Living Among Books
Listing of books does not necessarily mean endorsement of every concept in
Pscyho Cybernetics by Dr. Maxwell Maltz
One thing not taught in schools is how the human mind works. In this book, Dr.
Maxwell Maltz does an excellent job of explaining how the human mind works
through goal setting. You are already setting goals for yourself whether you
know it or not, and your subconscious mind is working on fulfilling those goals
along the natural lines that God created for the mind to work. (When reading any
book dealing with goal-setting or positive mental attitude, be sure not to fall
for the deception of the eastern religions that "I am God." This absurd view is
sometimes an unspoken premise of positive mental attitude-type books. However,
the positive mental attitude type books often teach how the mind works in a very
helpful and useful way.
Alternative Science by John
This is an interesting book about the battles scientific inventions pass
through as they are being accepted. As Orville and Wilbur Wright flew the first
airplane over their fields -- no one could get the local papers to even go out
and investigate. It took President Theodore Roosevelt to send a military
investigator to break the story! And a number of current scientific
controversies are explored. Very interesting.
