From Wikipedia: Vernon Linwood Howard (March 16, 1918 - August 23, 1992) was an American spiritual teacher, author, and philosopher. ~~~ Howard was born near Haverhill, Massachusetts and began his writing career, in the 1940s, as an author of humor and children's books. He began speaking on the principles of personal development in the late 1950s while living in southern California. In the 1960s, he began writing books that focused on spiritual and psychological growth. These writings emphasized the importance and practice of self-awareness.

I can sit down and invest 15 minutes in this book and by then I am knee deep in spiritual quicksand. That is to say, it fills me with the feeling of spiritual beingness that is rich deep and oh! so REAL you can cut it with a knife. I always take it with me if I have an appointment somewhere and have to wait. What a treat. Open the book anywhere and start reading. Whew! Vernon Howard, thank you for all your work in sharing this truth.
