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.

What the critics say

"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)

Life changing!

This book has been the best book I’ve read and most useful in my 34 years of life. It should be read/listened to by everyone to create healthy relationships with yourself and others. I Loved how she included examples of how to say things and how to deal with different situations. Enjoyed her wisdom and knowledge on each topic that she covered in the book, I also loved that each chapter was ended with questions to help the reader to solidify the information that each chapter spoke to. This book isn’t a book that you can just read or listen to once...and I actually wished that I purchased the hard copy to write in and take notes. Will be listening again with my note pad in hand...or might even pick up a hard copy so I can do some highlighting.
Just outstanding, empowering, encouraging and uplifting!!! Thank you Nedra for this book! It was much needed!

This book transformed my life

This book honestly saved me thousands of dollars in therapy bills. Turns out, majority of my issues stem from a lack of boundaries. Nedra’s practical advice, relevant examples, and journal exercises provided me with so much clarity in the boundaries I need to set in my life. I particularly enjoyed the parts about setting boundaries with friends, family and social media. I wish I had this book when I was in my early 20s! I’m so happy I found it nonetheless. Definitely recommend!

Boundaries explained and how to

Great listen with real tangible thoughts and opportunity to take notes answer questions for deeper understanding. This was helpful as it explained the various types of boundaries and the how and why of them. Thank-you.

Life changing

Incredible book. I have been on a journey of healing myself and breaking generational cycles. Understanding the importance of personal boundaries is something I was never taught. I have shared this book with my two young adult daughters. This author is so inspiring to me.

Not for everyone

Though I find this book as valuable information I’m not as thrilled with the layout or performance.
