About the Author

Basically, setting boundaries is communicating to others how you want to be treated. Enforcing those boundaries can sometimes be uncomfortable, as you do have stand up to someone who isn’t respecting you. This book helps you understand how to approach setting and enforcing boundaries, particularly with unhealthy people who would rather exert control over you.
There is no religious component to the books, other than addressing what appropriate boundaries should be with people in positions of power, like clergy. This was a positive thing for me, although there are religious based books on boundaries if that’s your preference.
I enjoy the realistic examples with detailed explanations that breakdown what is occurring in the communication. This book is very user friendly and set in a conversational tone. No need to have a degree to grasp the concepts here. It reminds me of the accessibility and fun of Brene Brown's books. Highly recommended!
There's nothing new or exciting in this book, and the revelation that it's all coming from a Christian viewpoint is not fully revealed until half-way through the book. I've thrown it out. I can't even donate it.

For example a quote from the book 'if you're suprised that French Women waited seventy years after the women in Wyoming to have a political voice, or that Indian and Brazilian women had a ballet nearly forty years before Swiss women, it only shows how little you know about women's history'
That's pretty niche knowledge.
It is written by an American therapist so there were some scenarios written that didn’t make a lot of sense to a UK reader (at times was a little irritating, but that’s a personal view), overall it doesn’t detract from the learning.
Also paper quality needs very good, very flimsy compared to normal book pages!
The author is a very experienced counsellor and this book offers insight and a practical guide for every day situations and different types of relationships with others and even with the world. The author is compassionate and no-nonsense at the same time. I appreciate that the author really breaks boundary issues down on particular subjects. Maybe some readers might find that too obvious, but for people who grew up with no healthy boundaries it is absolutely necessary for the author to do this.
I found this book to be a valuable resource for working on my recovery and I know it is a book I will go back to again for reference. I hope this review helps other people on their own recovery journeys.
