  • It took me 41 years to learn the central insight that generated this document, now in its 8th edition.   (click HERE for ver. 9)
  • It is the primary outcome of 14 years of deep psychological investigation undertaken, while living in seclusion, by my soulmate and research colleague, Anita McKone, and myself from 1996 until 2010.
