Publisher's Summary

Whether we call it the inner critic, superego, or just plain nag, most of us have a "judge within" who's constantly on our case. A comprehensive guide to understanding how the inner critic works, this book offers practical, positive suggestions for breaking free of it. Using straightforward language and examples from everyday life, Byron Brown shows: Where the inner judge came from. How it operates. Why it trips us up. Why we believe we need it. How to develop awareness of it. How to disengage from it. The "soul qualities" we can develop to weaken its influence. Each chapter begins with an episode of the "Frank and Sue story", dramatically illustrating how the inner critic works; each chapter ends with a simple exercise designed to help the listener move along the path of self-discovery.

So wonderful!!!

I am a Diamond Approach student and this presentation of "the Work" has been life changing. Mr. Brown has done an amazing job of translating the teachings in such a way that I gained understanding that had eluded me for the 7 years I've been a student. Thank you!!

Very insightful.

With each chapter, you learn more about yourself and your inner critic. The examples the author uses are perfectly illustrated to allow you to challenge your own inner critic.

Very helpful to my personal growth

The super ego has been a most difficult area to deal with. Byron Brown does an excellent job with helping me to see the subtle ways it hurts my relationships and inner happiness. I first read the hard copy and now find I’m reading to take the material to a deeper level and enjoyed the Audible version very much.

A Real Eye Opener

If you could sum up Soul Without Shame in three words, what would they be?

Revealing, Simple, Mind-altering.

What other book might you compare Soul Without Shame to and why?

Mindset - Carol Dweck

What three words best describe Fajer Al-Kaisi’s voice?

Stacato, Dull, Boring

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No the underlying story of how we are programmed and why we think the way we do was an ongoing mantra and done very well.

Any additional comments?

I will probably listen to it again. There is a lot to absorb here.

Astounding, brilliant....

Would you consider the audio edition of Soul Without Shame to be better than the print version?

I wouldn't consider the print version because the way the brain interprets sound is different from the way it interprets words. Overthinking, rationalizing, judging--all these things can be softened by allowing yourself to sit back and listen.

Who was your favorite character and why?

N/A

What does Fajer Al-Kaisi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His voice brings depth, authority.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There a thousand things that moved me about this book. To name one would be impossible.

Any additional comments?

For anyone who has ever listened to Tolle's Power of Know--this IS the flashlight that cuts through the fog.

Offensive!!!

If a writer has to use pornography and foul language to make a point or to keep you interested in his topic, then he's not a very good writer. I wish I could give this a ZERO it was that bad!!!

Get ready to realise your Judge is NOT your friend

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Any additional comments?

This is a great book for anyone who isn't into psychology mumbo jumbo.. puts things into perspective and practical ways to really get to know yourself, good, bad and ugly.
