About the Book

            This work’s 2 volumes contain 72 letters written between 1999 and 2005. Each went to a male prisoner born September 19, 1979. They sought to turn him away from his addiction to crime. It’s doubtful they succeeded. That’s a minor issue. While trying to increase the receiver’s self-knowledge, the author increased his own to the point that, on August 1, 2004, he suddenly found himself apparently freed from 2 of his own addictions. One had plagued him for 55 years and the other for 64 years. The author now hopes that the self-knowledge con­tained in these 2 volumes shall free many addicts from their addictions. If so, these 2 volumes constitute one of the most important self-help works ever written.

About the Author

Born April 13, 1936, in New Orleans, Louisiana, the author graduated from Jesuit high school there in 1953, joined the U. S. Air Force on Dec. 7, 1955 and was honorably discharged in April of 1960. From Nov. of 1962 to Aug. of 1975, he went back-packing looking for much time to reflect upon self, God, and the nature and purpose of reality. He then cared for his father until his death in 1981 and his mother until her death in 1996.

In this work’s two volumes, the self-educated author of 16 self-published books presents avenues of thought down which his mind was lead by thirteen years of heroically intense introspection followed now by thirty years of moderately in­tense introspection.
