4 out of 5 (2 ratings)


You're learning to let go, to live your life free of the grip of someone else's problems. And yet you find you've just started on the long journey of recovery.

Let Melody Beattie, author of the classic "Codependent No More," help you along your way.

A guided tour past the pitfalls of recovery, "Beyond Codependency" is dedicated to those struggling to master the art of self-care.

It is a book about what to do once the pain has stopped and you've begun to suspect that you have a life to live.

It is about what happens next. In simple, straightforward terms, Beattie takes you into the territory beyond codependency, into the realm of recovery and relapse, family-of-origin work and relationships, surrender and spirituality.

With personal stories, hard-won insights, and activities, her book teaches the lessons of dealing with shame, growing in self-esteem, overcoming deprivation, and getting past fatal attractions long enough to find relationships that work.

Very interesting book that covers a lot of the author's own battles with codependancy.

Review by

Melody Beattie writes the kind of books you can turn to in a codependent crisis (or the aftermath) to spark back to life that inner voice of reason. Found this book first before 'Codependent No more' and didn't feel I was missing out on any of the subject matter, even though this is the later title published. Did eventually read the first book and still prefer this one. Experienced it as a real place to turn when in need of sound advice, and reassurance regarding those defective relationship reactions. Opened up a whole new perspective on my life growing up, helped make some sense of the all too often unfathomable behavior I experienced and participated in. Be ready for those hard-hitting insights, delivered with a caring tone. Especially found useful the exercises at the end of each chapter. Helped me immensely at the time I used it regularly, still refer to it now. Written by a fellow codependent that genuinely wishes to pass on that hard won wisdom and offer support to those also on the path of recovery.
