Discusses how to choose more positive relationships, including identifying people who help build character, recognizing the traits of untrustworthy people, and modifying the traits within a person that may risk their relationships.

Zondervan House
Too many of us have invested ourselves into relationships that left us deeply wounded. We've been abandoned or taken advantage of, and left with little to show for what we've given. We've lost our sense of security and personal value in the process. And what's worse, we tend to either repeat the same mistakes of judgment over and over . . . Or else lock the doors of our hearts entirely and throw away the key. Why do we choose the wrong people to get involved with? Is it possible to change? And if so, where does one begin? Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend offer solid guidance for making safe choices in relationships, from friendships to romance. They help identify the nurturing people we all need in our lives, as well as ones we need to learn to avoid. Safe People will help you to recognize 20 traits of relationally untrustworthy people. Discover what makes some people relationally safe, and how to avoid unhealthy entanglements. You'll learn about things within yourself that jeopardize your relational security. And you'll find out what to do and what not to do to develop a balanced, healthy approach to relationships.
Finding safe people provides the foundation for building healthy, lasting relationships. Here's how to identify safe people.

This is a great book for anyone who wants to learn more about all levels of relationships. I learned so much from this book about myself and those I spent time with. After reading this, I bought it so that I could consult it as often as needed. I recommend especially to young people & teens.
