Beyond Socrates, beyond Freud, Roy Masters brings you face to face with the reality of your own being. Will you dare to see the truth?
Engaging, revolutionary, and humorous, this book, like no other, can lead you to see your own deepest secrets. What was baffling will become clear. What created pain will provide joy. Roy Masters is a living spiritual giant whose words reawaken you to the truth contained in the depths of your own being.

Today, precious few see the miracle of the availability of clear, unambiguous answers to life's major questions; answers hidden from human access for a millennia or more. I have found no other who speaks, as Roy Masters does, to the growing pain trapped in the breast of every soul, crying is hundreds of languages, forms and expressions. "Who am I and why was I born? Is there really a God and order to this chaos? What about the horror that has become my life? Why am I so confused, afraid?"
Emanuel McLittle, M.A., Counseling Psychologist
Roy Masters' books reveal with penetrating insight that, unbeknownst to most of us, we are tethered to our thoughts in a destructive, hypnotic way which forms the basis of our emotional and mental problems. Just as unknown to us are the spiritual and psychological ramifications of that entranced relationship with our thinking. Roy shows us that nothing less than extricating ourselves from our unconscious state of mind and suggestive state of soul can save us from the tragic consequences unfolding in our lives. He describes for us a meditation exercise which contains in its practice the seed to freeing us from our bondage and slavery to compulsive thoughts and emotions.
Roy's books are much more than an attempt to intellectually and verbally frame our common condition. He has purposed to use words so as to kindle a spark of wordless recognition in us that our lives have gotten out of our control
As a psychologist of 30 years, I can assure the readers who approach Roy's books that they will find the key to the personal problems they confront. I have observed time and again the efficacy of Roy's teachings and practices in people of varying emotional maladies.

Right on target! Roy Masters revitalizes ageless wisdom. For many, one hour with Roy Masters will be more beneficial than years of traditional insight psychotherapy.

What a pleasure and an honor it is to endorse this book!
I have had many years of training in the science of medicine. I have taught in universities and made contributions to medical literature and spent many years in private practice; then I heard Roy Masters' radio program. I must admit I was shocked at first, but I listened. Although some of his statements appear contradictory to traditional scientific beliefs, I sensed an underlying ring of Truth. I was intrigued and sent for the literature.
I was astounded to find how right-on his principles were and how they filled in the gap I had always felt was missing in modern medicine. Today's fundamental misconception that science is the Truth is clearly rectified by what Roy Masters teaches.
The Foundation of Human Understanding has been a great help to me in my work with many difficult problem patients.
I must warn you, however, this book is not for everyone.
Albert R. MacKenzie, M.D.
...I must say, on the basis of 20 years experience, that the application of this technique has made a significant contribution to the treatment of the great majority of those people who have learned it. Particularly gratifying has been the experience with those individuals, actually quite numerous, who do not seem to benefit from classical analytically oriented psychotherapy; but who through the process of meditation do begin to develop insight into their difficulties and thereby a new sense of control over their lives. In closing I would like to add a personal note of thanks to Roy Masters for his generosity and encouragement in the application of his techniques to medical practice.
