2008 Sonderbooks Stand-out: #5 Nonfiction, Personal Growth

In Codependent No More, Melody Beattie explains codependency to those trapped in it, and helps them start down the road to recovery.

In Beyond Codependency, she celebrates recovery and revels in the fact that life does get better.

She says herself, "Codependent No More, my last book, was about stopping the pain and gaining control of our lives. This book is about what to do when the pain has stopped and we've begun to suspect we have lives to live. It's about what happens next."

As such, this is a hopeful, encouraging, and uplifting book.
