Publisher's Summary

The instant New York Times best seller

End the struggle, speak up for what you need, and experience the freedom of being truly yourself.

Healthy boundaries. We all know we should have them - in order to achieve work/life balance, cope with toxic people, and enjoy rewarding relationships with partners, friends, and family. But what do "healthy boundaries" really mean - and how can we successfully express our needs, say "no", and be assertive without offending others?

Licensed counselor, sought-after relationship expert, and one of the most influential therapists on Instagram Nedra Glover Tawwab demystifies this complex topic for today's world. In a relatable and inclusive tone, Set Boundaries, Find Peace presents simple-yet-powerful ways to establish healthy boundaries in all aspects of life. Rooted in the latest research and best practices used in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), these techniques help us identify and express our needs clearly and without apology - and unravel a root problem behind codependency, power struggles, anxiety, depression, burnout, and more.

Critic Reviews

"Tawwab debuts with a comprehensive guide on how to understand and establish interpersonal boundaries.... She identifies six types of boundaries - physical, sexual, intellectual, emotional, material, and time - and dispenses tips on how to uphold personal limits.... Listeners who follow Tawwab on social media and those who find setting boundaries especially difficult will appreciate the advice." (Publishers Weekly)

Set Boundaries, Find Peace breaks down the what, why, and how of boundaries in a clear and compassionate way, leaving you confident, empowered, and prepared to tackle those tough conversations.” (Melissa Urban, co-founder and CEO of Whole30)

“This is the boundary bible. Nedra teaches us not only how to set healthy boundaries but to be clear about our feelings and intentions. Finding peace requires showing up - Nedra has written the blueprint on how to not only show up but also do the work.” (Alexandra Elle, author of After the Rain)

Excellent concise self help book

If you’re familiar with a 12 step program, particularly Al-Anon, much of the information will not be brand new to you. However, the way it is presented is fantastic. This is very easy to understand, with actual things you can do, examples of what to say, and a concise summary of every important message and any other self-help book has stated. Highly recommended if you feel anxious, overwhelmed, resentful, or otherwise feel you could be happier and life could be better

Your Opinion is the Only Valid One

Tawwab gives some good advice in her book. However it leaves me wondering, what if my life problems are my own making. Tawwab yearns to give you an out on this moral question.

Preaching personal assertiveness is beneficial. But the author continually falls in line with the common idea that everything negative in life is the culmination of outside factors. This gives the reader unrealistic problem solving advice when it comes to actually helping them.

I already love it!

First, I love when books are narrated by the author. I'm always happy to support black authors, but this particular book is so relatable. She touches on cultural nuances that I just haven't seen in other books on this topic. It's like she was talking about my life. Well written and narrated.

To much I

The only thing I could hear was I. probably the content of the book is good. But the author talks a lot of herself and that made it hard to listen to.

Difficult to Listen Too

I did not care much for the narration. I am sure the book is good. I listened to about 2 hrs before I gave up. Maybe reading the book would be easier for me.

Everyone benefits

This book is a game changer. I feel so grateful to be listening to it. I am fantasizing about what could be if everyone in the US read, took to heart and practiced the messages from Nedra GloverTewwab. Thank you so much Nedra.
