Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Though the prolific Casey (Change Your Mind and Your Life Will Follow) admits that embracing detachment (to "bring together" separation) is a conundrum, she sees it as a way of life that must be followed in order to find true peace. A dysfunctional upbringing lead her to alcohol abuse and then AA, which helped her to understand her codependent behavior: she had "danced around others" and based her self-image around their approval. By practicing detachment, which she admits requires a commitment of patience and time, she experienced a major transformation. Too many of us, Casey believes, allow the behavior of others, whether good, bad, or indifferent, to control us. After a brief introduction, she presents 200 short, straightforward daily lessons, from "detachment from others is necessary to fully enjoy attachment to God" to "relinquishing the role of being someone else's Higher Power," illustrating the many forms that detachment can take in one's life, and the obvious foundation behind her self-help philosophy. Obviously inspired by the tenets of AA, and updated with an eye to the east, Casey's latest is an easy reference guide for those seeking recovery or peace.

More About the Author

I was born in Lafayette, IN and moved to Minneapolis, MN in 1964. I taught elementary school for a few years and then pursued a graduate degree at the University of MN. I graduated with a Ph.D. in 1979. I published my first book, EACH DAY A NEW BEGINNING: DAILY MEDITATIONS FOR WOMEN with Hazelden Publishing in 1982. It has been followed by the publication of 28 other books, the most recent of which is Living Long, Living Passionately. This book includes 75 essays on how to seek and then embrace our purpose as we age. See www.womens-spirituality.com for a complete listing and description and for a link to my blog. My focus as a writer is on the development of spiritual growth and strengthening one's twelve step recovery, and my personal experience is what I rely on, coupled with the wisdom I glean from the many people I walk among in the rooms of AA and Al-Anon. When I am not in front of the computer writing, I am likely giving a lecture or doing a workshop some where. I have spoken to tens of thousands world-wide over my forty year tenure in recovery rooms. From each experience my gratitude grows. And from each experience, my commitment grows to continue doing what brings my life such joy.

As a person seeking more peace in her life, particularly in her relationships with others, I have often been "guided" to "practice" detachment. Let Go Now brings to life (and more importantly to the millions of minutes that make up our lives) just what it means to DO (action word!) just that. This book is repetitive, in the most positive sense of the word...read it, absorb it, reflect on it, and the payoff of peace is yours. Not a sea change, but little by little, contentment and serenity will creep in and replace the angst and drama that accompanies letting the lives of others affect us too much. Like eating truffles, I nibbled and savored this book. As I read it I kept thinking about the expression, "what you resist, persists". I hope I will not resist this book's message. At its core it is about ACCEPTANCE. I believe that by ACCEPTING its message I can become more of the person I want to be in my relationships.

LET GO NOW HAS BEEN ONE OF THE MOST HELPUL BOOKS WE HAVE WORKED OUR WAY THROUGH ON DETACHMENT. WE ARE IN OUR 70'S AND HAVE DEALT FOR MANY YEARS WITH OUR DAUGHTER WHO IS BIPOLAR, A RECOVERING ALCOHOLIC, OCD, NOW PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY HANDICAPPED. WE HAVE NEVER READ A BETTER BOOK ON WORKING THROUGH TO DETACH FROM ( NOT WITHDRAW FROM) OUR STRUGGLES WITH HOW TO DEAL WITH IT AND LIVE A HAPPY LIFE IN SPITE OF IT. IT HAS THE SPIRITUAL ASPECT WHICH WAS IMPORTANT FOR US TOO. WE FEEL THIS AUTHOR KNOWS JUST WHAT WE ARE EXPERIENCING AND DOES HELP US KNOW HOW TO MANAGE IT. WE READ IT TOGETHER AND HELP EACH OTHER IN THIS TOO. YOU WILL BE BLESSED BY THIS BOOK. JOYCE

Karen Casey has outdone herself once again in her newest book "Let Go Now- Eembracing Ddetachment." She has condensed many excellent recommendatons regarding "detaching with love" in her one page daily thoughts on detaachment. The book is well written and can be savored one page at a time , or in groups of pages woith a similar theme. It presents each concept in a variety of perspectives for a better understanding and acceptance of the detachment theme. I highly recommend this book for all of us co-dependents, but feel it is very beneficial for anyone working on having healthy relationships in thei lives. Thank you, Ms. Casey, once again for your enlightening words of wisdom.

I bought the book to see if it would help me to be less sensitive to other people and to worry less about whether I was meeting everyone's expectations of me. It has helped me to accomplish that. It has helped me tremendously by also putting things in the right perspective and is filled with so much good wisdom. I feel that anyone could benefit in some way by reading this book.

I began reading with high hopes. I think there is a great message if you are a God fearing christian. So far I cannot relate to her struggle with alcohol as a base for the strategy but the strategy could be helpful. The problem for me is that she refers to God for everything and the answer to everything. As I don't subscribe to that philosophy The repeated use of this as a reference distracts me and discredits it all for me. I wonder if she could just replace that word throughout the book with the "Universal energy", or your "higher power". Make a reference somehow to suggest that God is not the only answer but indeed that is what the book is about. I wish I would have known that as I would not have bought the book. I will never get through it.

If you believe that God is the answer then you should read this book. Otherwise, leave it on the shelf as you will be turned off.

I have always been a fan of Karen Casey, so when this book recently came out, I quickly purchased it from Amazon. I started reading it this past weekend on a plane trip, and the tears just poured down my cheeks. This book deals so beautifully with the issues suurounding "attachment," which I have struggled with all my life. I am still reading the book, very slowly, so I can digest every idea and suggestion. I want to savor every page. This book is truly life-changing, and I highly recommend it.

This book cuts to the chase! Clear, simple, well-written, and very helpful in my everyday life. There is a lot of common sense to be had here, common sense that the world we live in seems to try to erode at every turn. A daily dose of Let Go Now helps keep me grounded and at peace.

I enjoyed this book but I am not a religious individual or one with a substance abuse problem. I am merely interested in detachment in a spiritual way and want to learn as much as I can. I believe this book was still very helpful though it was centered around AA teachings.
