The instant New York Times bestseller

End the struggle, speak up for what you need, and experience the freedom of being truly yourself.

Healthy boundaries. We all know we should have them--in order to achieve work/life balance, cope with toxic people, and enjoy rewarding relationships with partners, friends, and family. But what do "healthy boundaries" really mean--and how can we successfully express our needs, say "no," and be assertive without offending others?

Licensed counselor, sought-after relationship expert, and one of the most influential therapists on Instagram Nedra Glover Tawwab demystifies this complex topic for today's world. In a relatable and inclusive tone, Set Boundaries, Find Peace presents simple-yet-powerful ways to establish healthy boundaries in all aspects of life. Rooted in the latest research and best practices used in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), these techniques help us identify and express our needs clearly and without apology--and unravel a root problem behind codependency, power struggles, anxiety, depression, burnout, and more.

  • Boundaries Are The Key To Healthy Relationships

    Before I read this book, I’ve always felt like I was a passenger to my own life, and someone else was driving the car. A people pleaser in every sense of the word. Saying yes to everything my past girlfriends wanted, not wanting to disappoint family with certain decisions, or even wanting to be accepted by people who weren’t even benefiting me. I now see the importance of speaking up about what you’re comfortable and not comfortable doing. The proper boundaries are how you establish the relationships that are true and beneficial for you, because if someone doesn’t respect your boundaries, you don’t need a relationship with them to begin with. I highly recommend this book for anyone who has anxiety or depression also.
  • Clarity

    By steve10002
    This book provided me with a lot of clarity about feelings of guilt when saying no to people. Also, that it’s okay to set and repeat your boundaries with people. This is the “two things can be true” rule everyone is talking about for me. However, you need to make one thing clear to people. Loved this book beyond words.

  • Not long enough

    By rs918
    I thought that this book would be longer and more insightful.. not saying it wasn’t insightful, but I wish it went more in depth. It was definitely way too expensive for what it was. It was literally like 20 pages… finished in 20 minutes…
  • Easy read but so vaulable

    I came across the book from hearing it on podcast and also Instagram. I loved the advice so much, very eye opening. If you know you have boundary issues or not even sure you correctly understand what a boundary is crack this book open!
