The title indicates the type of book which the author has given us. The techniques he is pleading for are referred to as ""RPC"", as they represent a combination of religion, psychology and common sense. The author has had legal training which helps him in his reasoning processes. He has been a teacher and knows that you must get your ideas across. He is an agriculturalist and thus knows that it is results that count. For the elaboration of his ideas he is indebted to Alcoholics Anonymous, to the Moral Rearmament Movement and to the writings of Dr. Norman Vincent Peale. He is not a protagonist for a particular kind of faith- just faith in God. A person might be any kind of a Christian, a Jew or a Mohammedan and still live out the principles of this book. Valuable for those who approach the problems of life from their own recognized psychological need of peace and power within -- but do not look for another Power of Positive Thinking.
