people for granted. Although it focuses on more on intimate relationships, I have found it applies equally to friendships.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Codependency - "Loves Me, Loves Me Not"?

The list of typical codependent behaviours early on the book was a welcome wake up call to the fact that my future relationships do not need to be the way my past relationships have been.

Have you listened to any of John Malone’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I have also listened to 'Stop worrying and start living' which I found very helpful and 'Mindful eating'. The narration is good on all of them.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, and I have listened to it more than once. It contains so much helpful information that I am planning to listen and make notes.

Any additional comments?

Thank you Simeon!
