Awesome book to know how to get the book "Boundaries" into action in your life. I needed this to learn confront and most important to learn to reconcile , with boundaries .
Very basic commonsense stuff. Unfortunately also contained constant and totally pointless and irritating references to God and Jesus.
"Did not like religious references"
I purchased this book in error as a friend had suggested a book by a similar name, however when she was recalling the name of the book she got the name wrong and suggested this one by accident.I did enjoy most of the content of the book however I found that it had too many religious references to Jesus and the Apostles and their various stories.I am not familiar with the Author and had I known that the content had religious references as a way of explaining the various scenarios outlined in the book I would not have purchased it.
I liked hearing about the various ways to communicate the same thing but come across differently.
I am not familiar with the Author
I would not be interested, there are references to other books by the same Author mentioned in this book that cover some areas in more depth but I would not be interested.
The description gives no reference that various religious books and stories are used as a way to explain and elaborate the various questions and scenarios.
