About the Author
Courage, strength and determination may be words to best describe the demeanor of John Christopher Bader; a product of abuse as a child growing up, he has also felt the agony of losing his first born child. A life complicated with low self-esteem, depression and hardships that have only championed his resolve as an adult. John Christopher Bader is not a doctor or a studied philosopher; he is just a unique person. He has seen the darkest shadows life can impose on an individual and yet, found a way to live apositive existence. His first book, The Sixth Tier, is a handbook to enlightenment. The knowledge he has to offer is a simple way of organizing life's complexities to make them more palatable. The Sixth Tier is a path less traveled on the road to finding happiness in a world of indifference. His hope is that through reading this, you will discover that you, like John, are not alone in your thoughts; that you may find truths in these pages that began as poems and evolved into a philosophy of being that allowed John Christopher Bader to see himself clearly for the first time.
