Little more than an advertisement for her other two books, in When Society Becomes an Addict Anne seems more interested in obsessing over labels and renaming ideas than making sure what she's saying is very useful. When not failing to hold to her own redundant re-naming conventions, she also enjoys playing at the idea that she came up with the idea of dual psychological states and hammers us with Lincoln Log metaphors.

This book and the others by Anne Wilson Schaef have helped me to put my own experience with family and society .

This book and the others by Anne Wilson Schaef have helped me to put my own experience with family and society into a healthy perspective. I say, bravo to this lady and her work! Excellent! This work put me on the path to true emotional healing and understanding of why people act in harmful ways. Ms. Schaef addresses all forms of addiction, from chemical to behavioral, and sees within our society's gradual acceptance of its own corruptions the seven deadly sins of anger, covetousness, envy, gluttony, lust, pride and sloth. Perpetuating our malaise we see in our leaders the aspects of control, dishonesty and dualism (seeing only two alternative solutions to any problem.

The author indentifies addiction as the underlying malaise of Western society and, in a synthesis of feminist, chemical dependency, and mental health theories, she explores the attributes of the addictive process and discusses its common manifestations
This book is absolutely enlightening and provides a framework for a person to free him or herself from the bondage of a society and system that is diseased and unable to love. Certainly there are aspects of the book or specific anecdotes that don't resonate fully with me, but those tiny throwaways pale in comparison to the overall shift in perception Anne is offering here. I think the message within couldn't be more timely or relevant than it is today. When one is able to truly see the world as it is, then he or she can intentionally create a new way of living and loving.

So often we are left to wonder, "How did our world become this way?" Well, Schael has explored, through her research and personal experience, how society itself becomes the addicted system in which addicts and alcoholics perpetuate their behavior. Where codependents continue their cycles, where those with power, hunger for more and go after it at all costs. Society itself plays a large role in maintaining the system, and now we have a better understanding of why.

The best book ever on addictions, even more pertinent now than when it was written, which makes it a classic!

i agree with another reviewer that she is full of herself and that the information is dated. I stopped reading it even though it was recommended by a naturopathic doctor as a good read on addiction. The book reveals so much about the personality of the author. There is a story she tells about inviting someone to dinner and assigning a meal preparation task--"preparing tomatoes for the tacos." She berates the guest for slicing them and arranging them artfully on a plate when she should have known "that's not the way tomatoes should be prepared; they need to be chopped." It's this kind of section in the book that caused me to put the book on hold to try to read at a later date.

Excellent assessment of our society even now 30+ years later.. But almost comes across silly
when discussing certain topics.. Needs a serious update.. I would like to see a new edition of this book.. the discussion of the topic is much needed.. .....

One of the best books I have read. Combines insights on addiction and politics that helps explain our current political situation. A great book.

As described

Best understanding of addiction of power and society i have read. Was shocked to read some of the items and took a while to digest and accept that is happening in politics today.
