Anderson Cooper, Anderson Cooper 360/CNNThis seminal book, which has been called one of the outstanding contributions to psychological thought by Carl Rogers and one of the great books of our time by Harold Kushner, has been translated into more than fifty languages and sold over sixteen million copies.
An enduring work of survival literature, according to the New York Times, Viktor Frankl’s riveting account of his time in the Nazi concentration camps, and his insightful exploration of the human will to find meaning in spite of the worst adversity, has offered solace and guidance to generations of readers since it was first published in 1946.

3. A Womans Way Through The Twelve Steps
Author: by Stephanie S. Covington
Women’s recovery can differ from men’s, and each person’s recovery is in many ways unique. That’s why Stephanie Covington has designed A Women’s Way Through the Twelve Steps to help a woman find her own path-and find it in terms especially suited to the way women experience not just addiction and recovery but also relationships, self, sexuality, and everyday life.
Unlike many ”rewritten” Twelve Step interpretations for women, this guide works with the original Step language, preserving its spirit and focusing attention on its healing message. This compilation of a diverse group of real women’s voices and wisdom illuminates how women understand the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous and offers inspiring stories of how they have traveled through the Steps and discovered what works for them.
The book can be used alone or as a companion to The Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous. By drawing attention to how recovery raises special issues for women – from questions about sexuality and relationships to essential topics such as powerlessness, spirituality, and trauma – A Woman’s Way empowers women to take ownership of their recovery and to grow and flourish in sobriety.

In Brain Lock, Jeffrey M.Schwartz, M.D., presents a simple four-step method for overcoming OCD that is so effective, it’s now used in academic treatment centers throughout the world.
Proven by brain-imaging tests to actually alter the brain’s chemistry, this method doesn’t rely on psychopharmaceuticals. Instead, patients use cognitive self-therapy and behavior modification to develop new patterns of response to their obsessions. In essence, they use the mind to fix the brain.

You try your best to fix other people’s problems with everything you have, whether it’s your time, money, or resources, because you’ve been doing it your whole life, and you’re used to it.
You hardly say no to helping people because if you do, you feel incredibly guilty, and you don’t want to “lose their love.” You’re always coming to the rescue, and you sacrifice yourself over and over again. If this sounds like you, then you may just be codependent.
Codependency is the “need to be needed.” It’s needing other people to need you. Being needed and valued by your loved ones is essential and healthy, but here’s when it can become a problem: When it drives most of your decisions, behaviors, and you’re only comfortable in relationships where you feel like the person can’t live without you, this is where things start to become unhealthy.
