Review quote

I've been recommending Boundaries to friends, team members and radio listeners for more than twenty years. In fact, hardly a day goes by when I don't use something that I learned from this book. The principles are timeless, and the updates in this version make Boundaries even more relevant to readers and their relationships. * Dave Ramsey, bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio show host * Now updated and expanded, this classic book is more timely and relevant than ever for today's "always on, always there" culture. If technology and social media are intruding on your life and relationships, learn from the boundaries experts how to protect yourself and the people you love. This life-changing book is still the go-to guide for healthy relationships, personal growth, and true freedom in Christ. * Andy Stanley, pastor, author, communicator, and Founder of North Point Ministries * Of every book that I've read, Boundaries is the one I recommend most often. All of us can overcommit, become doormats, or find ourselves in codependent and dysfunctional relationships. Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend's one-of-a-kind book helps guide the reader through a change in mindset that eventually leads to a change in actions. If you know you have some unhealthy patterns in friendships, at work, in your schedule, with technology or your family, this book will help you establish the boundaries you need to create the life you are supposed to live. * Craig Groeschel, pastor of Life.Church and NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author * Boundaries by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend is truly an "in case of (relational) fire---remove hammer, break glass" kind of book. If you need the pain to stop and the healing to start, read this life-changing book and follow its instruction to freedom. * Dr. James MacDonald, senior pastor of Harvest Bible Chapel and author of VERTICAL CHURCH and ACT LIKE MEN. JamesMacDonald.org * Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend continue to break the boundaries of incredible revelation in their new and revised edition of Boundaries. As the senior pastor of a large church, this message has not only changed my life, but the lives of my staff and congregation. If you want to learn how to have healthier relationships, you need to read this book! * Robert Morris, Founding Senior Pastor, Gateway Church, Dallas/ Fort Worth, Texas; bestselling author of THE BLESSED LIFE , THE GOD I NEVER KNEW, TRULY FREE , and FREQUENCY *
