“The Hairball Diaries” by Katy Byrne

“The Hairball Diaries: The Courage to Speak Up” by Katy Byrne. Illustrator: Steve Klein. Published by LangMarc Press, 2006.

What a delightful book! With a lot of humor, and an easy conversational style, Katy Byrne moves right into some deep, important material. Katy’s use of thoughtful self-disclosure allows the reader to connect with the material in a meaningful way—this is not a book of dry ideas, it is a meaty, “hairy” book of insights, ideas, and stories.

In this book, Katy covers topics as varied as Relationships, Careers, and Addiction. Through her journaling questions, she invites readers to develop a deep understanding of themselves and of what it is that they need and want in their lives.

For anyone who wants a lighthearted look at some serious topics, and wants journaling questions that can lead to serious thought and self disclosure, this may just be the book for you.

Besides, she tells us all about her cat Einstein. For a cat lover like me, it doesn’t get any better than this. Thanks, Katy, for your important contribution!
