Item description for Boundaries: When to Say Yes, How to Say No, to Take Control of Your Life by Henry Cloud & John Townsend...
Overview Tells how to set limits and still be a loving person; discusses mental, emotional, and spiritual boundaries; and looks at the related teachings of the Scriptures.
Publishers Description Having clear boundaries is essential to a healthy, balanced lifestyle. A boundary is a personal property line that marks those things for which we are responsible. In other words, boundaries define who we are and who we are not. Boundaries impact all areas of our lives: Physical boundaries help us determine who may touch us and under what circumstances -- Mental boundaries give us the freedom to have our own thoughts and opinions -- Emotional boundaries help us to deal with our own emotions and disengage from the harmful, manipulative emotions of others -- Spiritual boundaries help us to distinguish God's will from our own and give us renewed awe for our Creator -- Often, Christians focus so much on being loving and unselfish that they forget their own limits and limitations. When confronted with their lack of boundaries, they ask: - Can I set limits and still be a loving person? - What are legitimate boundaries? - What if someone is upset or hurt by my boundaries? - How do I answer someone who wants my time, love, energy, or money? - Aren't boundaries selfish? - Why do I feel guilty or afraid when I consider setting boundaries? Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend offer biblically-based answers to these and other tough questions, showing us how to set healthy boundaries with our parents, spouses, children, friends, co-workers, and even ourselves.

size of book misrepresented Mar 23, 2007
I bought this book thinking it was a full book as the product description gives. I received it only to find that it was just a mini book (2x2") I am so disappointed in this site's missrepresentation. I needed the full size book for a class I am taking and it will cost more to return it than it is worth.Boundaries
Immensely helpful Mar 23, 2007
Instead of seeing a psychiatrist years ago, I wish I'd had this book. Based on Biblical principles and with sound examples and guidance this book has changed the way I approach my family and friends as well as others. For any other co-dependents out there, I recommend that you read this book soon. It has truly been immendsely helpful to me in understanding what my wants and needs and expressing them clearly. It's also helped me stop "being responsible" for what everyone else does. Yea!
Tremendous Read Mar 21, 2007
This is THE most life changing book I've ever read, apart from the Bible. Its title could also have been Boundaries: Basic Social Interaction 101. I simply could not have found it to be more helpful or practical. The wisdom and insight I have gained from its pages are now invaluable to my daily life, and will be something I practice and apply for a lifetime. Five stars are not enough. Thank you Cloud-Townsend.
A must buy! Mar 9, 2007
These lessons apply to anyone! I don't mean to sound dramatic but this book has changed my life. With it being audio I've listened to it several times while driving around town. 100% satisfied!
This book has changed my life Mar 8, 2007
I can't even begin to tell you what a difference this book has made in my life. I finally understand why I have acted and reacted the way I have and now I'm taking control of my life and happiness for the first time. If you have been a victim in your life, don't hesitate to buy this book!
