    I love this book. It's like going your own private marriage counseling session and I honestly feel this is a book that should be read before you get married and kept while your married to read just in case you have a set back and need to refresh your boundaries. This book is so great I recommended to my mother and who reading it also and she loves it. I will take what I've learned and incorporate it into my everyday life. I took plenty of notes!!!

    This is an amazing book! When I found it in April 2013, I was at my wits end. Having filed for divorce, but being told by my Christian friends that I had not given God a chance to work in my life and in my relationship. After 10 years of marriage, I, like a number of subjects in this book, had enough my husband's irresponsibility and lashes of anger. Soon after I began reading the book, I discovered my own failure and contribution to our situation. Out of fear of being verbally attacked and just wanting to avoid conflict, often times I was passive and allowed situations that warranted confrontation to go unchecked. This was a recurring pattern. So rather than setting boundaries, which I was not familiar with until reading the book, over time I felt I had no other choice but divorce, since my husband ignored my pleading and cajoling for change. Now it's September 2013, I've finished the book and I believe strongly that my marriage will survive. I immediately began practicing some of the techniques in the book and the response from my husband has been positive. We still have a ways to go in terms of fully reconciling and healing our marriage. But I no longer feel lost, anxious or afraid. I believe I have the necessary tools to help make my marriage strong, honest, and real. I thank Dr. Cloud and Dr. Townsend for a tremendous work. I prayed, fasted and pleaded with God to send me the answers to help me know what direction to go in with my marriage, and I found this book. I told a friend that I felt as though it was written solely and specifically for me. I am so grateful that I found this book. I shutter to think where my marriage would be if I had not.

    The Boundaries series is one of my favorites. This will definitely help your marriage. ***tech issue. I have no chapters in here. So it's hard to navigate. This isn't like other iBooks. So there's a glitch or something.
