Byron Katie's extremely simple programme called The Work was explored in her previous, hugely popular, book, 'Loving What Is'. In it she explained how easy it is to be confused by the mental gymnastics we all play in our minds, and how looking closely at our thoughts - and whether they are true - can bring us a life of integrity and happiness. Her second book questions everything we have been taught to think and do to gain love and approval and shows how to make the transition to an effective, non-manipulative way of connecting with others. When you live your life focused on thoughts such as 'I need a man' or 'She doesn't care about me' you live in fear and end up lonely, stressed, heartbroken and depressed. However, when you start to explore The Work, you can begin to enquire into many of the unquestioned beliefs you have lived by, and can begin to change. Through 'I Need Your Love - Is It True?' readers can explore what happens in their mind when they believe they need love, appreciation and approval. When they realise the truth of what's really going on inside them there is no doubt they can find real love and mutual understanding, expecially with the help of Byron Katie's wisdom and compassion.

In Mind Change, Susan Greenfield discusses the all-pervading technologies that now surround us, and from which we derive instant information, connected identity, diminished privacy and exceptionally vivid here-and-now experiences. In her view they are creating a new environment, with vast implications, because our minds are physically adapting: being rewired. What could this mean, and how can we harness, rather than be harnessed by, our new technological milieu to create better alternatives and more meaningful lives? Using the very latest research, Mind Change is intended to incite debate as well as yield the way forward. There is no better person to explain the situation in a way we can understand, and to offer new insights on how to improve our mental capacities and well being.
