John Townsend and Henry Cloud: Boundaries Audio Book Summary
The audiobook Boundaries: When To Say Yes, How To Say No, To Take Control of Your Life is an award-winning, internationally bestselling, breakthrough work by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend.
The book has sold millions of copies worldwide, and has spawned a series of related books targeting more specific niches, including: Beyond Boundaries, Boundaries for Leaders, Boundaries in Dating, Boundaries in Marriage, Boundaries with Kids, and Boundaries with Teens, as well as a number of workbooks and seminar events produced worldwide.
The book takes a very simple concept, the idea of setting clear boundary lines for personal space, at home and at work, and articulates how individuals can work to establish those boundaries for themselves and have others respect them for it.
In a time when many people feel like they must always say yes to others, for fear of risking their reputations, injuring the person asking them, or falling behind the pack, Boundaries is a brilliant articulation of why setting clear lines is so important in everyday situations.
From the employee who legitimately can’t take on a heavier workload even though he wants to help out a coworker or boss with a project, to the overworked mother who needs to find time for herself amidst the hectic chores and errands with the kids and taking care of the home, Boundaries provides a set of principles that are applicable in a wide variety of situations.
First, the book takes a look at why these boundaries are so important to your own personal well being. Everyone, after all, needs to have a sense of personal space and inner freedom. Without clear practices defining it, others will gradually encroach upon your sense of space, oftentimes unwillingly.
Then the book looks at how to establish those lines and communicate them with others, in a respectful, mutually beneficial way. Many times, the authors point out, other people don’t even realize they’ve crossed a line that bothers you, and its important to communicate that line.
It also confronts questions that many people routinely face about feeling guilty when you can’t give the time or energy requested by another person, or when someone asks for more time or energy than you can reasonably provide. While these are often delicate issues, there are many tactful ways to deal with them, which this audiobook presents.
This book, and the philosophy that corresponds with it, has literally taken the world by storm, and authors Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend have truly written a popular masterpiece that combines a scientific understanding of what our bodies and minds need with a practical look at the situations that many people face every single day.
A great listen, even for those who don’t think they have an issue setting boundaries, as it can help you to gain awareness of the problems other people face. Especially if you’re in a leadership position in an organization, this will help you to understand what role you might play to help your coworkers and employees deal with uncomfortable situations, and have the organization help those individuals to set boundaries as well.
