Publishers Description Good Fences Make Good Neighbors In the perennial favorite "Boundaries," Anne Katherine introduced the concept and importance of personal limits. In "Where to Draw the Line," she takes the next step with a practical guide to establishing and maintaining healthy boundaries in a wide range of situations. With every encounter, we either demonstrate that we'll protect what we value or that we'll give ourselves away. Healthy boundaries preserve our integrity. Unlike defenses, which isolate us from our true selves and from those we love, boundaries filter out harm. This book provides the tools and insights needed to create boundaries so that we can allow time and energy for the things that matter -- and helps break down limiting defenses that stunt personal growth. Focusing on every facet of daily life -- from friendships and sexual relationships to dress and appearance to money, food, and psychotherapy -- Katherine presents case studies highlighting the ways in which individuals violate their own boundaries or let other people breach them. Using real-life examples, from self-sacrificing mothers to obsessive neat freaks, she offers specific advice on making choices that balance one's own needs with the needs of others. Boundaries are the unseen structures that support healthy, productive lives. "Where to Draw the Line" shows readers how to strengthen them and hold them in place every day.

Poor service. Mar 15, 2008
I never received the book and don`t know how to deal with it. So, I never got to read it. Will not order from you again as I wasted my money.
Healthy Boundaries Sep 14, 2007
This book is very well-written in easy-to-understand language. After reading this, I have a very clear idea of healthy boundaries and am now able to discern when boundaries are being violated. Definitely worth reading.
Inane psychology Sep 10, 2007
I was very excited at the prospect of learning more about setting boundaries. However,this book was so low level and inane that I ended up just throwing the book into the trash. If anything, this book should have been titled "Intro to Boundaries if you have never heard of boundary setting."
Everyone needs to read this at least once Aug 10, 2007
I work with people that have manipulators in their lives and their biggest struggle is boundaries and personal identity. It is very difficult to help a person understand this topic when it is so lacking in that persons life. This book makes this subject very easy to understand and apply to ones own life. If you think you don't have a manipulator in you life, read this book and see how fast you change your mind. The author is very non-judgmental and compassionate to everyone's preferences. There are no bad guys in this book. I love that!
Very helpful book... Jul 25, 2007
I love the great advice in this book. I'm learning how to keep people from walking all over me. It will take some time and effort but with this book I think I can overcome some of my problems in this area.
