About the Author

Theron Q. Dumont was one of the many pen names of William Walker Atkinson. Atkinson wasa leading figure in the late 19th Centurys New Thought Movement which is the foundation of many of our current New Age beliefs. William Walker Atkinson was a successful lawyer, but the stress and strain of his unenlightened pursuit of wealth and prestige resulted in a complete physical and mental breakdown, and ultimate financial disaster. For Walker, this was merely the darkest hour before the dawn: after discovering and mastering the principles of New Thought, he rebuilt his health and his career on a stronger and more stable foundation than he had ever conceived of before. He also began to write extensively, under several psuedonyms, illuminating the world with his New Thought. Many of his books are still very popular today.... true wisdom never goes out of style, and William Walker Atkinson was a true master. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Why a book on concentration? Well, there are countless self-help books which just encourage you to pursue your desires, some of them with specific advices in some domains. However, the basis of all this is your innate power - and such books try to make you aware and get you to DO instead of thinking about it. This book isn't different in this regard, however, what is different is the explanation that the power to pursue your ideals comes from the power of concentration, for such pursue is the focusing of your bodily, emotional and mental abilities on doing that, a concentration power which can, needs and should be awakened through training. Concentration is of utmost importance, for without it becomes difficult to follow what such other books teach. This is an important lesson - master your mind and all the world is yours, and the way to get there is to train it. My comment - this is after all the purpose of such practices as yoga - mind control, your own mind, this is all that matters.

Most of this book deals with aspects on how concentration could help you every way of life, why you should do it, you are encouraged to go ahead, pursue your desires, enhance and strenghen your mind. Once you have made that decision, you will start to control your life, and maybe other people when you become skillfull enough. Opportunities don't come to us, we must seek them, not give up. The second part provides practical exercises on getting there gradually.

Books are good only to awaken you, to make you aware of your innate power. Look for good things, for you will get back what you offer. Positive thoughts attract positive outcomes, reverse is also true. My comment: this seems to be same as the Karmic law in Asian spiritual traditions.

I found this book 40 years ago when I was a struggling teenager. Today I am a sucessful multi-millionaire.
If you are ready, this book is a roadmap to developing your powers. Best of all it gave me reasons, visions and understanding of what I was capable of, and exercises that developed my skills.
I recorded my notes on a cassette and listened over and over until I began to believe and achieve.
Today I was searching for a gift for my struggling grandson when the name I remember most as helping me over the top came to mind. Thank you Thermon Q Dumont.

You all know times when you've thought of a great idea that you abandoned after you allowed negative thoughts to tear it to shreds. Or perhaps you began an important task but didn't complete it because you just couldn't keep focused. Maybe you've found it difficult succeeding in business or advancing in your career because of indecision, timidity, or lack of mental poise.

Dumont writes that the three reasons you cannot concentrate are 1) Deficiency of the motor centers; 2) An impulsive and emotional mind; and 3) An untrained mind. He teaches why concentration is so important and provides several exercises in improving concentration and will power.

"Success is assured when you are able to concentrate for you are then able to utilize for your good all constructive thoughts and shut out all destructive ones. It is of the greatest value to be able to think only that which will be beneficial."

The chapters are:

1. Concentration Finds the Way
2. The Self-Mastery: Self-Directing Power of Concentration
3. How to Gain what You Want through Concentration
4. Concentration: The Silent Force that Produces Results in All Business
5. How Concentrated Thought Links All Humanity Together
