Publisher's Summary

In Loving What Is, best-selling author Byron Katie introduced thousands of people to her simple and profound method of finding happiness through questioning the mind. Now, I Need Your Love, Is That True? examines a universal, age-old source of anxiety: our relationships with others. In this groundbreaking book, Katie helps you question everything you have been taught to do to gain love and approval. In doing this, you discover how to find genuine love and connection. The usual advice offered in self-help books and reinforced by our culture advocates a stressful, all-consuming quest for love and approval. We are advised to learn self-marketing and manipulative skills: how to attract, impress, seduce, and often pretend to be something we aren't. This approach doesn't work. It leaves millions of walking wounded, those who, having failed to find love or appreciation, blame themselves and conclude that they are unworthy of love. I Need Your Love, Is That True? helps you illuminate every area in your life where you seem to lack what you long for most; the love of your spouse, the respect of your child, a lover's tenderness, or the esteem of your boss. Through its penetrating inquiry, you will quickly discover the falseness of the accepted ways of seeking love and approval, and also of the mythology that equates love with need. Using the method in this book, you will inquire into painful beliefs that you've based your whole life on, and be delighted to see them evaporate. Katie shows you how unraveling the knots in the search for love, approval, and appreciation brings real love and puts you in charge of your own happiness.

letting go of other people's drama

this was the first audiobook I bought from Audible. I'd heard friends raving about The Work and Byron Katie and I enjoyed listening to this and getting a pretty clear idea of how her system works. I like listening to audiobooks on long drives and this was a good one for this.

The Work by Byron Katie, to me, is about recognising that other people's stuff is their own and this is therefore a great way of getting out of other people's drama. I see drama as a massive energy drain so this is a great thing as far as I'm concerned.

The book is pretty well structured and easy to follow in audiobook form.

The best book yet

Byron Katie says what everyone thinks and for me that is the reason the book feels true ...is that true? YES IT IS. More books like this please although I can't think there's anything much else to say. For me this book is up there with Eckhart Tolle s book the Power of now...same message different gravy!
