NEW YORK — Following on the monumental success of her first book, "Women Who Love Too Much," Santa Barbara family therapist Robin Norwood has signed with Pocket Books to produce a sequel.
The new book, titled "Letters From Women Who Love Too Much: A Look at Relationship Addiction and Recovery," will be published in January as the first title in Pocket Books' new hardcover line.
Norwood's earlier book, first issued in hardcover by Jeremy P. Tarcher Inc., shot overnight onto best-seller lists across the country. With more than 2.3-million paperback copies in print after 26 printings from Pocket Books, the self-help guide to ending "the destructive cycle of addictive love relationships" has remained on the New York Times best-seller list for 68 weeks. It has been No. 1 for 43 of those weeks.
Publishers Weekly named "Women Who Love Too Much" as the top-selling paperback of 1986 at the two largest bookselling chains, B. Dalton Bookseller and Waldenbooks. The book soon achieved cult-like status, spawning "Women Who Love Too Much" support groups all around America.
