An excellent book. It defines what exactly is meant by 'safe' and 'unsafe' people, in relationships... It gives to-the-point, sensible & culled-from-wisdom indicators of what makes up a 'safe' person and an 'unsafe' person, and then breaks down as well the personal, then interpersonal qualities of unsafe people. Later it does a similar thing for 'safe' people--breaking down the characteristics and habits that make them safe (and warmth/growth-inducing) in relationships. The wisdom in _Safe People_ manifests itself as you read; you'll instantly recognize the authors' insight and keep saying to yourself, 'Yeah. Yeah...! Now, why didn't I know that (realize it) or say it to myself before???' It makes sense, but as a 'manual' of sorts, you'll refer back to it again and again. It will help you with yourself as well as help you with working with the people you relate with. I have learned and grown a lot from this little book; it's an easy read that keeps you going and moving through it. I am getting copies for as many of the people in my life as I can. It's a true blessing. If you love someone, give them this book.

Make sure that you remain prayerful and open minded as you read this book. The text clearly and concisely describes unsafe and safe people, allows you to discover areas where you are unsafe to others, and confirms the areas where you can be even better to others. It's one that you may have to read or refer to several times before reaching the depths of your issues and their cause(s), and it's requires honesty with yourself, God, and others to fully apply these principles. Also, the text references the Bible for each principle and teaches its reader how to live and treat others as God and Christ. If only everyone were reading this book... I loved it and I'm telling everybody!!

I have read many books on relationships. This book is the best book I have ever read concerning safe relationships and how to recognize good and bad traits. This is a must read for any systems based therapist.

These are the authors that wrote one of THE defining books on boundaries and setting limits in relationships. They also both hold PhDs, AND are strongly entrenched in American Christian life philosophies. If you, also, are strongly entrenched in American Christian lifestyle, this would be an excellent read for you.  If you are are NOT, especially if you still carry trauma from being involved in this lifestyle previously (*raises hand*) you may have to tiptoe through the God-talk in order to avoid triggering issues. Even with that caveat, this books has many, many excellent nuggets and insights in it. Here are some bits that resonated with me: "Unsafe people only apologize instead of changing their behavior."  Or the concept of "merger wishes" relationships: "When someone else possesses a trait that we don't have, we are inclined to blur our identity with with theirs in order to help us feel better about ourselves and to gain access to that trait."  Or the tendency, when our boundaries are weak, to go for all or nothing: "...boundaryless people tend to isolate as their only limit. Often, people with weak boundaries will give in repeatedly to some irresponsible or demanding person.  Then, out of the blue, they'll pack up and leave the relationship with no warning." We DON'T have to be with unsafe people; nor can nor should we, trust our church or social club to screen people for us. That was my biggest take-away from this book, recognizing my own tendency/wish to think that in XYZ group, everyone is "safe" for me. Just ain't so. Because of MY life experiences, traits,  and personality, Person A may be unsafe for me, but absolutely safe for YOU, and vice versa. As adults, we each need to figure out how to sort out and separate those who are safe and unsafe for us, PERSONALLY.  We can't count on others to do it for us, anymore than we can count on others to exercise for us. Some of the traits of safe people, according to this book, include: "Someone who gives me an opportunity to grow; someone I can be myself around; Someone who allows me to be on the outside what I am on the indie; someone whose life touches mine and leaves me better for it," and much more. I do highly recommend this book, and am only deducting a star because of the triggering issues it may present to some readers.

Clearly explains how to identify people who are good for us and those who aren't, why we may be letting the wrong people into our life over and over again, and how we ourselves can become the kind of person we want in our life if we aren't already. It doesn't just blame others for our lot in life but puts responsibility on us which is helpful because that's what we have control over and can change, our decisions, choices and behavior. I also enjoyed the clear biblical explanations of common distorted thinking Christians have in letting people mistreat you out of a misguided sense of sacrifice or suffering.

It is thought provoking, and has many bible verses to allow a person to go do their own review. Though, I do wish it would have addressed friendships with those that are not christian. But it did give me a fresh view on some relationships that I have been questioning.
