"In very clear and available language, this book details how to recognize the inner critic and how to deal effectively with it. Byron Brown's presentation is useful for any individual who wishes to be free from the inner suffering and coercion of this ancient foe of our humanity, but it is specifically directed to those interested and engaged in the inner journey toward realization and enlightenment."—A. H. Almaas

Reseña del editor
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 reader move along the path of self-discovery.

Brown explains how the inner critic is a collection of opinions, standards and behaviors that we learned when we were little, mostly from our parents. The critic functions as an internal parent, advising us what's right for us, morally, socially and personally. For example: "Work hard, don't cry, don't show anger, be careful of such-and-such people, be a nice girl, be a big boy." Whenever we are doing something that this internal parent considers "wrong", it becomes a critic that uses shame, blame, humiliation, threats and fear to get us back in line.
While this internal critic was helpful when we were young and kept us out of trouble, as adults its control has become largely unnecessary and, in fact, is now stifling us in our everyday life. We have sufficient wisdom, intelligence and plain common sense to lead our lives, but our inner critic continues to run much of the show. It keeps us small, tells us we're screw-ups, scares us away from anything new, threatens us with ridicule by others and warns us not to make waves. And the disconcerting thing about it is that we think this is us, giving ourselves good, truthful advice, while it's really a repetitive and constricting ghost from the past. What's more, the inner critic uses our own vitality to power its constant judging and commentary, sapping us of the strength we need to live our lives fully.
Brown describes the origins of the inner critic, its effects on one's life, and in chapters 18 and 20 details the most revolutionary part of the book: defending against the inner critic. Readers may be a bit shocked at the strength of the language Brown uses to tell the inner critic to shut up and get out. But upon trying the exercises we can feel how our strength, usurped by the inner critic, once again becomes available to us so we can stand up to the criticism and act freely in our lives, guided by our own capacities.
Soul without Shame is a precise and multifaceted manual to understand and become free of the inner critic's limiting action in our lives. The recurring scenes between Frank and Sue give a direct illustration of the main points the book makes, as do the many case studies. Altogether, this book is for anyone who wants to know more about that critical voice in their head and learn how to live life more fully.
The bad out of this book is REALLY weird to me, though. In between each chapter is a story of this couple as they learn to deal with their "inner judge" and how they deal with each other's "judge". The stories were alright, it brought it to a practical level, but every now and then it would get strange. Like the woman remembering when she was a baby and crying and her parents not coming and getting her. I have my doubts that that is even possible, but mainly it is just there were parts that I could not identify with at all.
But as with most books of this sort you have to take the good and leave the bad, and the good here is well worth it.
