    Where does Safe People: How to Find Relationships That Are Good for You and Avoid Those That Aren't rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book was INCREDIBLE and I would rank it above the books I have listened to so far.


    What other book might you compare Safe People: How to Find Relationships That Are Good for You and Avoid Those That Aren't to and why?

    Boundaries is a good book to start with then this one.


    Have you listened to any of Dick Fredricks’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This one is just as good.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    An idea that I remembered from the book is even if I'm not at fault I can create a safe place for the offender by offering my sympathy but knowing when to draw the line.


    Any additional comments?

    Make sure your boundaries is in place first.

    Story
    "Faith-based advice for Christians"
    Would you try another book from Henry Cloud and John Townsend and/or Dick Fredricks?

    No. As a secular individual, faith-based self-help books are not for me. If your faith is important to you, this book would be too!


    What could Henry Cloud and John Townsend have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    For whatever reason, I did not pick up on the book's huge reliance on God and the Christian faith in the description. For secular or agnostic individuals, I feel this book to be of little value.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The performance was technically good.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Safe People: How to Find Relationships That Are Good for You and Avoid Those That Aren't?

    It would probably be impossible to edit the book given my particular belief system.


    Any additional comments?

    I published this review not as a criticism of the book or its contents, but rather to provide a filter for an informed buying decision.

    "Well Written, To the Point, Excellent Points"
    Would you listen to Safe People: How to Find Relationships That Are Good for You and Avoid Those That Aren't again? Why?

    Yes. Chopped full of very helpful insight and information. Valid and reliable source of information.


    What did you learn from Safe People: How to Find Relationships That Are Good for You and Avoid Those That Aren't that you would use in your daily life?

    How to cut threw the crap and effectively identify and validate what you either have been intentionally confused about or what you already knew to be true. Validation and empowerment.

    "Too Religious!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    A potentially good book spoiled by the author's self indulgence by continually referencing the bible and 'the word of god'. Sadly if you are not a religuos person or atheist, then you will not relate to this book and find yourself rolling your eyes every 5 minutes, waiting for the narrator to get past the god reference and get to the advice bit.

    I must say however, i have also read Necessary Endings, by one of the authors and thisis a completely different book. No religous connetotions adn very sound real world advice.


    What was most disappointing about Henry Cloud and John Townsend ’s story?

    Constant reference to religion


    What didn’t you like about Dick Fredricks’s performance?

    he's OK a little bit old sounding.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    no
