 If you are one of those people with both clear boundaries in life and the necessary tenacity to protect those boundaries, you probably don't need to read this book. But if you're like most of us, i.e, trying to keep up with the fast-paced nature of the modern world yet finding yourself further and further behind every day, then Swenson may be the right guide to help you out. Paying appropriate attention to both theory and practice, the author dedicates the first half of the book to explain why it is so hard to strike an appropriate balance in our lives today before giving suggestions as to how one might go about striking such a balance. Even the chapters containing suggestions give plenty of theory to back up each piece of advice so that you know exactly why you ought to try what he recommends. And the author is under no illusion that someone should try to implement all 60 of his suggestions;​ he trusts that you will make those changes that will be most effective at bringing balance to your life. Swenson is a very gifted communicator,​ bringing in humor, medical expertise and personal example at just the right moments. He is also very good at integrating the spiritual with the practical. Here is what he says about Philippians 4:13, a verse many ministers use to justify a life of imbalance.\\ If you are one of those people with both clear boundaries in life and the necessary tenacity to protect those boundaries, you probably don't need to read this book.
