Waste of 2 hours

This book was totally a waste. I read women who love too much and thought this would be a good book. Wrong. It was just the same thing not more explanation or should I say a deeper dive into codependency or self love. Just stick with the original and don’t waste your time or money.

gives important insight into codependance

Nice small summary of how codependance develops and where it starts, examples of couples or families where unhealthy relationships form and the need to be needed from others/partners.

good summary

first time I've listened to something like this, I think it's a good way of getting an idea of what the full book has and if like me your scared of self help in general it's a good taster, makes me more confident in self help generally.
