"In A Mind at Home with Itself, Byron Katie illuminates one of the most profound ancient Buddhist texts, The Diamond Sutra (newly translated in these pages by distinguished scholar Stephen Mitchell) to reveal the nature of the mind and to liberate us from painful thoughts, using her revolutionary system of self-inquiry called 'The Work.' Byron Katie doesn't merely describe the awakened mind; she empowers us to see it and feel it in action. At once startlingly fresh and powerfully enlightening, A Mind at Home with Itself offers us a transformative new perspective on life and death and is certain to become a classic." -- From book jacket.

I love Byron Katie's "Work" but I feel she went a little over the top in this book. Although I understand the concepts she presents the language made her come across as a little "out there". "There is no self and no other. It's true that there is no truth and no non-truth. There are no separate things and no non-separate things..If you believe theres a world, you have two..." O.K. I grasp what she's saying but it all gets to be a little much, especially when she relates getting hand caught in juicer and marveling how beautiful the blood and crumpling fingers were. A few pearls in and amongst I guess.
