THE INTIMACY FACTOR by Pia Mellody
Though this one is a more recent work, nevertheless FACING LOVE ADDICTION, by this same author, is a much more valuable work than this. There are some occasional exceptional insights and advice here, but really, this book seems to have been written for professional therapists as opposed to those who (haplessly) find themselves in such dysfunctional relationships as the disastrous addict/avoidant mess. This is mainly a bunch of too loosely organized anecdotes–apparently both fictitious and non-fictitious–and a bunch of procedural advice for shrinks. Skip this and read FACING LOVE ADDICTION. See my review on that other book.
