A Man of Understanding
A Noted Scientist's Guide to Happiness and Success
by Frank M. Berger, MD
(ACB Publishing, NY)
Dr. Frank Berger (1913-2008) introduced the ground-breaking tranquilizer “Miltown” in 1955, which improved millions of lives and changed modern medicine. Despite this, he never gave up seeking a deeper solution to human distress. During the distinguished career that followed, this vastly curious scientist collected ideas that helped his understanding of the world. Here he offers a formula for achieving the happy, successful life he’d enjoyed and an A-Z of his stimulating views. Remarks by Einstein, Confucius, Joseph Campbell, Warren Buffett, Jackie Mason and others support and amplify them. Dr. Berger had concluded that though we can’t overcome life’s uncertainties, we can greatly increase our ability to handle them with grace and ease. He shows that learning to see things for yourself and determine your own views, rather than accepting those handed down by others, can provide enormous inner strength, clarity, and confidence. You can create a set of beliefs that better outfit you for success and happiness. His catalog of 60 “views on many subjects” is meant as a springboard to inspire you to form your own. Jump into the book and discover for the first time what you really think about things—and see if it changes your life.
"The goal of this guide is to liberate us from being tormented by the perplexities that arise when we observe the world around us and show that it is possible to live a rewarding life without the answers to the eternal questions." Dr. Frank M. Berger
