    Stephen Mitchell, the renowned translator of the Tao Te Ching, selected excerpts from that ancient text as a stimulus for Byron Katie to talk about the most essential issues that face us all: life and death, good and evil, love, work, and fulfillment. The result is an audiobook that allows the timeless insights of the Tao Te Ching to resonate anew for us today, while offering a vivid and illuminating glimpse into the life of someone who lives what Lao-tzu wrote more than 2,500 years ago.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Thousand Names for Joy to be better than the print version?

    I can't imagine reading this and getting the same sense of peace from it. The voice of Byron Katie is what allows the listener to take what she is saying seriously. You understand the place of acceptance and love she speaks of because its conveyed in the way she says it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Thousand Names for Joy?

    She spoke of a man holding a gun to her and she says she understood what it once felt like to feel like she HAD to do something too. When she relates her personal experiences, whether its from first person or third person, she truly gets across her point that nothing is really happening without believing the thought of it.


    Which character – as performed by Byron Katie and Stephen Mitchell – was your favorite?

    The hand that kills the ant.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It filled me with an understanding of unconditional love and acceptance.
