Publisher's Summary

One woman, frightened and sad, can't find how to leave her abusive husband when he threatens and intimidates her. Another woman gleefully contemplates strangling the men who don't make her happy.

He's abusing me. Or am I abusing myself if I walk into a yard that has the sign "THIS DOG BITES"? "If you walk into the yard, the dog bites you," says Katie. "That's his job. If you walk into the yard a second time, you bite you."

Men should make me happy. If this doesn't work, who's left? "Make a list of all the things you want men to give you," Katie suggests, "and give them to yourself."

There are no victims in the world of Byron Katie - only people who are too unconscious to take 100-percent responsibility for themselves. With The Work, there's no statement we make about others that we can't investigate and turn around to ourselves.

Discover in these two dialogues how every difficult turnaround brings amazing gifts - everything we need to change our lives.

    "First part was brilliant and then..."

    This opens with a woman who's married to a man who she has "been controlled by" for years, and Kate talks her through how she isn't being controlled, but rather somewhat has used this control narrative as a way of escaping her own feelings of inadequacy. She brings out the truth from the distraught woman, which is the grey areas of the relationship. The duality oft he husband she is married to(dark and light instead of just a terrible man) as well as the woman's own duality(her own dark and light within her self) I felt it was excellent. The truth sets free and the woman
    In the second part it started off great but by the last 5 min I was confused. Maybe some of it got lost in translation, but when she began talking about loving only happening TO someone(it not being a choice at all) I got a little annoyed at how glib she sounded.. As well as unclear.

    Overall worth listening to, but maybe with a pre-study of the other things she writes/teaches on.

    "Always great"

    Katie never disappoints and is consistently amazing in reality checks. I totally enjoy listening to her. It has changed my beliefs as I keep challenging them
