Excellent book!

Excellent book! For those of us who will bend over backwards for anyone. This book teaches how to notice people who will take advantage of your big heart and what boundaries need to be set for certain people in your life. It changed the way I see all of the relationships in my life.

Great tips.

Those who have been victims of any kind of abuse, are often the folks who have boundary issues. Their life experience has taught them that inappropriate line crossing is part of daily life. It is a hard lesson to UN-learn. This book is a tool to help folks with boundary issues to learn where the line is and how to defend it.

I wish I would have had this earlier in my life, but it's never too late to take control. One of the most helpful books I've ever listen. A must listen for everyone.

Well Summarized.

Great book. I have found this to be very helpful in my becoming more secure in the decisions I make, and more okay with not feeling I have to "be there" for other people regardless of what I am sincerely able to do.

This is a great book.

I wish they taught boundaries as part of school, church and regular family values. This is a great book, helping people to say no and to accept that other people have the right to say no.

Amazing.

So few of us really understand how to set healthy boundaries. This is one significant step toward finding freedom within our own lives.

This book was so helpful.

This book was so helpful in identifying dysfunctional communication and relational habits. It helps better understand your control is within self and maintaining appropriate and healthy boundaries helps you maintain this control of self and understanding healthier habits for building bonds with friends and family.

The content of this book is very good.

The content of this book is very good and has a lot of good tips. Just be warned that when they say it's a mini-book, they mean it. It's smaller than a credit card. This has some advantages though, in that it's very portable.

This book is wonderful.

This book is wonderful. I was struggling with some relationships in my life and I couldn't tell if I was over reacting or if my feelings were justifiable. This book is great because it addresses many issues and helps a person say, no or how to handle difficult relationships. It has helped me to not feel bad about things or make a decision based on other people. It explains things so that it makes sense.

This book is wonderful

I was quick to blame others for their deficiencies without doing some self reflection. I had no idea that my boundaries were the problem. This book is wonderful. I’m not religious & I was able to look past the religious aspects of the book to get to the true message

One of the best book

One of the best books I have ever listen on keeping boundaries and learning about co-dependency. Didn't know when I bought it that it was Christian based which made it even better. Would recommend this book to anyone looking to establish healthy boundaries for themselves.
