    A few observations:

    1) Despite this book's brevity, it's still too long and still too repetitive. I've concluded that learning how to say no doesn't merit a book-length treatment.

    2) Although there are a few good soundbite moments, this book mostly just presents ideas readers could arrive at through common sense. I didn't learn anything from this book that I didn't already know from my own thoughts and experience.

    3) This book wanders beyond its stated focus: No Is a Beautiful Word is designed and crafted for people whose plate is full, whose margin is thin, and whose life feels overloaded (from the book description). Several of the chapters have nothing to do with the problem of overload and overcommitment. Chapter 51 (No Words), for example, encourages readers to think through toxic words and phrases (e.g., I'll never forgive you!) they'll never say to others, especially in the heat of the moment. While there's nothing wrong with saying no to using certain words and phrases, that practice doesn't fit this book's focus at all.

    4) There are Christian books that throw in a few Christian examples but otherwise sound like secular self-help books, and then there are Christian books saturated from the inside out with biblical thinking. Sadly, this book is the former. Honestly, I wish it had claimed to be a typical self-help book so that I could perhaps be more generous with my rating. But when a book claims to be from a Christian perspective, I must automatically hold it to a stricter standard.

    My recommendation is that you pass on this one. If you're feeling overcommitted and (occasionally) exhausted, Kevin DeYoung's Crazy Busy, David & Shona Murray's Reset/Refresh (one is targeted at men, the other at women), or Tim Challies's Do More Better are better places to start.

    Kevin Harney, an author I had not heard of previously, has written a book of practical advice for anyone struggling with significant demands on his or her time. Perhaps the best concept here is that one has to say 'no' to many things so 'yes' can be said to the most important things in one's life. This slim volume consists of 68 short chapters, which is not a strength of the book. I found wanting more detail and more context for each of Harney's points of emphasis. I believe the book would have been stronger if the author had developed some his ideas in greater depth. But anyone who takes the book's lessons to heart will find a more productive and fulfilling life, and that's no small thing.

    Easy read with lots of practical steps to learn to take back control of our lives of the hectic pace filled with so many requests. Say no in a variety of ways in order to say yes to others. Reminded me of 1 Cor 6:12, all things are lawful for me but not all things profitable.... There are even many good things out there to do, but only a few bests. I will be recommending this book to a few people around me.

    I really enjoyed the second half of this book. The first half just felt like a long list. Also, I read Boundaries by Henry Cloud a while back and this one reminded me a lot of that. I think it's a worthwhile read, especially if you haven't read boundaries. The second half was definitely a decent refresher for those of us who have.

    Easy read, good concept, not original, could have been a blog post.
