Publisher's Summary

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER

"This radiant book will not only change your life, but perhaps even save it." (Elizabeth Gilbert, number one New York Times best-selling author)

"Martha Beck's genius is that her writing is equal parts comforting and challenging. A teacher, a mother, a sage, she holds our hand as she leads us back home to ourselves." (Glennon Doyle, number one New York Times best-selling author)

Best-selling author, life coach and sociologist Martha Beck explains why "integrity" - needed now more than ever in these tumultuous times - is the key to a meaningful and joyful life

As Martha Beck says in her book, "Integrity is the cure for psychological suffering. Period." 

In The Way of Integrity, Beck presents a four-stage process that anyone can use to find integrity, and with it, a sense of purpose, emotional healing, and a life free of mental suffering. Much of what plagues us - people pleasing, staying in stale relationships, negative habits - all point to what happens when we are out of touch with what truly makes us feel whole.

Inspired by The Divine Comedy, Beck uses Dante's classic hero's journey as a framework to break down the process of attaining personal integrity into small, manageable steps. She shows how to read our internal signals that lead us towards our true path, and to recognize what we actually yearn for versus what our culture sells us.

With techniques tested on hundreds of her clients, Beck brings her expertise as a social scientist, life coach and human being to help listeners to uncover what integrity looks like in their own lives. She takes us on a spiritual adventure that not only will change the direction of our lives, but bring us to a place of genuine happiness.

Critic Reviews

“In an age of nonstop pressure to conform we often lose connection to truth and meaning. But Martha Beck has written this masterpiece, initiating a new path forward, one of integrity, showing us how to embrace our authentic self for unlimited freedom.” (Shannon Kaiser, international best-selling author of The Self-Love Experiment)

“Martha Beck's genius is that her writing is equal parts comforting and challenging. A teacher, a mother, a sage, she holds our hand as she leads us back home to ourselves.” (Glennon Doyle, number-one New York Times best-selling author of Untamed)

“Beck freely shares her own journey and challenges pilgrims to face up to fears and embrace their inner guides...many will be moved by Beck's sincerity and lucid techniques." (Booklist)

This is the book I’ve been waiting for

I am amazed and grateful for the clarity of guidance this book provides.
Take the time to do the exercises. They don’t take long and they put her word into action so don’t skip!
I have not sleep well since January 2020, and when I woke up again at 3 am this morning, I didn’t have the same feeling of dread. This book is for anyone feeling disconnected, anxious, depressed, or confused about their life.

Life changing !!! Best self help book EVER!!

This is the best book I’ve ever heard or read in my life. EVER. I’ve read so many self help books and each one helped me along the path. This one stands out at a time when it’s so needed. So refreshingly honest and funny. So delighted that the author herself narrated it. I truly believe ( am I absolutely sure of this? No) that if a majority of humans read this book and actually applied it to their lives, we would find ourselves in an entirely wonderful, loving, empowering world. Truly life changing. Help yourself get out of the inferno of your thoughts.

Amazing all the way through the last word.

I’ve read every book Martha Beck has written and I’m one of her Master Coaches, but this one has gripped my heart. These words were meant for now or anytime the world or someone’s life feels tangled. Weaving Dante’s story with hers, the incredible honesty she shares, the immense love and passion that represent who Martha Beck truly is, shine like a beacon of hope needed now and always. Thank you, Martha. I’m beginning with page one again tomorrow. Can’t wait to live into it and share it with others!

Magically Pragmatic.

Martha believes in science, philosophy, spirituality, and her own story to craft an approach to stepping into our potential that is easy to understand and execute.

Interesting and insightful

A little too heavy on the politically correct platitudes, but very insightful and useful information. This one is definitely worth a listen.

Happiness beyond words! -this book bought me peace and love, entire and whole

Having Martha Beck read her own novel made this book feel completely whole. It caught my attention immediately and after listening to the entire book, had me wanting to re-read Dantes work with fresh eyes. Many good exercises that changed my perception. Thank you MB !!

Magical.

Loved it. I was looking forward to the next chapter. I love the way she describes lack of Integrity, the dirt on the window. HIGHLY RECOMANDED.
