Yes!! This is an absolutely great book. I read it years ago. About a year ago, a friend mentioned it and shared her experience with it so we decided to do a bookstudy. This book has great realistic examples and advice on setting boundaries with family, friends, children, coworkers, and even yourself. It even gives biblical scripture as a reference. This is a great book. It helped me a lot!!!
I can't think of another Boundaries book that was a precise and beneficial as this one.
When Sherri finally got some peace of mind by giving other people rightful responsibility for their lives.
I really like this book but get out your notepad because you will need to really take time to digest the wealth of revelation in this book. It's unbelievable how this book not only reveals the reasons and solutions to other peoples behavior issues but also highlights your own strengths and weaknesses. I like books that not only tell it how it is but also tell you how it's supposed to be based on the truth in God's word. I love this book. I will have to listen to it over and over. I highly recommend this book.
I listened to almost all of Part one, and then just decided/realized that I was not getting much out of the book. The narration was just so-so, and the book did not flow well. The examples were less than real for me. This may be a book that is better read than listened to.
Let me start by saying that both my wife and I met at a Baptist University and have Minors in Religious Studies.
I have never reviewed a book before but felt compelled to because of our inability to complete this book. We travel a lot and have listened to over 150 Audible Audio Books and this is the first we have been unable to complete. We heard about this book from Dave Ramsey and know it would be useful but, we cannot get past all the Biblical references. Trust me, we enjoy Biblical references, the references are so over the top that on MULTIPLE occasions my wife would turn to me and say, what was the lesson we were trying to learn? (After 10 different verses, I can't remember what the point was either). It's really absurd. I can't stress how difficult it is to follow. Perhaps in a written form it is easier, but, I can honestly say, this is one book I was really looking forward to and I am tremendously disappointed I can't bear to finish it.
I'm sad to say I cannot recommend it.
This is a must have book... I especially enjoyed the Audio version. The man reading the book did an excellent job. Very easy to listen to and not only entertaining and humorous but very helpful and practical... I hightly, highly recommend this Audio Book and give it a full 5 star rating...
I was very much looking forward to this book. It contains valuable and useful advice, stories, and examples of how boundaries are crucial to our well-being and healthy functioning as humans. However, at one point I found myself wondering if this was actually a bible study guide. Although I can respect the authors' spiritual/religious beliefs I think that referencing every statement to a passage in the bible overwhelms the simplicity of the message (regarding boundaries). I come from a christian background but found this a bit intrusive and off-key, so I am not sure how people of other faiths or who are not particularly religious would react. Does this mean that boundaries cannot be available to them?

Go for it? Whoa! Not so quick. Listen to this book for a prospective. Rather than "Go for it" one might choose "Move On"
Definitely can re-voice characters in the book. It is a worthwhile investment for a professional narrator....unless you are Frank McCourt.
Good stuff...can't unpack it all in one listening
Organized in chapters to GOTO or back to.
Very boring and advice is all based on common sense
Relax and not be so judgmental.
His voice is very annoying!
Disappointment. I heard it was a good book.
Skip this one and purchase another uplifting motivational book instead.
