"Mind Games has reached classic status. Masters and Houston
have used their accumulated decades of research experience to help
readers regulate their own consciousness as well as direct programs
for their friends, family members, students, and business
associates. If I had to choose one book that has the potential to
transform its readers' lives for the better, that book would be
Mind Games. Its transformative capacities are evident on every
page." --Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., Saybrook Graduate School,
co-author The Mythic Path and co-editor of Broken Images,
"I can remember discovering Mind Games in the early 1970s and how it spoke to my mind and heart so directly then. It is even more relevant now because its tools and techniques can provide the soul sustenance needed to embrace the new millennium with all its challenges and possibilities. May it open the doorway to the deep adventure of life for millions as it did for so many of us two decades ago." --Michael Toms, co-founder, host, and executive producer of New Dimensions Radio and co-author of True Work: The Sacred Dimension of Earning a Living--Reviews
