Drs. Cloud and Townsend have written many books on boundaries, but this is the one I refer to the most. I find it helpful for parents whose children are moving into the world of dating [it gives them some good questions and ways to talk about the dating process] as well as adults who are want to improve their dating experiences. It highlights red flags to watch for both within themselves and those they are dating. Please note that the newest edition has a rather aggressive cover of a big red lipstick line across the front. While I'm not thrilled with the cover, the material inside is still solid and worth your time whether male or female. This book is written from a Christian perspective, but regardless of your particular religious orientation, the clinical information is very helpful.
