Christians often focus so much on being loving and giving that they forget their own limitations.
Have you ever found yourself wondering:
Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend give you biblically-based answers to these and other tough questions, showing you how to set healthy boundaries with parents, spouses, children, friends, coworkers, and even yourself.
You'll see vital principles of boundaries at work as Drs. Cloud and Townsend take you through a day in the life of "Sherrie", first as she lives with almost no boundaries, then as she begins to apply proper boundaries with others in her life.

This is one of the best books I have ever read. (listened to) I would recomend to everyone.
Yes, but it is way too long for that
Please listen to this book. If everyone in the world listened to this the world would be a much better place!!
Because of the nature of this non-fiction category, I believe if is better to have the hard copy for highlighting and ease in finding and remembering significant facts and descriptions in the material.
I have not read the printed version of this book.
It gives very pointed and practical advice about creating and maintaining boundaries. Too many references to the bible but the advice is sound.
It was a good audio book overall
Yes it had so much info, need to listen again a few times to implement it in my life.
well, I dont write reviews..but I am so angry..Im writing this one. This book is written in a very very religious tone, full of bible quotes and examples.. so if thats your thing great. But if not, do yourself a favor and pass this one by. I thought this was a self help/self discovery book, but it is so convoluted and full of religious overtones, it is absolutely miserable to pull any sane advice out of it.
All that aside, the other problem is the reader sounds like he is reading excerpts to a class full of kindergardeners in his best Sesame Street voice. It absolutely made my blood boil. If there is any good advice contained in this book, you will have to wade through all the religion and get past the annoying narrator to find it..I just threw $26 out the window...
Life-saver! Should be given to everyone entering a church building or psychiatrist's office seeking healing and deliverance!
I truly appreciate Cloud & Townsend in their satellite broadcasts, and I was enthusiastic to pick up this book. However, it was one that I struggle to stick with in audio format.
When topics are close to what I accept directly, it is difficult for me to latch on to a thread and take something away... it is then that I prefer printed books, so that I can read more deeply, go back to a section easily and underline or make notes. This could be one of those books for me - I struggle to keep my thoughts on topic even while the subject seems important.
I could appreciate the combination of psychology and human development with biblical scripture. The balance between the two methods helped to identify the healing process of developing boundaries as a spiritual process as well as a relationship process.
I would have casted additional narrators for the female portrayals
I would like to thank the authors of this book. I never considered the out of control aspects of my life as my own responsibility. I am practicing what I've learned, and though it is difficult, it has been necessary. In today's society I think this book is a must read (listen) for everybody.
