Concentration. book recommended, view in google books

The Power of Concentration

I have recently been recommended this book written in 1918 called The Power of Concentration. Instead of buying an ebook, I have searched google books for this text (the author is Theron Dumont) and there are 46 of the 188 pages of this book here as a tester. Enough to get the motivation...

I think this is a good idea to use google books for this purpose, because it is free. This is basically an old style (1918!) self help book. Seriously a get off your chair old time classic.

Of course not to worry about gender. I mean don't feel excluded but think of the circumstances surrounding this writer. Think she if you read he, and woman when you read man if you are not a man. The ‘he’ in this narrative should stand for ‘he’ and ‘she’:
Man/Woman in a broad inclusive 21st century sense. 1918 and such clear ideas post war! Theron Dumont also good for a wikipedia search, he wrote under 3 pseudonyms, his real name being William but his chosen name so French. He also wrote under an Asian name. Fascinating. :-)

Now I just did that wikipedia search on Theron Dumont. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theron_Q._Dumont.
or
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Walker_Atkinson

Gosh sounds very different, certainly prolific, a great writer? well..could be dodgy, sounds a bit racy, has limitations, don't believe in crystals..not a hindu... yet Thermon Dumont's work about CONCENTRATION has impact, interesting insights and practical value.

By following a link on the early wikipedia link above I also realise now that Project Gutenberg has a full copy of this text.

from here either download ( I prefer in uniform plain text...) or simply read online see link at top of page.

Reminds me a little of Paul Cezanne (1839-1906) Card Players Paintings. The Card Players
