In content, format, and illustrations this book is far above the average of ""self help for your personality"" books. The author is a Professor of Psychology at Syracuse University and advisor on human relations to numerous business concerns. He is concerned to help individuals in their search for quality in living, to increase their capacity to appreciate and enjoy the world about them. ""The secret of those who have learned to live well"", ""enlarging your perspectives"", ""making problem people interesting to us"", ""becoming an interesting person to others"", ""the benefits of a personal philosophy"" -- these are some of the approaches made to qualitative living. Religion is called ""the greatest of all the arts"" and given but incidental attention. As in all such books the philosophy of life advocated is self-centered.
