Item Description...
Overview
A close and revealing look at the inner workings of people obsessed with their partners to the point of destroying the relationship on which they have come to depend. Some men and women attach themselves to destructive relationships that they cannot walk away from. They pathologically need to control their partners, using whatever means necessary, including money, sex, food, and emotions. They stalk, harass, and abuse their partners in an effort to exert control and cannot function unless they are in a relationship. Men and women who confuse love with obsession can discover healthy, loving relationships with others but only when they learn to have a healthy, loving relationship with themselves.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A lifesaver  Sep 2, 2006
Are you loved--or are you an object of obsession? This is the tough question you can sort out with the help of this book.

I've never seen a book deal with this subject. Many of us have been subject to this type of controlling, sort of insane relationship. And who has helped? Finally there is a book to explain some of the actions of a loved one who is more oriented toward obsession than true love.

This book can help you distinguish between how to change such a relationship into a loving one, or when it is not going to be anything but obsessive and move on. I guess the people most interested in this book will be those with an obsessive partner, and that makes sense--finally there is a book to help us sort out the mysterious codes and signals that reveal an obsessive relationship rather than a healthy one.
 
Thank you, Dr. Moore!  Sep 2, 2006
Wow, I can't begin to tell you what a help this will be to you if you've ever had a partner whom you suspect is looking a little too close. This book will explain those behaviors that are just plain obsessive--looking into your bank accounts, talking to your friends, etc.--crazy stuff that crazy lovers do.

Best of all, the book explains the whys behind the behaviors, so that you can begin to heal and understand that it's not you, it's the behaviors of the other person that are over the top.

I don't easily follow books like this unless they are written in a clear, sensible, easy-to-understand style, and this one certainly fits that. Every chapter is fascinating and builds deeper insight. I highly recommend it.
 
Incredibly insightful  Sep 2, 2006
This book goes well beyond what you expect. It's an indepth look at obsessive relationships and how they tick. But it also helps you distinguish between an obsessive relationship and a regular one. There are many valuable pieces of advice on love and family relationships, and distinguishing what is healthy and what is not.

Fortunately, this not like many self-help or psychology books, where you feel the information is above you. It is written in a highly-readable, interesting style. Whether or not you're an impatient reader, this will hold your interest--and you will "get" the information presented.

Examples from real life help you understand the seemingly minor differences between regular and obsessive relationships. If you've ever suspected your relationship is bordering on control and meeting another's needs, this is certainly the book for you. It is incredibly helpful.
 
This book is the ANSWER!!!!  Aug 27, 2006
What a brilliant, brilliant piece of work! I was not aware that I needed this book until I read it. Having read so many 'self help' books over the years, I still hadn't found the root of the problem until until I read this book. I was not at all expecting to see myself in any of the relationship scenarios, but to my surprise I saw myself in most of the scenarios. This book was hugely instrumental in helping me answer some huge questions I've had for a long time. It even answered some questions I hadn't asked myself. This book is much bigger than a 'self help' book. MUCH BIGGER!
 
Changed my life!  Aug 24, 2006
This was the first book that truly spoke to my situation. I had a hard time putting the book down becuase I related to so many of the people inside. Finally, someone has written a book for both women and men about obsessive, addictive relationships. I feel like I have new insight into problem and can start making positive changes in my life. Excellent book for anyone caught up in another person.
