From the Back Cover
Too many of us have invested ourselves into relationships that left us deeply wounded. We've been abandoned or taken advantage of, and left with little to show for what we've given. We've lost our sense of security and personal value in the process. And what's worse, we tend to either repeat the same mistakes of judgment over and over . . . Or else lock the doors of our hearts entirely and throw away the key. Why do we choose the wrong people to get involved with? Is it possible to change? And if so, where does one begin? Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend offer solid guidance for making safe choices in relationships, from friendships to romance. They help identify the nurturing people we all need in our lives, as well as ones we need to learn to avoid. Safe People will help you to recognize 20 traits of relationally untrustworthy people. Discover what makes some people relationally safe, and how to avoid unhealthy entanglements. You'll learn about things within yourself that jeopardize your relational security. And you'll find out what to do and what not to do to develop a balanced, healthy approach to relationships.

It's a very comprehensive study of what makes people dangerous to others, what makes us pick the wrong people, how to identify and pick the right people and when the relationships are worth repairing vs. severing. It makes you look at yourself more than anything to make sure you fix the problem within first.
It is geared towards Christians and has a lot of Bible references, but whether or not you take the Bible to heart, the book is completely applicable to anybody who has ever went through a bad relationships and wants to make sure it never happens again.
