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.

A Life Changing Book

This book has changed my life forever! I look at everything differently today knowing now that most issues are about me and not "the other person." I have listened to this book four complete times, and I look forward to listening to it many more times. If you are truly ready to begin your life journey and forgive yourself for whatever has happened in the past, you will feel blessed to have found this book. I am a reader of spiritual and self development books, and this book is the best!

Learn how to really love

This book was just what I needed to see love is everywhere and that searching for it will only cause pain. It breaks co-dependency, makes you independent and teaches you how to love yourself. Great book!

What did you love best about I Need Your Love, Is That True??

The interesting exercises that are very provokative of honest inquiry

Would you recommend I Need Your Love, Is That True? to your friends? Why or why not?

No, I would recommend, "Loving What Is"
THe down side of this audio is that the personal examples were staged, acted out. THis took away from the genuineness for me. When I listened to , "loving what is" the live interviews were what blew me away, as I could experience the genuineness and was deeply moved. Having these interviews staged, even though they were real, did take away a great deal from my ability to receive them well. Since Katie's approach is so radical, I need the live stuff to make it real for me.

What did you learn from I Need Your Love, Is That True? that you would use in your daily life?

I am already using her exercises in my daily life. I really, really like the places they take me, toward greater levels of honesty.

Any additional comments?

Byron Katie's work is worth a second and a third look. There is gold here.

It is a receipe for Joy

I have suffered depression for 30 years.Byron Katie and all her works are the best medicine known to me after 30 years of very sincere search.I found listening to be far more effective as compared to reading..For me she is GOD. My account erruneosly shows me as from USA instead of India.

I Need Your Love, Is That True?

Brilliant! Byron Katie guides us through 'the work' giving the most amazing tool to navigate the tyranny of the egoic mind.

Life-changing

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

Her work is very thought-provoking. I never thought to look at my negative thoughts like that. This is about approval-seeking, but it can be used in all areas of our lives. I wish it was longer and gave out more examples, because her techniques are quite difficult to understand.

Any additional comments?

Her narration is excellent, but the others were robotic.

Byron Katie is a genius

I never usually write written reviews, but after reading it again I have to describe it as one of the greatest and most profound I've ever come across. Deeper with every listen. I could barely recommend it more.
