Keith identifies attempts to control others as a major cause of relationship failure – in marriages and families, with friends and within organizations. Unfortunately, the primary symptom of the “control disease” is denial, in which a person cannot see that he or she is controlling in a marriage or other close relationship. Keith believes that this invisible compulsion to control others and the relationship failures it leads to, set up much of the pain that leads to alcoholism, codependence, and other addictive behaviors. The book describes this excruciating and seemingly universal condition with clarity and compassion, and offers a way out, suggesting new ways to approach broken relationships.
