More About the Author

Byron Katie (she was born Byron Kathleen Reid; everyone calls her Katie) has one job: to teach people how to end their own suffering. When Katie appears, lives change. As she guides people through her simple yet powerful process of inquiry, called The Work, they find that their stressful beliefs--about life, other people, or themselves--radically shift. Through this process, Katie gives people the tool to set themselves free.

In 1986, at the bottom of a ten-year fall into depression, rage, and self-loathing, Byron Katie woke up one morning to a state of constant joy that has never left her. She realized that when she believed her thoughts she suffered, but when she questioned them, she didn't suffer, and that this is true for every human being.

Since then, she has worked with millions of people at free public events, in prisons, hospitals, churches, V. A. treatment centers, corporations, universities, and schools. Participants at her weekend workshops, the nine-day School for The Work, and the twenty-eight-day residential Turnaround House report profound experiences and lasting transformations. "Katie's events are riveting to watch," the Times of London reported. Eckhart Tolle calls The Work "a great blessing for our planet." And Time magazine named Katie a "spiritual innovator for the new millennium."

Byron Katie has written three bestselling books: Loving What Is, I Need Your Love--Is That True?, and A Thousand Names for Joy. Her other books are Question Your Thinking, Change The World; Who Would You Be Without Your Story?; and, for children, Tiger-Tiger, Is It True? She is married to the writer, scholar, and translator Stephen Mitchell.

On her website, www.thework.com, you will find basic information about Katie and The Work, Katie's blog, free materials to download, audio and video clips, a schedule of events, and a free helpline with a network of facilitators.

This may be one of the most profound books I've read. If Katie's approach to life resonates with you ("The Work"), this book will have a special place on your bookshelf.

This book isn't about "information". If you need "information", look elsewhere. This isn't snackfood. It's not about a quick-fix to problems in your life. (Go see your psychologist.) It's about seeing life in a whole new life-altering perspective.

The book takes you through Katie's laser-focused process of systematically destroying everything you thought you knew about life and simplifying it down to it's beautiful core. The book works its way around a number of topics, but the theme always comes back to "The Work", a simple set of questions that allows you to really see what is going on around you.

It's about how to wade through life without the weight that is currently on your shoulders. She takes you through an amazing journey that will show you that even in the worst of circumstances that the only villain is your own thoughts.

I've read all of Katie's work. I've met Katie in person. I love that this stuff isn't "pie-in-the-sky" pink-crystals-and-new-age-music stuff. It's real. It's very specific. It has changed real people's lives. And if you let it flood your mind, it will change you forever in a positive way.

To be specific, this guide is a compilation of many bits from her other books. However, because they are in small bites, they really strike you deep in your heart. I absolutely loved this book and plan to re-read it regularly.

I read a lot of Taoist and Buddhist books plus Krishnamurti. Byron Katie at first glance seems like another pop psychologist but these quotations are profound. They are not reassuring at all. They call for drastic action to clean up your story about the world, your relationships and especially the relationship you have with yourself. She says we don't know reality or who we are. We relate to ourselves and the world around us through the stories that we weave about ourselves and that is the only way we know. She asks us to drop the stories so we can finally see the world as it is. Not an easy thing to do when you've spent a whole lifetime weaving stories about you, your family, how the world is. We are very attached to our stories. They have become who we think we are.

Byron Katie's Work is all about the unraveling of your autobiography through her questioning technique. She focuses on NOW. Now is the only place where stories are not woven, there is only what is. For me, I don't want to let go of my own personal story, just yet but at least I am becoming more aware of just how much I am writing the world into existence.

Byron Katie's wisdom and words are wonderfully comforting.
I highly recommend her newest book. If you are new to her,
I'd recommend her first book "Loving What Is".

Katie always makes it simple and easy she has a way of telling you to cleanup your own yard and leave your friends and neighbors alone in other words mind your own business you will have plenty to do there. She has lived the life and is one of the most enlightened people on this planet We are very blessed to have her. Her books are all great but this one is my favorite. Love Joan

These Byron Katie tidbits are well chosen, entertaining & they pack a transformative punch. I keep this book near me & whenever i need to turn my consciousness around--whenever my thoughts have me suffering--i open to any page. It always works.

Byron Katie doesn't traffic in the "spiritual" or in banal self-improvement. Her work is profound. It holds up a mirror to your reality. It annihilates suffering. We are lucky to have her.

This is Byron Katies work with quotations separated into different topic areas. It is a nice refresher book but better to get one of her other books (Loving What is or I need your love is it true?) first. It has brought up some questions for me since some quotes are taken out of context. I am enjoying the book though, but if you are new to the work, get one that explains the concepts.

This is another book in a long line by Bryon Katie that points readers to the Truth. Many people believe there is a "silver bullet" and that the answers lie somewhere outside them. Byron gently and compassionately points to the Truth that the answers lie within....in reality there is no separation and no one else. All your problems, happiness and Joy is of course........You. The unexamined Life is not truly being lived.
