About the Author

Roy Masters, who in his 80s, continues to broadcast the longest-running counseling show in talk radio history. "Advice Line," is an internationally syndicated daily radio program where callers discuss their most intimate problems and find genuine help and healing. For over 53 years, Roy has served as a daily voice of sanity and conscience to his listeners, with the uncanny ability to zero in quickly on core problems and help people take charge of their own lives. Over years of counseling as well as personal experience, Roy realized that the root of the power of negative suggestion lay in our wrong emotional response, and so he began to search for a way to help people overcome the hypnotic power of stress. After years of searching, he discovered a remarkably effective meditation method, and has been teaching it—with spectacular results—ever since. This “meditation exercise”—a simple observation technique called “Be Still and Know,” named after the Psalm “Be still and know that I am God”—is at the core not only of Masters’ unmatched track record in helping people overcome even the most serious mental-emotional problems, but now comprises the centerpiece of a successful program within the U.S. military (“Patriot Outreach”) that is aiding thousands of U.S. military personnel and their families overcome the ravages of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). As the institutional home for his counseling work, Masters’ formed the Foundation of Human Understanding, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, in 1961. Through his daily radio broadcasts, lectures, seminars, his 18 books, countless audio and video programs—and now, over the Internet—he has helped millions worldwide, including many celebrities like the late John Wayne, extricate themselves from vexing personal problems, substance abuse and emotional traumas. He has also established a successful prison outreach and an innovative private K-12 school. Beyond all this, and at a time in life when most people would have long since retired, an energetic Roy Masters is delving deeply into yet another long-time interest—physics and cosmology. He has authored “Finding God in Physics” as well as a more technical treatise, “Gravity Driven Universe” and has lectured on “Electricity from Gravity” at the American Physical Society in Denver. Roy Masters and his wife Ann have been married since 1952. They have five grown children and 18 grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

By Jeffery L. Guidry on April 26, 2004
Format: Paperback
If you've read the brief bio about Roy Masters then you already know he's a radio personality, born Jewish but a believer in Christ. He uses this book to give his take on the food/woman/original sin connection, and demonstrates how the original sin of the forbidden fruit from woman is the downfall of man. From a political standpoint, this is tough to swallow, especially if you are a liberal. However, Roy's analysis stands up to millenia of human development and religious understanding, and if you can look at the ideas without your political/socialized brain, you might be able to see that he has a point.
Roy's writing style is a bit rambling. He very frequently repeats ideas throughout the course of the narrative; with proper editing, the book could have been about half its length. It's quite stream-of-conciousness, but this is the reason why I think it works. Instead of tricking you into word traps and setting up logic walls, Roy simply points out explicit connections between your anger and the need to find solace in something. For humans, this is usually in the form of food or sex, though drugs, alcohol, and music can also be mind-numbing and addictive. Roy advocates reconnecting with the spirit of God and learning to still the constant cacophony of images that serve to seperate you from God.
If you have ever been to Sunday school or gotten any sort of religious instruction, Roy's message will hardly be new to you. But for me he has put together the idea of sin through food and redemption through God in a way that has helped me to see my failings.
If you come to this book expecting a weight-loss guide, look elsewhere. Roy wants to help you find a way to let go of your compulsions, not help you lose weight.

This book may be a little hard for some people to digest, pun intended, especially if you reject even the possibility that there was an Adam & Eve in the Garden of Eden. But it has such simple truths about the reasons why people eat unhealthily either through deception or through their own attempts of finding satisfaction without God. I haven't been able to look at food the same way since and it's changed my habits and health for the better. I recommend this book for anyone who has any form of eating disorder, from extreme to just being careless about what you stuff in your fat mouth, which was the case for me. I am now losing weight effortlessly, I'm not really dieting, or exercising, I still eat all the same foods more or less that I did before, but I am more aware, I've changed the reasons of why I eat, which has made all the difference. Thank you Roy!

Confused about why you overeat? Why your health is down the tubes? Roy's perspective is mind blowing for Christians, explaining how our mothers and wives spread joy by forcing us to eat unhealthy foods which act like little jesuses false profits that take away the pain of life while destroying us in the process. If it sounds like the garden, it is.

No one has more common sense than Roy Masters. The world and God are at odds, and people need to understand that. Roy shows it over and over, but still, the human race is just a bit higher than the animals. If you are looking to evolve, read any of Roy's books. The titles don't do the books justice.

I really loved this book. It isn't really about diets and eating. It's about how you think and what you allow yourself to think. It is a great book.
