For a codependency book that is aimed more at women, be sure to check out

Women Who Love Too Much by Robin Norwood

First published in 1985 and since updated, this one has almost reached "classic" status as I've certainly heard of the title many times over the years.   The book is essentially aimed at women who seek and become involved in endless strings of unfulfilling and unhappy relationships - and are wondering why.  Generally, they set their sights on partners who are unavailable and oftentimes abusive.  Norwood points out in her book the reasons why women pursue these types of relationships and oftentimes the causes lead us back to childhood issues.

“It means, in truth, obsessing about a man and calling that obsession love, allowing it to control your emotions and much of your behavior, realizing that it negatively influences your health and well-being, and yet finding yourself unable to let go. It means measuring the degree of your love by the depth of your torment.” - Robin Norwood

Not only does Norwood help to identify behaviors and many of their underlying causes, she offers hope for a better way to live and change.  In her book, she advises that there are ways to change these behaviors, such as by starting therapy or by joining (or starting) a women's group to get additional support from women with similar issues.   Norwood's book is definitely well-written and has a lot of great material to relate to and suggestions to follow up on.  If you are woman with codependency issues in relationships, you may want to consider giving this book a read.
