Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Byron Katie is one of the truly great and inspiring teachers of our time. I encourage everyone to immerse themselves in this phenomenal book.-Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

In her first two books, Loving What Is and I Need Your Love–Is That True? Byron Katie showed how suffering can be ended by questioning the stressful thoughts that create it. Now, in A Thousand Names for Joy, she encourages us to discover the freedom that lives on the other side of inquiry.

Stephen Mitchell–the renowned translator of the Tao Te Ching–selected provocative excerpts from that ancient text as a stimulus for Katie to talk about the most essential issues that face us all: life and death, good and evil, love, work, and fulfillment. With her stories of total ease in all circumstances, Katie does more than describe the awakened mind; she lets you see it, feel it, in action.
From The Publisher*This unusual collaboration brings together the Way (the Tao) and the Work, Katie's form of self-inquiry and path to joy. In each chapter, Mitchell presents Katie with a passage from the Tao and she offers an exposition on that theme.
Review Quote*"Byron Katie is one of the truly great and inspiring teachers of our time. She has been enormously helpful to me personally. I love this very wise woman, and I encourage everyone to immerse themselves in this phenomenal book."
-Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

"A Thousand Names for Joy is a vivid and powerful portrait of the awakened mind. I am captivated by Katie's clear mind and loving heart, which offer the world a simple process to find joy. Who knew? Katie did, and what a blessing she offers to us all."
-Iyanla Vanzant, founder, Inner Visions Institute

"Katie's teachings and everyday life are pure wisdom. A Thousand Names for Joy shows us the way to inner peace, and she directs us there fearlessly, relentlessly, and with utmost generosity. I have rarely seen anyone-spiritual teachers included-embody wisdom as powerfully as Katie in her passionate embrace of each and every moment."
-Roshi Bernie Glassman

"Byron Katie's Work . . . acts like a razor-sharp sword that cuts through illusion and enables you to know for yourself the timeless essence of your being."
-Eckhart Tolle, author of The Power of Now
