In a nut shell it's important to identify people who are going to help you grow into the person God wants you to be. The book helps one identify safe and unsafe traits in people. Ultimately safe people produce good fruit in your relationships, and unsafe people the opposite. This book is not only for so called 'good' people to avoid 'bad' people, but also 'bad' people to identify their destructive traits and become good people. Excellent book, but one does need to be a christian to appreciate, in that, non christian could get wound up by this book. For me this was a God send.
-very good information, but I had no idea it was not complete from the book. I wanted to use it for recovery group discussion along with the workbook and it was difficult if not impossible.
This was very helpful. It is full of common sense and sound Biblical advice.
"Not the complete book"
I have the book and needed to read it for an assignment. I purchased the audible and was surprised that it was not every word, but did have the main points.
Great auidobook I recommend it for anyone having or has had trouble in any form of friendships or relationships.
"I've Been Picking Unsafe People Unaware"
I bought this audiobook on a hunch I might need to work on myself in this area. Wow! I didn't realize just how much I struggle with character discernment. Great book, very practical, logical and well written. Cloud and Townsend are excellent authors. There's so much good material here I may have to order the hard copy to study it again. I highly recommend this book.
I think this should be a required reading for every person entering High School. I found it amazingly effective and one that could very well save the pain of being with unsafe people. I purchased the book and the workbook so that I can educate my children to save them some heart ache along the way.
"Way too brief!"
Great info, but need more! now I'm going to listen to the UN-abridged version. (-:
"Gave Substance To My Practice"
Empirical pain via the hard knocks of life has taught me a few things about myself. Two failed marriages and in a dying third, I now have substantial context and Scriptures to try to save my marriage with better tools and understanding. The authors' BOUNDARIES IN MARRIAGE book was equally helpful.
Yes. I never read the print version. I'm so glad it's on audible. So very helpful to me as I live my life
Helps me to develop the discernment I need
Teaches me to become a Safe Person.
"Discerning, Insightful, Judicious"
It's beneficial for me to be able to listen as I have more processing freedom.
There is nothing I did like about this book.
Drs. Cloud and Townsend were careful to be articulate and clear in their performance of the material in the book.
The idea that I will remember from this book is the significance of emotional safety among us.
I am highly recommend this book to better understand relationship dynamics and to help become a safe person for others and to be able to identify what a safe person looks like.
