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.

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.

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

This book outdoes several others I've read by leading authors (which I will not name). For nonfiction to grab me like this is incredible. That concentration accomplishes so much more than I ever suspected is a big surprise to me. Theron's approach would appeal to actors, leaders of any variety, spiritualists, psychologists and students, physicians, and anyone who seeks the path to intensive self-improvement.

But its title simplifies its scope, which encompasses poise, dynamism, leadership, mental power, and on and on. I believe this author has surpassed these other famous current authors, and because of his time period, I feel that he must have been enlightened.
