The premise here is that people all have many demands on their time and that by setting boundaries they may protect their time and energy for the things that matter most. Being in complete agreement with this idea, the first thing this reviewer should say is that she doesn't have the time to read a whole book about setting boundaries. Although important, this topic could have been adequately covered as a couple of chapters in a larger book on life management. Mental health counselor Katherine (Boundaries) discusses setting boundaries with friends, relatives, lovers, and exes. Other reasonable topics include anger, intimacy, sex, and divorce. Among the more frivolous chapters are those covering tidiness, food, Internet, and therapist boundaries. The author does give helpful examples of each type of boundary, with advice on where to draw the line. The topics seem so specialized, though, that audience appeal is limited. Purchase is warranted only for extensive self-help collections.AKathy Ingels Helmond, Indianapolis-Marion Cty. P.L.

I'm only half-way through the book, and I'm already responding to issues differently.
As I read, I am awed that the writer, Anne Katherine, had the understanding to put such a book together, and in such intelligent order. If one issue doesn't pertain to you, the reader, or even those you know and love, skip it. I think most people will find a chapter or two that really hits home, and it may provoke thought and feeling, and maybe we can then make the world a better place, relationships will be stronger, and life will have more meaning. I gave this book five stars because I know I am going to be carrying it around and reading it from time to time, until the pages are all bent and torn.
The paperback version is only 287 pages and fits comfortably in the hand.
