This book was truly written to begin healing the pain and scars within. The emotions revealed caused more tears than I'd ever imagined. All of the sudden you can understand because it has been put into words for you the things that you never acknowledged or just weren't able to say. This book should be treasured for it's ability to touch and mend your heart if you open yourself up and allow it. It has brought peaceful feelings never experienced before.

Very well written, I have to say very difficult to read...bring memories that's hurtful...but it helped me to understand my own behaviours in relationships and feelings that i could not deal with for years...Yes i would suggest it to anyone to read...

This book certainly hit a lot of things in my life right on the head. I've "struggled" with this and many issues. Counselors thought about "Co-Dependency" which after reading about COA's in this easy to read, direct information I am now convinced they were off base. I suggest this book to learn about "COA's" especially if nothing, ie "Co-Dependency", seems to fit. I just ordered another book by her.

I was disappointed by this book and didn't learn a lot from it. It was mainly written for Children of Alcoholics who have intimacy issues as a result when they're adults. As I am not a child of an alcoholic, most of the book didn't do much for me. I feel like I lost my time. They are much better books on the market about Adult Children that I were great. The Intimacy Struggle offers nothing new. Not worth it.
