Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Dr. David J. Lieberman introduces a wonderful right-to-the-point mini audiobook that tells listeners how to put an end to boundary issues - once and for all!

A work colleague with whom you have only a casual relationship asks you to co-sign a loan for him...your neighbor asks you to keep her antisocial, flea-riddled cat for the weekend—again. We've all faced sticky situations like these—unreasonable demands on our time and inappropriate requests from family, friends, co-workers, or casual acquaintances. We want to say "No". We have the right to say "No"—always. And yet we don't. Some people will take "No" for an answer, and that's the end of it. But some people don't.

What do you do when the person on the other end of your "No" flat out refuses to accept your "No"? You'll discover exactly what to say as well as learn the underlying psychology that motivates them to always ask, and you to always give in! Plus, you'll learn step-by-step what you can do about it.

Not so good

What would have made Setting Boundaries with Difficult People better?

This book is so short and unhelpful.

What was most disappointing about David J. Lieberman’s story?

Too short and no help.

How could the performance have been better?

More specific about how to deal with difficult people

More Christian Propaganda

interesting topic, but couldn't get past all the Jesus talk and perspective. Just because you are a jesus freak doesn't mean everyone is. Please label your books so I can avoid them.

Smart, insightful, and simple.

I would have liked more content, but perhaps that would not have been necessary. I listened to it twice, and will certainly incorporate it into my office life.

Simple, but maybe too simple if you need a book on it in the first place

If you need a book on how to set boundaries, it's likely because you don't feel worthy of making them. He does address this, but he makes it seem like you should just be able to change now that you know better. Not sure that's how people actually work. But the principals are right on.

Wish it was longer

I thought it was really great information, just wish it were longer, with more insight to gather

Just a few tips

After giving some light weight psychological background, only a few, surprisingly unspecific and meek, application suggestions are offered.
