Full Disclosure: This is a Very Christian Book

I got this book on the recommendation of a friend without really reading the description. I did not know quite how Christian this book was before I bought it. I think many of the insights in the book are valuable, but the authors seem to assume you are enthusiastically Christian to begin with. As a non-christian, I found the constant Bible references, moral certainties, and ad librem assertions to distract from the self-help value of the book. Caveat Emptor.

Sound Principles but rather elementary

My therapist recommended this a long time ago. I can see that we have come very far because these principles are 2nd hand to me me now.

book is okay. dick Fredrick's sounds goofy

material in the book is okay. Dick Frederick's, the reader on Audible, sounds like something cartoonish from the 50s. A sort of Mufasa want to be.

Base on No science but fiction

It is very disappointing to see such a book does not use scientific knowledge but fictions to explain a serious matter.

I was excited and disappointed

I’m not Christian but I thought the book was going to be helpful anyways so I give it a chance. Sadly all the solutions proposed to help you identify and avoid not safe people was pray pray and find help in someone else, I thought the book was going to help me to do it myself since I’m not good at reading characters and that’s why I keep giving chances to unsafe people how am I suppose to find and trust someone else to get through it? Makes no sense. The book will just suggest you to find a support group in a church. That’s it. So if you’re like me, not into church people because I feel I’m in a cult then you’re lost with this book and Worse than before I start reading it because I can see now all the problems and why I attract those unsafe people but I cannot solve it by myself because being self sufficient is NOT safe.
