About the Author
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
there is content missing out of this book. I’m really upset about it because I want to know what is missing. Page 84 starts out mid sentence from apparently content that is not in this book. I wrote the publisher but got no response.
The thing I liked the best in this book was a long check list of the areas where people have boundaries that can be violated. On the list was clothes. When I was growing up, my sister frequently took my clothes without asking. I had always been mad at her for doing that when we were growing up. Now I see that behavior for exactly what it was. I think going through the "list" and thinking back on your own life is a good exercise. It helps you see where you boundaries have been violated in the past or perhaps the present.

This book seems to be mostly saying that healthy boundaries are good and necessary over and over again in different ways from different aspects of the therapeutic process.
Any 'how' was dealt with largely through descriptions of therapeutic stages and processes that you might do in group therapy or in a one to one counselling situation. There are lots of references to the author's other books. So the strongest message I received was a) buy more of my books and b) pay for therapy.
There's a lot of reference to faith in god or a higher power. As an atheist I found this to be unhelpful and off-putting. I fully disagree and object to the notion that emotional health is dependent upon a relationship with a supernatural being. In fact it's a counterproductive idea to me.
I would have appreciated more anecdotes and subtle illustrative examples of healthy boundaries at work.
No mention on Amazon is that the emphasis of this book is Christocentric.
There are good tools and good insights in this book that make it a must have. Wish I had read it much sooner.
Great book . clearly defined , easy to read and dip in and out of enjoying it a great deal , quite an eye opener!
