He swore not to tell anyone about
the 12 books he purchased for $1,000

In fact, he had to have his handwriting analyzed before the private publisher would sell them to him in the first place. The publisher, a little paranoid, was concerned, because the contents of the book could be used to destroy as well as create.

In confidence our client, John, told Paul and me about the books almost 20 years ago. It seemed directly out of "Raiders of the Lost Ark." But when he reluctantly allowed us to read the first book, it became a reality, not a dream.

Our thinking thoroughly and completely transformed. The book opened our eyes to the REAL workings of the world. And, it became the foundation for our way of operating at Learning Strategies.

Back in the 1920s, the original publisher wrote:

"You are taught how to apply Power toward the achievement of your ideals, the satisfaction of your longings, the accomplishment of your definite purposes.

"You are taught how to become a Master of conditions and circumstances, instead of being their slave.

"This book is different in many respects from anything you ever have read. Its teachings, it is true, are not for the spineless or fear-cursed; rather they are for the full-grown, strong, courageous, daring men and women who are the true individuals among the mass of counterfeit personalities. Its words are charged strongly with the vibrations of Mastery and Power."

A very limited number of these books were printed in 1922. I have been told that they weren’t ever made available to the mass public, but only on an invitation basis to a select few people of influence and power. The who’s who of names include the Rockefellers and Charles Schwab. Based on a passage in the Inaugural Address, I was told that a set of the books had been passed on to the first President Bush.

John, bound by his word to keep the books private, would not let us read the other books. Paul and I searched for a complete set of books for years and finally found them in the archives of an old library out east.
