I could not stop listening from beginning to end. I especially liked the description of the mad part. I have been there and it really resonated with me. I also loved her description of the lost loss. Thankyou Jeanette/Janet.

I enjoyed it and felt attached to the main character although some of the story didn't ring true. Very interesting locations and plot.

some good ideas

I liked it but just personally found the narrator's voice annoying. I am sure others might not but I couldn't help but be distracted by it. For me when the narration is good you don't even think about it. The worked examples are good but I am not sure they weren't just focussed on a very limited group of people. It was good however to have different chapters for different types of boundary setting.

Awesome read

I thought the narrator was excellent. It was a really interesting idea and kept me engaged all the way through.

I found the content really interesting but the narrator was a bit monotone. I actually fell asleep a few times while listening. Her writing is no doubt good but the narration was too emotionless. I liked that she looked at post traumatic growth but the end was a bit fuzzy. I was not exactly sure what the growth was in. I liked the stories and descriptions of people she admired and the way they helped people through trauma.

The best book I have read in ages!

I think the theory was well explained and good examples given. The section on clear communication was helpful. I think what was lacking was a detailed explanation of how one might move from a less useful attachment style to a more secure one. Also I would have liked more on why these styles emerge from previous relationships. Overall a worthwhile read.
