    "AWESOME dating guidelines"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Boundaries in Dating to be better than the print version?

    I LOVED this book and wished that I had found it earlier in life, because it probably would have saved me a lot of heartache. I plan to have my daughters read this before they leave for college. My boyfriend and I went through the book together while in the beginning stages of our relationship, and this has been the best relationship thus far for both of us. We have both recommended this book to others that have not had much luck in the dating department, and they too have had nothing but good things to say. Although there were several things that I already knew, just had not been serious about putting into practice I did have several aha moments. This is definitely one that you should check out...you won't be disappointed.

    "Wish I'd read this sooner!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes definitely. This is great, practical advice that should be compulsory reading for everyone. It teaches how to set boundaries, not only in dating but in life.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It's not a story book so no characters.


    Which character – as performed by Jonathan Petersen – was your favorite?

    It's not a story book so no characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me nod in agreement so many times. It also helped me see things very clearly and understand behavior and why relationships failed in the past.


    Any additional comments?

    The book is really well written and the Doctors give so many real life examples to illustrate the learning. I really enjoyed it. I'm going to read all their other books. It offers great Bible based advice, without being judgmental or "preachy". Excellent read!

    "Good stuff"

    Awesome book. So much learned from my past relationships that I never realized. One thing though, the reader says "mature" the old time proper way, which is correct for sure, but SUPER annoying. Who likes to be proper? Ha. Great stuff though.

    "How to be SUCCESSFUL in dating!!!"

    This book had to be sent to me by God. I had no idea that I would relate to the examples used in this book so much. The advice is good, healthy, doable, practical, biblical based advice on how having correct boundaries can make your dating experiences better and more successful. I wish that I had read this book a long time ago. I am putting this advice into action in my new relationship and we are both reaping the benefits already!

    "Eye-opening info"

    Really good read for singles, but there's good stuff in here too for people with troubled relationships. A must read.

    "Packed with good Godly advice"

    I am a single male age 23, who has never dated before. This book has given me some good healthy God fearing advice, that I think will be helpful to me when I start dating women.
    The book is definitely directed towards followers of Jesus, but is still packed with advice that would also seem logical to people of other religions.
    I would read this again when I find myself dating, since a lot of the information is a little bit hard to relate to without being able to mirror in your own present dating experience.
    One of the best things about the book is that it is so full of real life stories that can explain their concepts practically.
    This is a minor thing, but I find some of the references to the bible verses used to reinforce, that their statements are biblical, a bit weak. I believe that their advice is true, wise and rooted in love for God and others, so for me I would rather be without some of the bible references that don't really fit in.
    I find the speaker easy to understand and fine to listen to.

    "Great advice, weird narrator"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Wise, Godly, down-to-earth advice from a psychotherapeutic perspective.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Boundaries in Dating?

    Loved all the personal examples.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Why did the narrator have to say matoor and imatoor instead of mature and immature? Why? Seems silly but the word is used very frequently throughout the book so it really grates on you after a while.

    "Churchy"
    Would you try another book from Henry Cloud and John Townsend and/or Jonathan Petersen?

    I want my credit back. This book is useless and more about god then boundaries


    What didn’t you like about Jonathan Petersen’s performance?

    Like a dull robot.


    What character would you cut from Boundaries in Dating?

    God

    "Boring"

    I could not get through the first chapter. I felt like I was listening to an old preacher.

    "Bible-bashing dating advice"
    What would have made Boundaries in Dating better?

    Taking the church, god and bible out of it. I am certain there are plenty of people out there who lead perfectly good lives and date in a reasonable way without being bashed over the head with the bible.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I would have kept it if it was a non-religious psychological/self-improvement advice.


    Any additional comments?

    Why not try "The tale of two brains" (male brain v. female brain, find on YouTube and listen past the churchly remarks - a blast of comedy with the same message - and it's free)
