    This self-help book is a fast read and a little lightweight compared to some of the more in-depth books out there, but it would be an excellent starting point for anyone who struggles with feelings of guilt that are disproportionate, or who tends to be manipulated by others due to guilt. Carrell's writing style is very clear, and while this book is no substitute for a good therapist, it's an excellent way to start exploring the impact guilt has on one's life, as well as beginning to learn the di This self-help book is a fast read and a little lightweight compared to some of the more in-depth books out there, but it would be an excellent starting point for anyone who struggles with feelings of guilt that are disproportionate, or who tends to be manipulated by others due to guilt.

    I found this book extremely helpful with developing more of an awareness. This book helps one to understand where the guilt is cultivated and what needs to change to evoke a healthier change with self and with relationships. A great read for personal growth and evolution.

    I'm giving this four stars because it really hit home. I've long known that I'm a guilt-ridden person. Given my background, this may not surprise. But I had not until reading this book observed how pervasive guilt can be, how present it is in so many of our relationships, and how it has been the driver for decisions and behaviors I would have never on my own connected with this terrible feeling. As with so many psychologically constructive books, this one proves that awareness of feelings and su I'm giving this four stars because it really hit home.

But I had not until reading this book observed how pervasive guilt can be, how present it is in so many of our relationships, and how it has been the driver for decisions and behaviors I would have never on my own connected with this terrible feeling. As with so many psychologically constructive books, this one proves that awareness of feelings and subconscious motivation is at the beginning of the road toward being at peace with oneself and consequently, with others. I have benefited enormously from the perspective imparted here even in the few weeks since I've read this.

    This book changed my life and saved my life. I do not read self help books but this one was there at the right time for me. If you are paralyzed with fear about hurting another person because you are always plagued by guilt, read this. I do not know why others gave this a poor rating. I read it twice after my husband was sick, depressed, and addicted. I learned to take control of my thoughts and feelings.

    If you have a problem with guilt and feel guilty over EVERY LITTLE THING, and if your a teenager this is why you get called "Goodie Two Shoes", then read this book otherwise life will be no fun because you will think that everything you do is "Bad" even when it's OBVIOUSLY not!!!

    An important subject. This is an easy read. Susan Carrell draws out family dynamics, cultural underpinnings, religious dogmas, professionall profiles that gets people in conflict with themselves and results in toxic Guilt. People usually will find themselves as pseudo-victims or in a rescuer role and they get stuck in unhealthy behavioral habits. People-pleasing, poor boundaries, lack of self care, burnout are a few most common ones. I would have liked to be a little deeper. I grew tired of hear An important subject. This is an easy read. Susan Carrell draws out family dynamics, cultural underpinnings, religious dogmas, professionall profiles that gets people in conflict with themselves and results in toxic Guilt. People usually will find themselves as pseudo-victims or in a rescuer role and they get stuck in unhealthy behavioral habits. People-pleasing, poor boundaries, lack of self care, burnout are a few most common ones. I would have liked to be a little deeper. I grew tired of hearing so many little case studies. Story after story, which they served as good exemples but it felt shallow. Considering how many people are "nice", "complaint", good girls, good boys, good parents for the sake of the 4th commandment it is defenitely a condition that affects almost all of us. That's why I craved more, and the author gives some practical steps such as caring for one-self, setting boundaries, pursue what one desires, sayng no. But, again, they seem like common sense approaches which they are unvaluable for sure, it's just that it is easier said than done. How one steps out of this endless chain of self-abuse is a real challenge.

    Complete religious propaganda. Very disappointed that the religious undertone was not even suggested in the book summary. While it does address toxic guilt from a psychologic perspective, it is mostly religious-based, which is not helpful for a LOT of people. I also didn't appreciate that the "toxic guilt" situations were boiled down to 8 different scenarios. Life is far more complicated than the author seems to realize! Complete religious propaganda.

    I am cashig in my guilt trip miles for a new life. I was constantly trying to please those who cared little about what I wanted or needed in my life. The book helped me move on to a new way of living my life . Not that it will be a smooth transition but it will be my life and no one else's life. I am cashig in my guilt trip miles for a new life.

    Good book for giving overview I read this book to gain insight on myself and my patterns and how to get out of my own way. Although somewhat from a religious perspective I found the book helpful

    This is a Christian book. Would've been nice to mention that on the cover somewhere. I couldn't relate to anything since the focus is on religion, children, partners, homosexuality and abortion.

    This really helped me identify a problem and let a lot of things go. If you’re thinking about reading it, you probably should. It’s light reading but profound.

    In the first chapters of the book Susan tells the reader of clients who have religious parents who dictate their lives and tells them not to listen to it, to be their own person and that pushing god on people is wrong. Then the last two chapters Susan shoves god down the readers throat. This is not a book of self help, it is a religious rant.

    Very good tips on dealing with toxic guilt in a simplified five-step manner, but the Christian overtones are a little overbearing leaving me to rate this four instead of five stars.

    I didn't really find what I was looking for here. She would explain what I believe toxic guilt and appropriate guilt mean, but then her examples didn't coincide with my own beliefs.

    A lot of useful general advice, but a bit light on specifics of how to implement the strategies mentioned. Still a decent read on the topic.
