Product Description

From the Inside Flap

Everybody's talking at us. In today's world, we are bombarded by voices from the outside that tell us everything from how beautiful, thin, and successful we could be to how frightened and angry we should feel. It's easy to internalize this constant bombardment of negative, agenda-driven noise. When we let them in, these voices can skew our self-image and clash with our personal dreams and values, causing depression, anxiety, workplace issues, family problems, and more. Worse, the cacophony of sound from the modern world can drown out the interior voice of conscience that serves as our inner navigation system. It doesn't have to be that way.

10 Conversations You Need to Have with Yourself takes self-talk to a whole new level. Bestselling author and counselor Rabbi Shmuley Boteach explains how internalized negative voices can pull you away from who you really are and reveals what you can do to rediscover your authentic self and find genuine happiness via guided conversations with yourself. Drawing on dramatic true stories from his work counseling others, he helps you recognize negative self-talk and replace it with positive communication with the real you.

The ten conversations Rabbi Shmuley identifies and explores in this book will speak to your character on the deepest level and help you decide what you truly want from life. With Rabbi Shmuley's guidance, you will discover and learn to listen to:

  • Your true voice of inspiration, which motivates you to be a greater person than you ever believed possible. By speaking with this voice, you will learn to choose love over attention and make use of your ego for positive change.

  • Your voice of conscience, which gives you the power to choose to do what is right over what comes easiest. In conversations with this voice, you will learn how to find feeling through doing and become a blessing rather than a burden.

  • Your inner self, the deepest voice of all—the essence of who you really are. This voice will remind you of the importance of struggle and triumph and the knowledge of your own individual gift.

At the end of each conversation, Rabbi Shmuley provides detailed questions for you to ask yourself. Answering them will help you to create your own personal design for living the way you were meant to live and be the person you were truly meant to be.

From the Back Cover

10 Conversations You Need to Have with Yourself

"Rabbi Shmuley's book focuses on the heart of Gandhi's great call to 'be the change you wish to see in the world.' Readers who seek to live a life more consistent with their higher calling and who wrestle with the daily challenge to be a more righteous person will find compelling wisdom in Shmuley's words."
Mayor Cory Booker

"In this age of multitasking, bombarding media, and pervasive communications, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach reminds us of the centrality of our own inner voices. Read this book, listen to your own voice, and repair yourself and the world."
Alan Dershowitz, New York Times bestselling author of The Trials of Zion and The Case for Israel, Felix Frankfurter Professor, Harvard Law School

"Rabbi Shmuley Boteach has always spoken with the voice of conscience. In this important book, he gives the reader important practical advice on how to transcend the demands of practical life and achieve something deeper and more meaningful."
Noah Feldman, author of Scorpions, Bemis Professor, Harvard University

"I loved Rabbi Shmuley's 10 Conversations You Need to Have with Your Children and have used it to guide and inspire my own kids. 10 Conversations You Need to Have with Yourself reminds us to follow our inner GPS in a culture that rewards us for what we do and make, rather than who we are."
Laurie Cantillo, Program Director of WABC radio

"With his trademark wisdom and wit, Rabbi Shmuley conveys a profound and relevant message in this thoroughly enjoyable read. In 10 Conversations You Need to Have with Yourself, Boteach puts his finger on the pulse of the culture and writes a prescription for what ails it."
Ron Dermer, senior advisor to the Prime Minister of Israel

"This enlightening book, written by one of today's most effective conversationalists, is a powerful guide to recalibrating our internal¿road maps."
Michael Harrison, Publisher, Talkers

"I'm convinced that Rabbi Shmuley didn't so much write this book as transcribe our own hearts' pleas for a life of meaning, which is so often drowned out by the clanging of our culture's superficiality."
Lisa Allred Bloom, legal consultant for CBS News

"Boteach possesses one of the most fertile minds of our generation."
Dennis Prager, author of Happiness Is a Serious Problem

Surprisingly good read and .... July 8 2012
By JeMicheSunshine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Became acquainted with Rabbi Shmuley during his show "Shalom for the Home"; great show! When I was younger, I may not have been able to read this book because it tends to unintentionally alienate a 'certain' reader. BUT because I am more wise and older, I was able to get so much out of this book. Rabbi Shmuley says things in different ways that can help; that do help. He gives insight to common things that some of us tend to not think of or have forgotten. This book is very powerful for couples because he hilights things that men (and women) should have been taught or told. He uses himself to draw on the lesson that he tries to impart; which makes this book very honest and not preachy. He does 'name drop' but that's okay as well, because he attempts to use that in the lesson as well. The book is a quick and easy read. I would definitely recommend it as something to read to give your life a little better meaning or to affirm those things that many don't do or say anymore. The Seller's price point was good; and the delivery time was good as well. Would definitely purchase from this Seller again. Enjoy!

I sat back and took this whole book in. It gave me many things to ponder, and gave me tools to use. I wasn't always in agreement on every view the author had, but enough for this book to be a great listen and learn. I highly recommend.

Not what I expected Jan. 2 2012
By JeanMarie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Mostly, this book was an easy read that presented the same stuff found in other books of this type. There really was not much new, although I appreciated the concept of "embrace the struggle." I thought the author included too much about his own situation/struggles, so it was more of a "learn from my experiences" kind of book--I found it difficult to relate to much of it.
