The wrong picture!

I got the older version of this book. The front cover looks totally different. I am in the class and we read the book together, so I am afraid that the one I got won't work. It is good to read alone outside the class though.


Writing in book

Warning! This is a religious text!

I do not like this book. I also did not receive the book pictured, as another reviewer stated. Additionally, this book is all about my Christian relationship with God... well, I don't have one of those and I don't want one. That is a firm boundary I can stick to! I thought this was a self-help book written by psychologists and it's my fault I didn't check that detail. Bummer.

NOT what you receive

The newly updated is what’s pictured and sold. However, you will only receive the older version. This is frustrating because I am doing a book study with a friend and will not have the same version. On top of that!! They left a .52 cent YARD SALE sticker on it…

Forces religion where it isn't needed.

This book is only for religious people. If you don't think god is the answer to all of your problems then this book isn't for you. Not useful to anyone disillusioned with the lies spread by religion. Was hoping for a book on setting boundaries with parents, not on the authors relationship with his god. There are no pages that do not reference a bible verse.


Misleading, it's a religious book but seems to be marketed as a normal self-help book.

Poor condition

Writing and highlighting all over in book and it was listed as very good condition. Pretty disappointed!

One of the best books I’ve read

It taught me so much. Really going into detail about boundaries and how to use them & giving so many examples of them. This really changed my outlook towards people. Thank you!

Best Book Ever

One of the best books I’ve ever read. I believe everyone in the world should read this book

Misleading Book Cover Picture

The book itself deserves a 5-star. It's principles are Biblically based. If you're going to purchase books using this please compare the ISBN for the book you need with the one being sold/advertised! I thought I was receiving the version advertised, but instead I received two of the same older versions (1992). I thought for sure one of the books I ordered was a workbook. The books are in great condition. I appreciated the quick delivery, but just can't get passed the fact that the picture of the product didn't match what was sent to me. That should be fixed, because now I've got to spend additional money to buy the correct edition. Amazingly the book cover shown on the review page matches. Instead of an F-, I've graded you a very big C-! I deserve half of the cost refunded since I naively trusted the system an you falsely advertised. Do better now that you know better. I will too!

Churchy, Bible-based, Not for Me

This is NOT what I thought it would be. I wanted a self-help book to assist in my self-improvement journey, but after a traumatic church experience in my childhood, I’m literally unable to read a book peppered with bible verses, so in the donation pile you go! Side note about what I received: My copy is full of someone’s sermon notes and Christian bookmarks. Bonus?

Everyone needs boundaries!

I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to others. It really helps in understanding the why behind the conflict, and how boundaries are needed and should be respected. It re-enforced some learnings from therapy and a co-dependent group. It helped me with saying No, and not having to explain my no. It helped me define boundaries with several people that I had neglected to do so before.

This book is a very religious book

This book is very religion based and gives ideas only based around “Christ”. This book is not helpful for someone looking to learn and set boundaries in their life without the use of “Christ”. The book mainly only gives ideas and examples from the Bible

Old version!!!

The picture is very misleading because that is not the book they send you. It’s an older version


Great Book but I got the older version. The picture is misleading. The good thing is that mine had no highlighting or writing in it.

Not “like new”

Has writing inside. “Like new” is deceptive. But it’s a great book.

Must Read

This book is very educational and practical. It helps the reader to be introspective regarding their boundaries and it provides the reader with information that will enable him/her to apply the change to his/her life .


I am very disappointed. The book I received is an older printing of this book AND old workbook ~ Not what is pictured!! 😢 someone had lent the pictures copy to me but I had to return before finished. I thought I’d purchase my own.

Boundaries Book Order

Unfortunately, 4 of the 50 used books ordered were not usable. They were overly highlighted, tagged with book markers and written in ink. I appreciate the price reduction. However, I give these books away to patients at no cost to them except to read and review in session.

Order this and got a copy of the old version of the book

Book was not as described. It contained handwriting and notes. Wouldn't consider it in "very good condition." The author and content of the book are great, however.
