I really related to this book! Both of my step parents were alcoholics and my parents were unintentionally neglectful and controlling. I have recently left what I hope will be my last controlling and emotionally abusive relationship. I am ready to take responsibility for my own thoughts and feelings and break the cycle. I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone that identifies themselves as co-dependent as well as anyone who does not; I think we all expect others to take responsibility for our feelings at times and unfortunately most of us carry through negative patterns that we have developed as children from our parents. The book is written very well and I was impressed by the reflectiveness of the author. The narration is also very well done.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
I expected a lot more of recovery rather than it being all about the lead up to recovery and then THE END
Has The Road Back to Me put you off other books in this genre?
No it hasn't put me off other books, i will do more research in future to make sure that i choose something that addresses my needs
Did Gina E. Manegio do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?
Do you think The Road Back to Me needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Definitely, the book should have been titled differently, i was expecting to learn a step by step account of what she did to change her life. instead what she wrote about was all the disfunction that brought her to the decision to seek help
Any additional comments?
This is a book about codependency and dysfunctional patterns which most people who have them are looking for a way out of. Lisa writes about her life up to the point of recovery. It is a autobiography and not a self help book and i do not like autobiography"s and would never choose to read one

what a drag!
I was only able to listen to it for an hour (this is fast forwarding hoping it would get better) thought it would have a bit more insight and clinical approach, It is basically a person telling all the dysfunction in her family. No need to hear what I have.

I wanted to hear solutions. I understand the story is important, but I did expect there would be some information in it that was not just history.
