Publisher's Summary

In Loving What Is, best-selling author Byron Katie introduced thousands of people to her simple and profound method of finding happiness through questioning the mind. Now, I Need Your Love, Is That True? examines a universal, age-old source of anxiety: our relationships with others. In this groundbreaking book, Katie helps you question everything you have been taught to do to gain love and approval. In doing this, you discover how to find genuine love and connection.

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.

    "The Work is amazing"
    Where does I Need Your Love, Is That True? rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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


    What about Kimberly Farr’s performance did you like?

    It was good although I prefer to listen to Byron Katie


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    An Amazing Gift Not to Be Missed

    "Awesome!"
    If you could sum up I Need Your Love, Is That True? in three words, what would they be?

    Insightful, Enlightening, Life-Changing.


    What does Kimberly Farr bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    This as an awesome book. Check out Byron Katie's other works as well. Well worth the listen.

    Story
    "Just not for me"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    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.


    What could Byron Katie have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Talked more about the subject instead of making most of the book be her conversations with others. Unhelpful.


    Which character – as performed by Kimberly Farr – was your favorite?

    Kimberly Farr did a nice job of narration.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Disappointed in audio version"
    If you could sum up I Need Your Love, Is That True? in three words, what would they be?

    Freedom, peace, enlightening


    What didn’t you like about Kimberly Farr’s performance?

    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.

    "Severely boring!"

    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!
