Publisher's Summary

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER

"This radiant book will not only change your life, but perhaps even save it." (Elizabeth Gilbert, number one New York Times best-selling author)

"Martha Beck's genius is that her writing is equal parts comforting and challenging. A teacher, a mother, a sage, she holds our hand as she leads us back home to ourselves." (Glennon Doyle, number one New York Times best-selling author)

Best-selling author, life coach and sociologist Martha Beck explains why "integrity" - needed now more than ever in these tumultuous times - is the key to a meaningful and joyful life

As Martha Beck says in her book, "Integrity is the cure for psychological suffering. Period." 

In The Way of Integrity, Beck presents a four-stage process that anyone can use to find integrity, and with it, a sense of purpose, emotional healing, and a life free of mental suffering. Much of what plagues us - people pleasing, staying in stale relationships, negative habits - all point to what happens when we are out of touch with what truly makes us feel whole.

Inspired by The Divine Comedy, Beck uses Dante's classic hero's journey as a framework to break down the process of attaining personal integrity into small, manageable steps. She shows how to read our internal signals that lead us towards our true path, and to recognize what we actually yearn for versus what our culture sells us.

With techniques tested on hundreds of her clients, Beck brings her expertise as a social scientist, life coach and human being to help listeners to uncover what integrity looks like in their own lives. She takes us on a spiritual adventure that not only will change the direction of our lives, but bring us to a place of genuine happiness.

What the critics say

“In an age of nonstop pressure to conform we often lose connection to truth and meaning. But Martha Beck has written this masterpiece, initiating a new path forward, one of integrity, showing us how to embrace our authentic self for unlimited freedom.” (Shannon Kaiser, international best-selling author of The Self-Love Experiment)

“Martha Beck's genius is that her writing is equal parts comforting and challenging. A teacher, a mother, a sage, she holds our hand as she leads us back home to ourselves.” (Glennon Doyle, number-one New York Times best-selling author of Untamed)

“Beck freely shares her own journey and challenges pilgrims to face up to fears and embrace their inner guides...many will be moved by Beck's sincerity and lucid techniques." (Booklist)

Thank you!

Listened to super soul conversations with Oprah and Martha Beck was the guest. She started the show and spoke about the book and thought I should give it a try.

For the first time I related to soo many things in this book. I will definitely be listening to it again.

Love that she talks about the incredible spiritual teachers such has Eckhart Tole, Byron Kathie & Maya Angelou.

I highly recommend this book to anyone on a spiritual awakening!

AMAZING!!!! AND SURPRISINGLY FUNNY!

I absolutely loved this book!!!
I have read a lot of self help/ inspirational books and this one tops them all. She gives such good solid advice backed up with clear exercises in every chapter which make you look deep inside yourself AND they actually help, it’s a little mind blowing. I like how she weaves it into a story so that it’s just not advice but it’s entertaining.
I also love love loved her quick sense of humour, she had me laughing out loud, as I didn’t expect it at all.

I would recommend this to every human being.
SO good👍🏻

This is the book I’ve been waiting for

I am amazed and grateful for the clarity of guidance this book provides.
Take the time to do the exercises. They don’t take long and they put her word into action so don’t skip!
I have not sleep well since January 2020, and when I woke up again at 3 am this morning, I didn’t have the same feeling of dread. This book is for anyone feeling disconnected, anxious, depressed, or confused about their life.

Life changing !!! Best self help book EVER!!

This is the best book I’ve ever heard or read in my life. EVER. I’ve read so many self help books and each one helped me along the path. This one stands out at a time when it’s so needed. So refreshingly honest and funny. So delighted that the author herself narrated it. I truly believe ( am I absolutely sure of this? No) that if a majority of humans read this book and actually applied it to their lives, we would find ourselves in an entirely wonderful, loving, empowering world. Truly life changing. Help yourself get out of the inferno of your thoughts.

Amazing all the way through the last word.

I’ve read every book Martha Beck has written and I’m one of her Master Coaches, but this one has gripped my heart. These words were meant for now or anytime the world or someone’s life feels tangled. Weaving Dante’s story with hers, the incredible honesty she shares, the immense love and passion that represent who Martha Beck truly is, shine like a beacon of hope needed now and always. Thank you, Martha. I’m beginning with page one again tomorrow. Can’t wait to live into it and share it with others!

Magically Pragmatic.

Martha believes in science, philosophy, spirituality, and her own story to craft an approach to stepping into our potential that is easy to understand and execute.

Read it twice

This book was very helpful. It offered an unique perspective of looking at the world and how it reacts to your actions. The writing exercises were very helpful and can be done multiple times with different issues or ideas..

Pleasantly surprised by this woman's work!

I had some apprehension about getting this title. Quite honestly I wasn't sure I'd be able to relate to her. I was most certainly wrong. By a number of "coincidences" this book was brought to me so I felt I must give it a shot. I've read a ton of "self help" books and wasn't sure how this would be different enough to offer something that would deeply resonate. I'm so glad I got past my own judgment! Martha offers such insightful wisdom with honestly, vulnerability and HUMOUR! I adore her! She had much to say about current times that I felt was honest, direct and brave. I found myself relating to her experiences and perspectives. Her insights are invaluable and practically applicable. Thank you Martha! Your work is a gift. Namaste.

This is a MUST listen/read

My mind was blown in the beginning with the actual definition of “integrity”. The story parable and the lessons throughout are easy to listen to, connect with, and absorb.

If you’re wondering what it truly means to be “you” out how you could possibly live a life of “you” then this book is for YOU.
