The usual advice offered in self-help books and reinforced by our culture advocates a stressful, all-consuming quest for love and approval. We are advised to learn self-marketing and manipulative skills: how to attract, impress, seduce, and often pretend to be something we aren't. This approach doesn't work. It leaves millions of walking wounded, those who, having failed to find love or appreciation, blame themselves and conclude that they are unworthy of love.
I Need Your Love, Is That True? helps you illuminate every area in your life where you seem to lack what you long for most; the love of your spouse, the respect of your child, a lover's tenderness, or the esteem of your boss. Through its penetrating inquiry, you will quickly discover the falseness of the accepted ways of seeking love and approval, and also of the mythology that equates love with need. Using the method in this book, you will inquire into painful beliefs that you've based your whole life on, and be delighted to see them evaporate. Katie shows you how unraveling the knots in the search for love, approval, and appreciation brings real love and puts you in charge of your own happiness.

"Katie's chatty style and her use of detailed dialogues and simple exercises will make many readers feel transformation is inevitable." (Publishers Weekly)
This is a wonderful compilation - it is read by Kimberly Farr - I do prefer the shortened version read by Byron Katie she is wonderfully animated and I find I get so much from her just in her delivery of the material - Thank you Katie
It was good although I prefer to listen to Byron Katie
An Amazing Gift Not to Be Missed
Insightful, Enlightening, Life-Changing.
It is helpful to experience voice inflection and tone to receive an even more full benefit versus simply reading the book. Listening also lends a sense of inclusion, as if you are at a seminar or a conference in a group. If you feel solitary most of the time, this experience adds a feeling of being not alone.
I idea that there is no blame...that everything I experience as a trigger or as hardship or suffering is simply created by my attachment to my beliefs...which are thoughts I think over and over; whether or not they are true.
This as an awesome book. Check out Byron Katie's other works as well. Well worth the listen.
Someone who doesn't mind being called 'hon' or 'sweetie', she sounded condescending and it didn't sit well with me. I couldn't listen to it.
Talked more about the subject instead of making most of the book be her conversations with others. Unhelpful.
Kimberly Farr did a nice job of narration.
The book could have been about 4 pages long. Instead it is just a long stream of listening to Katie have conversations with others with problems. Not what I thought I was purchasing. And not only that, she uses condescending language when talking to them, at least that is how it sounded in the audio. Couldn't get through this at all.
Freedom, peace, enlightening
I love this book. I've read it three times before. I bought the audio version because I like listening to the dialogues between Katie and people doing The Work. I was disappointed to discover that it is just being read by another person. The dialogues are difficult to understand because it is just someone reading them, with little emotion and no distinction between the voice of Katie and the person she is working with.
A Life-Long Learner!
I honestly couldn't make it through half of this audio. I really don't remember much about the audio besides her life story. TOO BORING!
