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.

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!!

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.
I will probably listen to it again. There is a lot to absorb here.
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.
His voice brings depth, authority.
There a thousand things that moved me about this book. To name one would be impossible.
For anyone who has ever listened to Tolle's Power of Know--this IS the flashlight that cuts through the fog.
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!!!
