Melody Beattie's Beyond Codependency and Codependent
No More were on The Times bestseller list for many months.
Direct, unsentimental, and passionate, Melody Beattie's voice became that of a generation of people healing from damaged lives, relationships, and families in 1987 when her first book, Codependent No More, exploded onto America's self-help bookshelves.
Codependent No More has now sold over 8 million copies, and her 9 books are read by millions of readers world-wide.
The message was clear: if a majority of the world's population could be described as essentially codependent
or dysfunctional, the global solution was simple and obvious: therapy for everyone in conjunction with the twelve steps.
Perhaps those perpetually analyzed, codependent
, and confused Americans would eventually come to realize that our highest cultural ideal should not be finding oneself, but hearing and helping others.
