Katie reintroduces the form of self-questioning called "The Work" that she originally presented in Loving What Is, but here she tackles relationships—and what spoils them. According to Katie (writing with the help of Katz, who is also her agent), rather than seeking love and approval from others, you need to find them in yourself. What often blocks that love is one's perception of reality: "If you believe your stressful thoughts, your life is filled with stress. But if you question your thoughts, you come to love your life and everyone in it." "The Work" is central to the process of taking a judgmental thought—such as "my partner is supposed to make me happy"—and subjecting it to four powerful questions, such as "Is it true?" and "Who or what would I be without the thought?" Then Katie suggests turning the thought around and considering different options, such as making yourself happy and making your partner happy. Finally, she suggests ways to find love and acceptance in yourself. Katie's chatty style and her use of detailed dialogues and simple exercises will make many readers feel transformation is inevitable.

Katie's first self-help book, Loving What Is (2001), was a best-seller. This volume applies her method, called "the Work," and uses it to help readers resolve issues concerning love. The Work consists of asking oneself three questions about a troubling issue and then turning the premise around and asking the opposite questions. Adherents of this technique who read the first book probably don't need this one, since it covers much of the same territory. As before, the text takes the form of dialogues between Katie and those practicing the Work, thus demonstrating how asking the questions and evaluating the answers yield results. For instance, a woman who felt her father didn't love her gains insights about her own attitudes toward him and herself through asking not why didn't he love her but why didn't she love him. This technique seems so simple that it's hard to make a whole book out of it, but like most self-help gurus, Katie, with the aid of coauthor Katz, manages just fine. Ilene Cooper

I've listened to this set at least 3 or 4 times already - it's great for commuting! However, there are two other speakers who read for her on this set as well - a male and a female. I know this is pretty "small" in the scheme of it all, but the female speaker is foreign and has a voice that , for some reason, I just don't enjoy listening to. Katie's voice is so sweet and full of wisdom and light, then it turns to this other woman and it's heavy , dark, at quite honestly, at times, not easy to comprehend. The male speaker is fine, easy to understand and a good "example" that there are men doing this Work too.
Other than that, this is great set of Work to listen to again and again. As a teacher myself I find this to be something that we can learn from and pass along. The Work is meant for anyone, of any age , anywhere.
Thank you, Katie!
