Review quote

Review of A Friendly Universe "Byron Katie describes her job as teaching people how to stop suffering. In 1986, she had an epiphany and realized that all suffering, including her own depression, anger, and addiction, comes from believing our thoughts. She delivered a four-step method of inquiry called The Work. It is based onfour questions and has proven to be a life changing spiritual tool for millions. Set to the backdrop of award-winning artist Hans Wilhelm's full color illustrations, this paperback contains inspiring aphorisms from Katie's writings and speeches."
--Spirituality & Practice Reviews of Loving What Is "Byron Katie's Work is a great blessing for our planet. The root cause of suffering is identification with our thoughts, the 'stories' that are continuously running through our minds. Byron Katie's Work acts like a razor-sharp sword that cuts through that illusion and enables you to know for yourself the timeless essence of your being. Joy, peace, and love emanate from it as your natural state. In Loving What Is, you have the key. Now use it."
--Eckhart Tolle, author of The Power of Now "Suppose you could find a simple way to embrace your life with joy, stop arguing with reality, and achieve serenity in the midst of chaos? That is what Loving What Is offers. It is no less than a revolutionary way to live your life. The question is: are we brave enough to accept it?"
--Erica Jong, author of Fear of Flying "Loving What Is is filled with the essence of wisdom. Katie's Work is a wonderful, transformative practice for anyone interested in spiritual growth."
--Lama Surya Das, author of Awakening the Buddha Within "Good Lord! Where did Byron Katie come from? She's the real McCoy. Her Work is amazingly effective--a simple, straightforward antidote to the suffering we unnecessarily create for ourselves. She asks us to believe nothing, but provides a surprisingly effective and simple way to cut through the tangle of delusions we wrap ourselves in. Just reading the exchanges in Loving What Is, I can admit things I didn't want to admit and stop torturing myself in ways I didn't realize I was doing."
--David Chadwick, author of Crooked Cucumber: The Life and Zen Teaching of Shunryu Suzuki
