I read this book, since I seek tools for self-improvement. "Control your mind, and you control your reality."

I first surveyed numerous other candidates, which I found complex and convoluted.

This book provides a straight-forward, non-secular approach from which any reader can quickly gain the benefits of a peaceful, focused mind. The authors demonstrate that you can achieve this mind-state, anywhere, and anytime. I find these tools very useful.

You will enjoy reading the book, but moreover, you will carry its learned tools forward: control your mind, and you control your reality...it works!
