About the Author
Vernon Howard broke through to another world. He saw through the illusion of suffering and fear and loneliness. From 1965 until his death in 1992 he wrote books and conducted classes which reflect a degree of skill and understanding that may be unsurpassed in modern history. Tape recordings of many of his class talks are available.
Today more than 8 million readers worldwide enjoy his exceptionally clear and inspiring presentations of the great truths of the ages. His books are widely used by doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors, clergymen, educators and people from all walks of life. All his teachings center around the one grand theme: "There is a way out of the human problem and anyone can find it."

One of the most impressive phrase I read from V. Howard was: A rational mind cannot suffer. Well, that my be true, say in the case of a Star Trek character, Mr. Spock, who may be said to be totally rational and logical (although from time to time, he does suffer as well, in some episodes of that iconic series.. (ohh by the way, why don't they come up with such iconic series these days, one wonders..). Ok, getting back to our subject, well, it's like you realize that if you loose so many pounds you will be healthier and will probably live longer... and yet.. and yet... so many millions are unable to accomplish this. Why? My guess is that the frontal part of the brain, the more recent development in evolutionary sense, realizes the correct action but the more primitive, emotional, part does not go along with it. Of course, this comment applies to all addictions, not just food addiction and obesity. It is sad, very sad, but still, it is a fact of life..
In this book, as well as in his other valuable books, Vernon Howard makes is sound nice and simple, and doable.. Maybe he was lucky enough to realize such ideas himself -- we will never know, will we?-- but what he should have added was that it is not as simple as it sounds. Nevertheless, one thing he is superb at is the correct diagnosis of the crazy world we live in..
