I wish I had read or listened to this book sooner. I love Cloud and Townsend and there are character definitions in this book that are very revealing. I hope to learn and grow from this wisdom
Absolutely! I find their writings easy to read, yet very insightful
This book was INCREDIBLE and I would rank it above the books I have listened to so far.
Boundaries is a good book to start with then this one.
This one is just as good.
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.
Make sure your boundaries is in place first.
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!
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.
The performance was technically good.
It would probably be impossible to edit the book given my particular belief system.
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.
Yes. Chopped full of very helpful insight and information. Valid and reliable source of information.
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.
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.
Constant reference to religion
he's OK a little bit old sounding.
