I am so thankful this book crossed my path.

I am so thankful this book crossed my path. The complicated soup between who I am as a mother, daughter and wife has always been hard for me to navigate. The experience or feeling like I'm running on empty is one I really resonate with. It's just plain exhausting to try and be all things to all people. And yet, here this book is, with wisdom and insight and easy strategies to help work through events that in the past have felt really hard to deal with. The one thing I never want to do is pass on to my kids my inner issues and that motivates me to work harder to find solutions. This book is an easy read and is so helpful/practical that anyone who was raised with a "less than perfect" childhood can benefit from it.
This book could fundamentally change how you perceive yourself and others.

Dr. Jonice Webb's work invariably makes me think of Howard Gardner's groundbreaking book Creating Minds which describes how rare individuals perceive something previously unseen and, as a result, a formerly hidden truth is made visible to everyone. Dr. Jonice Webb's writings and podcasts do just that with the formerly unrecognized reality of Childhood Emotional Neglect, or CEN. About three years ago I read Running on Empty and it answered important questions about my psychological patterns that I had never thought to ask. The book made me feel that she could somehow listen to unspoken thoughts inside my head and identify the gaps in my self-knowledge. Now, her follow-up book Running on Empty No More has achieved the same effect but has a broader scope to include relationships with partners, parents, and children. Both books are well organized and written in clear, easy-to-understand language. As a novelist, I'm particularly impressed by her use of vignettes--brief fictional narratives that on first reading appear to describe simple, ordinary human interactions but, with Dr. Webb's analyses, reveal profound insights into the damaging effects of CEN. The vignettes are simple devices yet have enormous teaching power. I give her books the highest rating for both readability and content and would give the same rating to her blog posts, podcasts, interviews, and other commentaries on psychological wellbeing. Highly recommended for anyone who feels--or is close to someone else who feels--that "something important is missing" from his or her life.
IF YOU FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE WITH EMOTIONAL INTIMACY, THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU.

I'm still in the process of reading this book and am ready to give my 5-star review. I read a blog of Dr. Webb's in a mental health email that I get. The subject was Childhood Emotional Neglect. As I read the blog, I felt in tune with everything I read and ordered her first book, "Running on Empty." Even if you think you had a great childhood like I did, if you were emotionally neglected, that childhood can be the root cause of adult dysfunction later in life as I have found out. I have spent the last few nights reading "Running on Empty No More" with tears streaming down my face. It hit the bull's eye for all my adult issues, avoidant behavior and damaged relationships. Dr. Webb is a brilliant genius for writing these books. The concept of CEN needs to be taught to every licensed therapist and counselor and also needs to be added to the curriculum for future mental health professionals. I predict that we will have a lot more cases of CEN since the evolution of technology, Facebook, etc. I see so many neglected babies and children out and about while mom and dad have their noses in their phones instead of interacting with their children. I highly recommend this book to all without question. I consider Dr. Webb my new best friend right now.
I think this follow up book is even more useful than the first one

I think this follow up book is even more useful than the first one. It feels like there are even more concrete steps and great advice for how to deal with your adult relationships. If you think emotional neglect has affected you, get both for sure.
A little empty on specifics

Good ideas and worth reviewing but the author didn’t provide enough practical explanation. There were a few vignettes from clients but not much that was more than a description. I would have liked to see more actionable specifics even for a therapy approach.
