    Book details

Why are women attracted to weak or abusive men? Why do men use sex to degrade women? Why do people become homosexuals? What is the real cause of child abuse? What is the reason for marital infidelity? Why do men and women change roles? Why do you feel guilty after sex? “This is a daring book. Nothing is held back. It is perhaps the single most dynamic weapon available to counter the tremendously destructive influence of the raging sexual revolution sweeping the world. What Roy Masters is offering is nothing less than an inspired alternative between Victorian repression and ‘Hippie’ permissiveness.” —William Wolf, Author of "Healers, Gurus and Spiritual Guides"

Roy Masters—who in his 80s continues to broadcast the longest-running counseling show in talk radio history—started his journey toward understanding human nature in the most unlikely of places. Growing up in pre-WWII England, he watched a performer easily put his volunteer subjects under a hypnotic spell and induced each of them to do strange and outlandish things. How, the young Roy wondered, could a smiling, personable stranger cause well-dressed, educated, competent adults to forget their names? Puzzled by the mysterious power the hypnotist had exercised over his subjects, Roy distinctly remembers pondering the question: “Why can’t hypnotism be used to make people act sensibly, rather than foolishly?” Inspired by the idea of harnessing this baffling force for good, he later pursued the art of hypnotism and established a successful hypnotherapy practice. Over years of counseling as well as personal experience, Roy realized that the root of the power of negative suggestion lay in our wrong emotional response, and so he began to search for a way to help people overcome the hypnotic power of stress. After years of searching, he discovered a remarkably effective meditation method, and has been teaching it—with spectacular results—ever since. For over 50 years Roy counsels people primarily through his internationally syndicated daily radio program Advice Line, where callers discuss their most intimate problems and find genuine help and healing. He has served as a daily voice of sanity and conscience to his listeners, with the uncanny ability to zero in quickly on core problems. As the institutional home for his counseling work, Masters’ formed the Foundation of Human Understanding in 1961. Through his daily radio broadcasts, lectures, seminars, his 18 books, countless audio and video programs—and the Internet—he has helped millions worldwide. He has also established a successful prison outreach and an innovative private K-12 school. Beyond all this, and at a time in life when most people would have long since retired, an energetic Roy Masters is delving deeply into yet another long-time interest—physics and cosmology. He has authored “Finding God in Physics” as well as a more technical treatise, “Gravity Driven Universe” and has lectured on “Electricity from Gravity” at the American Physical Society in Denver. Roy Masters and his wife, Ann, have been married since 1952. They have five grown children and 18 grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Review Text

  • By another Amazon customer! on July 19, 2015

    Most of us understand what we see as human sexuality in the most material, and misleading, of terms. There is a complex, eternal interweaving of spiritual forces that define it, and, to a breathtaking degree, us. The most important choices in our lives tie into sexuality, but this is only the surface of the power of sense-based relationships. This book is the searchlight in the wall of darkness that define so much of our thought, and by those thoughts, who we think we are. This book should be required in all high school health classes.

    No other book I read has so much to tell about our human condition. I thought I knew a lot but I guess I don't. Highly recommended.

    This book gives insight to the theory of Original Sin and the implications of our decisions. The word "ignorant" best describes my view of the male/female relationship and what blind faith in others can due to awaken one to reality. If there is a God and His word is shared with us thru the bible, then a word to the wise. Learning the passages and choosing to live by its script, may help to prevent or resolve a lot of heartache in marriage relationships. But a word of caution, I'm only able to speak in hindsight. I wish you "preventative maintenance". Enjoy!

    Ok, I get it. I'm self absorbed, I'm imperfect, it's my fault, I should get a grip. Did I miss anything about how messed I am from my upbringing and you've got the answers? My wife laughed and then tossed the book back after about five minutes declaring this guy an impractical idiot.That's a good way to put it. Nothing here will make your life better unless you're a sexually repressed person who needs to be told it's okay to have sex for reproduction but that thing don't go in your mouth.There are far better sexuality books out there that are meant to treat most everyone and not make you a robot. This guy should only be sold in Christian book stores because that's where he belongs.

    The things I have read in the book are amazing! Half of the things that were written by Roy, I saw within myself and boy did it hurt. It's unbearable, but its true!

    As American women degrade their own bodies, good honest men find it more difficult to find true love.
