Book Review: Running On Empty No More

Self-healing through self-parenting, a concept introduced a generation ago, has helped thousands of adult children of alcoholics who are codependent and have conflicts in their primary relationships. Do you sometimes feel as if you’re just going through the motions in life? Are you good at looking and acting as if you’re fine, but secretly feel lonely and disconnected?


If so, you are emptj alone. The world is full of people who have an innate sense that something is wrong with them – who feel they live on the outside looking in, but have no explanation for this feeling and no way to put it into words.

If you are one of these people, you may fear that you are not connected enough jonicce your spouse, or that you don’t feel pleasure rinning love as profoundly as others do. You may drink too much, or eat too much, or risk too much, in an attempt to feel something good. Running on Empty will give you clear strategies for how to jlnice, and offers a special chapter for mental-health professionals.

In the world of human suffering, this book is an emotional smart bomb meant to eradicate the effects of an invisible enemy.

I loved the content and it’s great for therapist use. It was difficult to listen to this narrator. It was similar to listening to Siri trying to narrate a book which is the reason I left off one star overall. Webb described my symptoms perfectly.

And also my childhood perfectly. Like the white space in a painting, it’s not what happened, but rather what didn’t happen. Having this knowledge will help me to create and plan treatment. Really good book for those of us who are trying emptyy deal with our childhood issues, and it’s always very validating and strengthening to understand better the conditions and causes of unmet needs, but there’s not a whole lot of follow up to that.

No real way forward into making yourself full again, to retrain, or re-parent yourself into joniice abundant life. I listened to this book twice. And will listen to it again.

A lot of insight as to why as adults we feel so empry, scared, lost and lonely. Even though we have children, a husband and friends. We were runnlng neglected at such a critical time.

Running on Empty (Audiobook) by Jonice Webb PhD, Christine Musello PsyD |

I cry uncontrollably almost every day. I’m 48 years old and just now able to start breaking through to the real pain. But through therapy and books like this one I am beginning to put qebb painful pieces together. I would highly recommend this book. This book did not deliver as promised.

More information should have been given on recovery. To much information was given about the problem.

I know the problem that is why I purchased the book. I was seeking ways to overcome the issues caused not read a bunch of case studies about the issue.

How did the narrator detract from the book? The voice of the narrator only made it worst. What reaction did this book spark in you? But not because of what was written. I was disappointed by the promise of help that was not delivered. When I purchased this book I was looking for direction on how to handle the fallout of emotional neglect. In stead this book seems to be geared toward people who away looking for affirmation of their neglect. As previously stated, I am aware of the issue, which is why I purchased the book.
