About this item

Following his bestselling Your Erroneous Zones , et seq., this encouraging, helpful volume augurs an increase in Dyer's audience. Citing the wisdom of ancient and modern philosophers, the author adds incidents from his experiences to illustrate the benefits of spiritual guidance and possibilities of transformation. Serendipity, or what Dyer believes are miracles, have given him riches that he declares are available to all. He counsels that one must first see the human as a soul with a body--not the reverse--to realize supposedly impossible dreams. Dyer describes the blessings he and others have gained from getting rid of anger, fears and the desire for revenge: impedimenta to the good life. The advice, while generalized, is not simplistic and will, on the evidence he adduces, likely convert many doubters to Dyer's faith in a universe ruled by a divine provi dence.



About the Author

Wayne W. Dyer

Wayne Walter Dyer was a popular American self-help advocate, author and lecturer. His 1976 book Your Erroneous Zones has sold over 30 million copies and is one of the best-selling books of all time. It is said to have "[brought] humanistic ideas to the masses".He received his D.Ed. degree in counseling from Wayne State University. He was a guidance counselor in Detroit at the high school level and a professor of counselor education at St. John's University in New York. He first pursued an academic career, publishing in journals and running a successful private therapy practice, but his lectures at St. John's, which focused on positive thinking and motivational speaking techniques, attracted students beyond those enrolled. A literary agent persuaded Dyer to package his ideas in book form, resulting in Your Erroneous Zones; although initial sales were thin, Dyer quit his teaching job and began a publicity tour of the United States, doggedly pursuing bookstore appearances and media interviews ("out of the back of his station wagon", according to Michael Korda, making the best-seller lists "before book publishers even noticed what was happening"
