Worth hearing again and again for good reason.

My 3rd or 4th listen. Refreshers help to decide how my personal boundaries are shifting toward self-love. I like the direction my life is taking and appreciate the ability to see how much I have improved, learned and healed. What I once thought was normal is so sad. I do not consider my years with someone whom likely is pathological, as wasted time. I know my story is mine to, one day, share and show others the way to self-love and a clear mind, likely with titles within Audible.com books.
The content is concise and relevant. Others' writings and ideas shared are well cited. I like that.
The reader exhibits nuances in her voice appropriately. She is not distracting from the content. Bold voice

Good starting point, covers the basics well

This is a good book for anyone wanting to know how narcissistic/ sociopathic/ psychopathic abuse may effect relationships and how to hold your boundaries.

Survivors of this abuse may also want to dig deeper. Those who do might benefit from a long form work such as one of several books by Jackson MacKenzie.

To the Point

This audiobook is a concise, clear, and useful outline of this essential subject. Sometimes the absence of clear personal boundaries in one's life is a cultural or socioeconomic issue. People who are very poor and raised in one common room tend to have weak limits in many respects. Weak boundaries may be essential for their survival but can be highly offensive in a "normal" socioeconomic/cultural environment. Would be interesting to hear the author address this subject.

Spot on!

Short, sweet, spot on and absolutely required reading!

I just learned that firm boundaries provide too much of a challenge for manipulators- generally prompting them to move on. Manipulators aren’t looking for a challenge, they are looking for a victim. Tired of being a victim? Learn about boundaries- and then get some.

Review

Adleyn's book is beautifully written. Everything she talks about makes complete sense. I wish I had read it before I entered a deeply wounding and abusive relationship.
