What The Author Says About This Book

I looked over those twenty-two books on worry reposing on the shelves of the New York Public Library. In addition, I purchased all the books on worry I could find; yet I couldn't discover even one that I could use as a text in my course for adults. So I resolved to write one myself. I began preparing my self to write this book seven years ago.
I am happy to say that you won't find in this book stories about an imaginary "Mr. B---" or a vague "Mary and John" whom no one can identify. Except in a few rare cases, this book names names and gives Street addresses. It is authentic. It is documented. It os vouched for ---and certified.
"Science," said the French Philosopher Valery, "is a collection of successful recipes." That is what this book is, a collection of successful and time-tested recipes to rid our lives of worry.
Please read the first forty-four pages of this book ---and if by that time you don't feel that you have acquired a new power and a new inspiration to stop worry and enjoy life---then toss this book into the dustbin. It is not good for you.
