“In writing the Human Magnet Syndrome books, the overriding goal was to provide explanatory and theoretical information about codependency, pathological narcissism and their dysfunctional relationship “dance.” Thousands of people have asked me to write about codependency treatment/recovery, but I have stayed resolute on my mission to answer the very important “why me?” and “what is this?” questions. My beliefs regarding the importance of explanatory information should already be quite familiar but it deserves mentioning again: codependents or mental health practitioners cannot overcome codependency if they don’t know what it is. Moreover, if it’s either misunderstood, mislabeled, or it is confused with another problem, issue, and/or disorder, then the treatment of it will surely have limited results, or will completely fail.”
