clear and concise ideas and information

this book was really easy to understand and gave lots of examples of boundaries and how to recognize those who will push boundaries and what to do when they do. I would recommend this book for anyone who has had difficulties in past relationships with abusers or boundary pushers or those who want to prevent it from happening in the future. After 1 read/listen I started using some of the examples and have found that it works amazingly.

A good basic read on boundaries.

Where is the pdf promised. Easy to read and informative. I liked the part on how to protect yourself from manipulators.

A good how to list

I found this information helpful, in recognizing where, when and how I compromised or completely let down my boundaries in past relationships, and also in how to not allow this to happen moving forward. This information will help me to create a healthier way of treating myself and respecting myself.

Boundaries explained

For those of us with a history of not setting boundaries and not even knowing how, this short book sets out very clear “allowed” boundaries and how to learn to place them in your life. I will be relistening to it several times.

Fastest Way to Spot a Life Wrecker

If you could sum up Boundaries After a Pathological Relationship in three words, what would they be?

I loved the book, it was an eye opener. I'm more aware of what kind of people and why do they disrespect my boundaries after this book. Confusion is gone.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Boundaries After a Pathological Relationship?

It's not me, its the toxic people who are around me.

Worth hearing again and again for good reason.

My 3rd or 4th listen. Refreshers help to decide how my personal boundaries are shifting toward self-love. I like the direction my life is taking and appreciate the ability to see how much I have improved, learned and healed. What I once thought was normal is so sad. I do not consider my years with someone whom likely is pathological, as wasted time. I know my story is mine to, one day, share and show others the way to self-love and a clear mind, likely with titles within Audible.com books.
The content is concise and relevant. Others' writings and ideas shared are well cited. I like that.
The reader exhibits nuances in her voice appropriately. She is not distracting from the content. Bold voice

Spot on!

Short, sweet, spot on and absolutely required reading!

I just learned that firm boundaries provide too much of a challenge for manipulators- generally prompting them to move on. Manipulators aren’t looking for a challenge, they are looking for a victim. Tired of being a victim? Learn about boundaries- and then get some.

Good but not what I expect!

A short version of boundaries and most of the literature related to your boundaries with partners. I wish it could be more broad... it gives a good perspective and good insight but it could’ve been a deeper look at it.

Audio book is so great

The audiobook is so great, I am going to buy the paperback too. I wish I had these tools 40 years ago.

Excellent, Concise, Great Guide

Well done. Lots of information in clear, easy to understand presentation. Only 75-minute audiobook full of step by step guidelines. Not preachy. Matter of fact. Highly recommend.
