This book had one major drawback; the author's experience suggested that it is primarily women who have the type of boundary issues that would make them buy this book, so she wrote it totally with women in mind and addressed to women. There's only a half-hearted nod to men with boundary issues in the first chapter. Otherwise, her description of how boundaries function and the types of problems people develop with boundaries and how those problems play out in people's lives is quite adroit.

This book was my introduction to boundary issues and it was lacking in the introductory department. There was no overview of the concept; it just dove right in, so it took three chapters, and the re-reading of those three chapters, to catch on. I liked the interactive quiz, thereby personalizing the concepts. And I did finish the book more knowledgeable about the topic than when I started, though I still want to read the text for 'boundaries 101'.
