Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Margaret Chan | 2/12/2014

    " It's just not about others, as we tend to have the goal to discern other people. But it's double sword that this book is about ourselves, whether we are safe to others too. We need to discern if others are safe to self, but we have the responsibility to God to discern if we are a safe person to this society/community/people around us. :-) Very thought-provoking and insightful book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ken | 2/3/2014

    " Ever wonder what makes people tick, and why some people seem dangerous to be around and others don't? This book helps explain a lot of it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 1/10/2014

    " Excellent insights "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 12/29/2013

    " I read this book seeking to learn how to avoid unsafe poeple, like those who lie and cheat. For some reason-reasons my therapist and I have discovered- I was attracted to unsafe people. Low and behold, I not only discovered what to look for in others (sharpening my radar and intuitive red flag indicator)-I saw how I was unsafe. So, I started learning about my defense mechanisms and was freed to not live out of fear and through that, have become a safe person myself. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/23/2013

    " If you go into it with an open, prayerful heart and mind, this book can change your life. I've finished the book, but I am working through the book and it's corresponding DVDs with a group at my church. I'm learning so much about myself and the people I surround myself with. I feel safer already! :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marian | 12/18/2013

    " Great book that I refer to often when doing therapy with clients who have been hurt repeatedly in relationships. This book has character traits listed of people who are emotionally safe and trustworthy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beverly | 12/5/2013

    " This is the book that I'm working on now. Actually I'm leading a group study on it with about 4 other women. It's a great follow up to Boundaries. I always thought of myself as a 'safe person'. But after working through this book, I realize that I've been in search of such a person for ME! It's taught me some valuable information that I hope to implement into my lifestyle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth Henry | 12/2/2013

    " Practical, useful information to help you grow in relationships. The thing I like about this book is they don't encourage you to only look for unsafe traits in other ppl, but to look at yourself, thus empowering you to grow & change. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caroline | 11/10/2013

    " Once I read this book, I was able to find and invest my time into friendships worth keeping "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 11/10/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rochelle | 10/12/2013

    " This is great too. If you don't have the skills in picking out good people to associate with, this is for you. I tend to think all people are nice and I don't want to hurt their feelings so I allow alot of people into my life that should have never been allowed. "
