Boundaries by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend. First I wish to thank Instaread for writing and inviting me to review their book for free for an honest exchange of an honest review. The book is very easy to read, thin, with key takeaway, analysis and review of Boundaries by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend published in 2015. Note that I have bought and read many of Dr. Cloud and Townsend books and the book on Boundaries is in much more detail and I loved the actual big book as well. When a person needs to set their boundaries is when you cannot say “No” to others no matter what! It is a codependent trait that I suffer from. It will teach you how to take back control of your own life and saying “No” examples. Note that I am a people pleaser as well. I grew up feeling used, unappreciated, and very unhappy when anyone would ask me to do this or that because I just did it and never said “No.” It did not exist in my vocabulary. Basically not saying “No” is rooted in your childhood and then your grow up as an adult like me and have problems with Boundaries. This is not good. To me saying “No” means it will make others not like me, or my other half might leave me, or I make another person angry or most of all the unpleasant consequences that I might have to deal with because I set a boundary or said “No.” There is a reference list in the back of the book for reading more about how to deal with and heal if you suffer from not setting boundaries or saying no or are a codependent. © 2015 Jackie Paulson
