About the Author

The book is five star, the Audible longer and different version is better than this one, but even with outdated examples you will find this version helpful if you are knew to the book.
The language is a little bit outdated and brings you back to a time without the high pace of technologically enabled communication that we have today, but the underlying principles of human nature remain unchanged. This is an easy read and worth the money, especially if you can find a used copy.
Giblin says, First we are all Egotists. Second, We are more interested in ourselves, than in anything else in the world. Third, Every person you meet,deep down wants to feel important, and amount to something and value. Fourth, to be approved by others, so that they can approve of themselves.
He gives the triple-A formula, Acceptance, we all hunger to be accepted, AS WE ARE! Why do people always want to change people. Before your married, you are one way, then after your married a whole new set of rules, form from one side or another, then you don't like the change? Second Approval, we all hunger for approval, given credit for what we do, and how we did it. Approve of a person's hobby more than just his job goes a long way. Appreciation, which really means to raise in Value, not lower in value. People Act or Fail to act, to enhance their EGO.
In Chapter 6 he writes about a cure for incorrigible children. This whole book is just fantastic as you can see from the reviews. I have read and reread this book over and over and have bought this book over and over to give to friends and relatives. Their are two books that have changes my life, this book and How to Develop your Thinking Ability, By Kenneth S. Keyes, and I haven't been the same since.
A little gift I would like to give to all of you, It costs nothing, but creates Much.
