I am a huge fan of Tian Dayton's work. Her books have provided so much understanding of the problems associated with being an Adult Child and at the same time they truly convey a sense of hope for healing and recovery. I strongly recommend both this book, as well as The ACOA Trauma Syndrome.

I have enjoyed many books on audible, I specially like to listen to parenting and self help.
This is neither helpful in a practical sense or engaging and is like having a encyclopedia read in a monotone voice. It is read extremely fast for the complicated content and the content just bounces from one theory to another...very very quickly.
Neither well written or well read in my opinion.
I own 20 books, this is the first that grated on the ears.
If you could sum up Emotional Sobriety in three words, what would they be?
Parenting, Defining, Frustrating.
What about Elizabeth Hanley’s performance did you like?
Good performance. Steady and even.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Definitely not...needed time in between to process.
Any additional comments?
I was really hoping that we would eventually get to the "solution" for emotional sobriety. Instead, the book delved into the parenting aspects and the childhood trauma that creates emotional sobriety.

If you had completely abismal parents with severe mental illness or addiction this book is for you. I can't praise this book enough for those who had completely incompetent people as parents. Now if you had slightly selfish parents who were meaningfully employed but were too controlling or manipulative, then Toxic Parents would be a better book for you. It depends on your situation. I like both books but this one was more applicable to me.
