    You don't have to own THEIR problems!

    This book contains many ideas on how to avoid taking responsibility for problems that are not yours. It also shows how to stay true to your ideals when you may not agree with another's. I highly recommend it!

    Very, very worthwhile reading

    I originally read this book about 8-9 years ago. I am STILL re-reading it, writing notes on 3 x 5 cards, and carrying them around with me. And now, I'm learning how Not to rescue another rescuer (friend)!

    The language in the book was such an easy read, I underestimated the power of it. Recognizing my thinking patterns and using the text in the book, it is much easier for me to recognize when I am doing things that are too helpful and will lead me to a difficult situation that I don't want to be in.

    What Did I Do Before I Read This Book?!

    Recommended by our family therapist. My copy is dog-eared and I refer often to this wonderful little book. Easy to read, understand and put into practice. I have suggested this book to family and friends- all have thanked me. No matter what other books you have read/own in this genre, you may only need this one book. Both my husband and I each have our own copies on our bedside tables. FYI we are not the "self-help" book type people. Love this book!

    Amazing book. I re-read it once a year

    This is an amazing book on learning how to validate people's feelings without taking all their problems on yourself. This is a must read for anyone in any kind of leadership position. It really helps you deal with others in a positive, rewarding way.
