Based on the public television series of the same name, Bradshaw On: The Family is John Bradshaw's seminal work on the dynamics of families that has sold more than a million copies since its original publication in 1988. Here, you will discover the cause of emotionally impaired families. You will learn how unhealthy rules of behavior are passed down from parents to children, and the destructive effect this process has on our society. Using the latest family research and recovery material in this new edition, Bradshaw also explores the individual in both a family setting and a societal setting. He shows you ways to escape the tyranny of family-reinforced behavior traps-from addiction and co-dependency to loss of will and denial-and demonstrates how to make conscious choices that will transform your life and the lives of your loved ones. He helps you heal yourself and then, using what you have learned, helps you heal your family. Finally, Bradshaw extends this idea to our society: by returning yourself and your family to emotional health, you can heal the world in which you live. He helps you reenvision societal conflicts from the perspective of a global family, and shares with you the power of deep democracy: how the choices you make every day can affect-and improve-your world.

    " Quite good and eye opening. "

    " This book has some good ideas and insights, and I definitely learned something from it. But it is so poorly written and organized, and after a while the end-of-chapter summaries made me want to vomit. Bradshaw also comes across as both hokey and arrogant. I'm glad I read it, but as I was reading it I thought, "there must be something better written on this subject." If I find that something, I'll post it. "

    " If you can get past the wordplay and mnemonic formulae, this book is powerful. Bradshaw directs us to apply systems theory to families, and view family systems as complex, interdependent networks. Wish there was a more recent version, the "revised" edition is from 1996. Definitely look for the most recent edition as Bradshaw has tweaked some of his original theories from the 1980's to keep them current with later psychological research. "

    " Offers profound and powerful insight into systems theory at play within every family dynamic. Will add dimension for those with already quite a lot of self and other awareness in their family, and can serve as a great initiative in reflection for those who have not yet explored the terrain of their family.
