The Human Magnet Syndrome completely rewrites what we know and understand about codependency and narcissism. This break-through book has sold over 120,000 copies and is published in 9 languages. It is a codependency staple for both mental health professionals and the clients they help. Its success is the driving force behind his YouTube channel’s success, which has accumulated over 16 million views and 170,000 subscribers.
The Human Magnet Syndrome: The Codependent Trap is a complete rewrite of Rosenberg’s 2013 version. It includes over 125 pages of new material. The book explains why people are magnetically and irresistibly drawn together, not so much by what they see, feel and think, but more by invisible unconscious relationship force. It explains relational “chemistry” and why its irresistibly alluring and seductive “love force” is impossible to avoid. Codependents and pathological narcissists simply cannot avoid HMS’s inevitable dysfunctional opposite match-up. What starts off as the codependent’s dream “soul mate” almost always transforms into their nightmare “cellmate.”
"...this will treat the reader to an invaluable body of knowledge and experience … with a treasure trove of useful tools and tips. Ross generously contributes a well-crafted and relevant resource for healing…demonstrating a means for transforming painful lifelong patterns into meaningfully healthy ones."
"Why and how people select partners is a...mystery...Rosenberg opens the dark side of romantic attraction to the light of analysis and offers the tragic narcissist/codependent lovers a well-lighted path to understanding and healthy relating."
"Ross not only identifies and names the HMS, he also describes it in a personal, colorful, engaging way, sharing much of his own personal story to bring it to life. [his first book] has been in the waiting room of my psychotherapy practice for years. I can’t wait to offer the new edition … as a resource for understanding and healing."
"Ross...understands the codependent and narcissistic dynamic. His latest work is even more concise, informative, and comprehensive. If you are struggling with codependency...this book will be of great value to you. If you are a mental health professional...this book will serve as a great resource."
"Ross is an absolute pioneer in the field...A must read for any therapist, counselor, health care professional or anyone caught in the prison of a toxic relationship."
