About the Author:

Anne Wilson Schaef, Ph.D., is the bestselling author of Meditations for Women Who Do Too Much, Women's Reality, and Co-Dependence, among others. Schaef specializes in work with women's issues and addictions and has developed her own approach to healing which she calls Living in Process. Her focus now is helping people, societies, and the planet make a paradigm shift.

Review:

"The author of "Women's Reality goes one step further in interpreting white male culture as an addictive culture. Taking into account substances like alcohol, nicotine, and other drugs, as well as behaviors like eating, spending, and sex, Schaef looks at addictions as part of an all-encompassing societal matrix, and shows us how to think and act more freely."-- "Ms."Schaef's work has profoundly influenced my thinking, giving me the language and metaphors to better understand myself, others, and previously baffling situations I have encountered."-- Florence Graves, editor, "New Age Journal"Anne Wilson Schaef eloquently articulates the problems and processes of addiction and codepenency. Challenging readers to more beyond their own dependency issues and to recognize the addictive system we live in, she offers us a much clearer option of choosing, not to die, but to live."-- Claudia A. Black, author of "It Will Never Happen to Me"Schaef dares and directs the reader to think and behave anew in order to live an addictive-free, whole life....She makes new and long overdue connections between addictive individuals and society. I sensed that history was being made as I read: new ground was turned; new truths discovered. No one can read this book without making fresh self-discoveries."-- Jack M. Smith, The Stanley Foundation
